A Fun Adventure
Yesterday was so beautiful, we rented a car and went to Gig Harbor, one of our favorite places. Of all the times we've been there, we never walked on the Donkey Creek Trail.
The trail goes under the road and along the creek and past this old school house which is visible from the bridge.
The school house is part of the history museum where we also saw this old fishing boat. (Next time we may get tickets to explore the museum.)
Then, at the end of the trail we saw an amazing monument that overlooks the water and provides some more history of the area.
And to top everything off, it was great to see lupine blooming, too, a sure sign of spring!

Finally A Post!!
The first spring flowers have definitely brightened our days. The first to bloom were the daffodils and primroses, and just the other day the trilliums surprised us.
Flowers sure do brighten the day, don't they? Happy Spring! I just finished my first project for May and will share it soon. Hugs to all of you!

Another Hat and a Few Flowers
Despite our recent spring-like weather, I've been working on a hat with a pattern I got from a knitting friend. The pattern turned out to be free, and I even had some appropriate yarn. I decided to try to convert the pattern which was for a slouchie hat and make just a "normal" one. And here it is! Boy, does bulky yarn ever knit up quickly!

I have been working on some WIPs lately and finally finished these mitts, one of which was completed in the last century. Sigh, and now I know why: after finishing that one, I decided it was enough. This pattern is probably the most difficult one I've ever done. However, I have enough beads to do it again, but not for a while, that's for sure. Besides, I have more WIPs to attend to. Are you surprised?
