Yes, I am crying UNCLE. Maybe then we will see an end to this winter weather!! Today we are under a blizzard warning with another 5-8 inches of snow expected. It just keeps piling up. I don't think I've ever anticipated the coming of Spring like I am this year!!
I have been doing some knitting. I finished the Ballband bag and it is ready to felt next weekend. It is almost as tall as I am! (You can see my new little toy next to it, which I will tell you about shortly!)
I also cast on another Lucy bag yesterday and have already gotten quite far. It should also be ready to felt next weekend, which is good since these two bags are both gifts for February birthday girls. This is Galway wool in a black/heather colorway. I think it's going to felt up nicely.
We were suppose to head to Ames today to see A and take him to Des Moines for lunch and a trip to the Apple store. With the impending storm, we decided to do it yesterday instead. (Which is a good thing because we never would have been able to make it today). Well, I was thinking that I wanted to look at Ipods while we were there because my Mini had been acting up. That's when I saw the ITouch and it was love at first sight and I knew it had to be mine! It is the funnest toy I have ever owned! I loaded it with music and photos and that is just the tip of the iceberg of what it can do!
I had an exciting package arrive this week! My package from the Loopy Ewe Swap arrived and it was full of wonderful goodies from Liz. Liz did such an amazing job! She lives near Boston and did a Boston theme throughout the package! The socks are the New England pattern by Nancy Bush in J Knits yarn - Boston colorway! There was a container of Boston Baked Beans and a box of Massachusetts Maple candy. The little mice you see are fancy chocolates from her favorite local chocolate shop, and are just too cute for words! (And too cute to ever eat!) Loose tea (you know.. Boston and tea!) and a skein of yarn from her favorite local yarn shop where the owner dyes her own yarn. It feels so yummy! Finally a set of fun stitch markers for good measure! Thank You Liz!
Sumo is keeping on eye on the front door. I think is monitoring us and willing us to stay home for a whole day! Well, I think we'll be staying put today!!
Until Next Time....
