Off the Needles and Crazy Busy!

It's been a bit crazy here, and I am very behind in blog reading and posting.  DD#2 is on a business trip, and we've been helping out, our choir is in the last week of preparing for our Messiah concert, and I agreed to sew 10 chair pockets for Jubilee Reach. (6 are done!) And the sun is out which means the garden/yard needs attention. However, I did finish two things, one a new project and the other, a very old one.



This is the last Top This! hat for a while.  Look who sneaked it on while big brother was busy doing a puzzle with Opa. Do you think BB noticed?



Finally, this pair of socks is done. The pattern is Spring Forward and the yarn is Blue Moon Socks that Rock. (Falcons Eye)



And here is Little Miss in HER hat.




When time permits, I'll be finishing up some more socks that are in the WIP pile and will  also try to be a better blogger after our concert is over and the chair pockets are done. Meanwhile, Happy Mom's Day to those of you who are moms!  If you're in the mood to see more knitting, check out Judy's blog.

It is a crazy time of year, but things always seem to get done. Your little grands are so cute! (The hats are, too!)
