Hope everybody had a nice Palm Sunday rain and all . Two more days of rain and then it is supposed to be nice the rest of the week maybe in the high 60's for Easter. Well it has been a long week but I did get some onions planted this week in one of my flower beds. I still have room for a few more later next week. Can't wait until I can work out side in my yard. The daffodils are coming along. Also the mums are peeping up too.
I am just about done with my Eyelet Hat. Been looking for a lace pattern for another Shaw to put on the needles. Finished one more helmet liner. Cast on for another chemo hat next .
Enjoy the nice week coming.

Nice Weekend

We sure did have a nice weekend. hope you got out to enjoy the sun shine. We had our Knit In at Vickies today with 7 ladies present. Everybody had a different project going while we chatted about the days events and different knitting patterns. Our Guild is talking about having a workshop in October which sounds interesting and fun. Still working on my hat. Started a new scarf with some yarn I got in Pittsburgh, Checked my flower beds and the daffodils and crocis are ready growing. I guess it is also time to plant onions and hopefully we can soon get out and work in the yards Have a good day tomorrow

Spring maybe

It was a beautiful day and the sun really felt good. I did try to clean the inside of my car. I looked in my flower beds and saw the daffodils are coming up so that tells you something. But we still have a lot of snow piles of ice . I missed Guild and Knit In this week because I still am not feeling good just can't shake the bug. I have been working on my Eyelet hat and I have 6 inches of ribbing done and I need 2 more inches. I am pleased how it worked out and I love the color. Now I must do my socks next and get them done for summer. I hope everybody enjoys the rest of the weeks nice weather I am

Victorian Lace Shawl

Here is my Victorian Lace Shawl on the back of my couch after it was blocked. I hope we soon get warm weather and then I can wear it. It was nice over the weekend. But we need more.
I still have the bug it just doesn't want to go away so I havn't gotten to much knitting done.

Well we finely got some better weather over the weekend. It was sunny and in the high 30s and next week it is going to the 40's maybe spring is on its way. Here is my Eyelet Cap which I have been working on this week.I am ready to put on the Ribbing . It takes 8 inches and then doubled under. The yarn is Acero - Fingering wt wool-silk.I am using size 3 needles. The pattern is in Vogue Knitting Fall 2009. I have a shawl on the needles too. called The Traveling Woman.
Hopefully I will get some more knitting done tomorrow at Knit In with the other Ladies. Also we have Knitting Guild Thursday night at 6-30. I understand there are 4 h's coming to learn how to knit. Our Guild does this every year.
Take Care and have a good night.
