Happy Monday!

I must be the slowest post writer.  It's a crazy time isn't it? Right now DH is on a conference call with his men's group which usually meets on Mondays in person.  We are finding it difficult to even remember which day it is without our normal schedules!  And I bet we're not the only ones. There has been plenty of knitting going on here, but I'm being naughty and starting new stuff instead of finishing all my many WIPs.  I have been trying to only use stash yarn though......

I did finish this pair of socks and was happy that they matched up. They are supposed to be the Plain Vanilla pattern, but I failed to do the second knit row.  I need to read more carefully, don't I?

Here's my most recent finish.  It's the Tiny Minion pattern, and believe me, it's very tiny! I didn't have any googley eyes but improvised with a button, and that's why there's only one eye. There wasn't room for two!  Luckily there really is a one-eyed Minion!

I know what you're thinking, how come there's only two completed projects with all this extra "lock down" time.  Well, it's spring and our garden's been yelling for attention.  




We've also been taking nice long walks almost every day in our neighborhood which has lots and lots of hills. It's also been nice to see other people's flowers, too.  Well, that's it for now except for one thing:

Kathy Boyer was correct. The snowy photos in my last post were from my sister in Minneapolis. Way to go, Kathy!  Stay well everyone!

So good to see your beautiful post header!! I know how it feels to be so busy in the woods and it cuts in on knitting which was so prevalent in winter!!! We had some sun we weeded !

Hi to Dick!

I love those socks! What pretty stripes. I hear you about not getting things done. I am having the same problem. The Mister goes out and gets into yard mischief and I always have to go out and fix whatever he's having an issues with. Today he got his sweatpants tie caught in the blower. I kid you not. We had to take it apart and get it out. It was wrapped all around the fan. Men. Araignee

The socks turned out pretty!

I think you are right about not knowing the days of the week. I have one day a week when I take TWO pills instead of the usual one. I wake up thinking is this the day? Maybe it's tomorrow. Hope it wasn't yesterday. LOL

With all the gorgeous flowers, it’s no wonder you’ve been spending time outside! Love the socks and the mini minion.

Those are such pretty socks. What yarn did you use? Thanks for visiting my blog today. The blanket isn't for anyone in particular. It will probably go to the hospital or the crisis nursery. We did have a good time at the lake this weekend but thunderstorms Saturday night brought much, much cooler, (colder), weather so we came home in the early afternoon. Today was gorgeous again.

Beautiful socks! Flowers outside are a great distraction for us gardeners! Great blooms.

lovely knits and lovely blossoms. I try to do different things on Saturday and Sunday just so I can distinguish the weekdays, it works for me. It also helps that my husband works from home and he doesn't work on the weekends.

Your garden is beautiful. I planted some plants yesterday and hope they add some color to the back of my house. Stay safe.
