Good weather for knitting

It finally turned into winter around here. It hailed on Sunday, big hailstones the size of chickpeas, and the hail has just stayed on the ground because is has not warmed up. It was supposed to snow today, but no sign.
Hail on the ground and the bridge deck.

My latest pair of Monkey socks knit from SweetGeorgia's yarn Tough Love Sock in colour Coal Harbour.

Pewter clasps from Deborah Gremlitz of Nordic Fiber Arts.

The lovely warm violet coloured sweater which is keeping me warm in this frosty weather.
