As pretty as new fallen snow

I actually had to do real work at Job #2 tonight (helping the daytime girls catch up on their paperwork from Christmas) so I have absolutely no knitting progress to show you.

I do however, have a picture of the little present the mailman left for me today...
Four giant skeins of Cascade Indulgence (70 per cent Alpaca, 30 per cent Angora). This immediately got put in the studio because, as you can see, someone was already plotting it's demise.

I got this from the lovely Rachael at Yarn-A-Go-Go. She really wanted to buy a new Ukulele, so she sacrificed some of her yarn to us other knitters to raise the funds. I snatched this up with the intention of hand-painting it.... but now that it's here and it's so soft, and white, and pretty, and white... I'm not sure I want to.

Please excuse me while I go fondle it some more.....

I think the kitty thinks it's an elaborate cat toy and wonders why you want to play with it alone!

Yummy looking yarn -- I love the soft halo of the alpaca.

Well normally I would be all "oh it is so pretty" but with all the white outside my window right now I kind of think making it a different color sounds good - but I am sure that would be a different story any other day!

Can you tell how much I hate snow!

But really, it looks very pretty!

I can just imagine how good it feels! Maybe knit something with it, and if you still want to dye the FO?
