Clockwise WIP: Khaki Ribby Pulli; Chocolat CeCe; Violet MissBB;
Navy Elemental; Navy Nicole…

Ribby Pulli – 5″ done: I had hoped to finish the Pulli – am getting very close.

CeCe – 0″ done: CeCe forgot to get on the Bus and cried until we all got home…

MissBB – 5+” done: MissBB makes her debut – this was the traveling yarn – hoped to finish a whole sweater in 5 days, right, i was dreaming…

Elemental – 0″ done: the nearest canidate for FO status – only too dark to work on in the wild (dog hair anybody?)

Nicole – 1″ done: Nicole was too good in Cream not to be done in fabby navy wool/silk (hello Xmas party over a navy lace blouse) but ultimately had to hide from the puppy love too…

Actual SnowFall: 8″ ???
