Waiting for Spring!

When we left Chicago last week, the temperatures were rising. Little did we know that we'd be waking up to dustings of snow almost daily back home! The gloomy cold weather has made it easy to stay inside and knit or stitch.

As a result, I finished this pair of socks~

And this scarf. (Details for both are on Ravelry~link on sidebar)


I also finished my third Sunbonnet Sue block for TAST. This month there were two completely new stitches to me: the whipped wheel and the barred chain stitch. It was a challenge to use them on the block, but I did. Can you find them?


Here's Mocha inspecting my practice piece. I wonder what she's thinking?


PS The sun's out today, so I'm going OUTSIDE!

Mocha is thinking, "if I had thumbs, I could do that." :-)

The kids look like they are enjoying their early spring.

What a cute Sunbonnet Sue! Love the little bows on her dress.

Hi Judy, I saw where you were going to get some sunshine...enjoy! Your Sun Bonnet Sue turned out so cute! I'm guessing the stitches you're speaking of are on her bonnet and the back of her dress? Those socks are beautiful! Have a nice weekend.

You are amazing. You say, I'll just go knit something and you turn out something so very beautiful. Knocks me out.

I agree with Rian. You just whip out the knitting...who wears all those socks??

The grandkids look wonderful and I loved seeing all the places you lived. My niece is living in Milwaukee now...I had no idea you had grown up in the Midwest. Now I know...

Your cold weather crafting is all wonderful! It's nice to have rainy or snowy days sometimes to get that done... but I bet you are happy for a sunny day now! We had a beautiful warmer weekend as a prelude to summer...
