Talking of gifts and knits

It is very cold, nay freezing here in Moggie land. It didn't thaw on top of the cars til well after lunch and it is already freezing again. We didn't go out til mid afternoon and that was only to post a couple of swap parcels(SP13 and posh swap). A very speedy dash around the supermarket for essentials and we are home.
I have a couple of photographs to show you.
Firstly yesterday we called on our Ursine friends for lunch, bagels with cream cheese and roasted peppers followed by raspberry buns. Very tasty. Ursula has been making some marvellous felt items to hang on festive trees so we had to get both grandsons one each. Then of course we also had to have some. Mr Mog chose a snow lady and I chose a tree. They are beautifully made and will join our treasures for Yule.
Ursula gave me something to keep me warm over winter, look at this:)

Fits me perfectly and is warm and toasty. Thank you Ursula. Wearing it today.
I did some more knitting, this moebius is on its way to my Posh swap partner along with some other goodies. Hope she likes it.
It fits very snugly around the neck and I hope it will come in useful for her over the next few months.
I've lost a little of my knitting mojo at the moment I am not sure what to knit next. I've wound 2 sock yarns together to make a thicker ball and I am going to probably cast on a pair of socks for moi. That is well and good but what else to have on the needles at the same time? I've been browsing Rav for inspiration, I suspect it will be a neck warmer.

Oh, I totally understand losing the knitting mojo. I continue on, but not feeling at all inspired.

Have you had snow? We've had very little here and now it's all gone. We rarely have snow in our neck of the woods; just loads of rain. I can hardly wait for Spring; I need some decent Sunshine ;)

Sounds like wonderful weather to knit in, your new sweater shall keep you quite cozy and in my opinion you can never have too many neck warmers. I did create my first neck warmer (if you would like to take a look at it, it's on my blogm pattern writing may not be my cup of tea as it is still alluding me).
