The mittens are Bartlett yarn in color Thistle ("thistle" is a word I find almost impossible to pronounce); I used a pattern I found on Ravelry, the Staff mittens. I memorized it almost by accident, and am now on my third pair (for that pair I've added a thumb gusset; will report). The socks are made with OnLine Supersocke 6-ply, Winter Color 1359. I used my basic pattern over 52 stitches.
I am hoping this storm turns into a slightly scary knitting event, but nothing worse. You will hear from us.
