Well, it's hard to get excited about Spring and warm weather when this is what you wake up to. Yep, it's snowing yet again. And as I look out the window right now, it is really coming down. After this Winter, I think we get to be snow-exempt next year!! I'm sure we won't get 16 inches today like they had in my parent's hometown last Friday, but it's white enough!
I got a nasty cold over the weekend, and am finally feeling better. I even called in sick Monday to work. Slept part of the day and also did some knitting. I am working on my Swirl sock by Monica and it is my new favorite sock pattern. It's one that came with The Loopy Ewe Sock Club, so I don't think it will be available for purchase until next year (if I understand correctly), but it's definitely one I recommend when it does become available.
I have to say, I don't know how some people get so many pairs of socks done. I must be extremely slow!! There is a gal that Sheri interviewed in The Loopy Limelight who does 3 pair a week!!! She must knit in her sleep!
I purchased a new book last week which is full of fun patterns using cables. (I LOVE cables!) I heard about it from Monica who actually has 2 of her patterns in the book!! Congratulations to Monica!! Lots of patterns I want to try in the future. Just need more knitting time!
Well, less than 3 weeks left until April 15th and the end of tax season! Yeah! I will be ready to be done. Hopefully I'll have more time for knitting, spinning, cooking etc...
Until Next Time....
PS - BIG news from our son, A last night. He applied and was accepted into a class next Fall which includes a 2 week trip to Antartica in December! There were only 14 students chosen and he was one of them. He is VERY excited to say the least. (And Steve is VERY jealous to say the least!) Way to go, A!!
