Oh joy, wintery mix!

Nothing like a little freezing rain/snow mix to brighten your day. ugh I wish it would just snow. Instead, we get this crud. What a weird winter this has been.

I just started a pair of socks for a friend using a pattern from Sensational Knitted Socks. It's turning out nicely. I'm using Knit Picks Gloss. It's the first time I've tried it, and I'm liking the yarn so far. Soft and not too splitty. I'll see if I can get a sock picture later.

I've been good so far

I even resisted the Cherry Tree Hill new years sale. I need to go throught the stash and organize now. I have a bunch of things swirling around in my head. I need to decide what I want to make and when. I need to finish Lady Eleanor. I just needed an entrelac break...the thing is huge! I've started the flower basket shawl and am about 20 rows in. I will put in my lifeline at 25 and keep on going. I'm halfway through the first glove of Fetching, and like the pattern a lot. That may be the first thing on my list to finish.

We got a dusting of snow today. It sure doesn't seem like winter, that's for sure. My bulbs are all confused. They started to appear about a week ago. I hope I don't have my daffodils show up in the middle of winter!

Happy New Year

My yarn diet has officially begun. No more buying yarn for the next 9 months! Can she do it? lol

Here's to hoping for a healthier year ahead. I'm happy to be here to complain.

The kids are back in school, so maybe I can get some knitting done today while the baby naps. I had to frog a lace scarf yesterday, dammit. Maybe I can get some of it done today without the 5 and 6 year old interruptions. You should have heard them this morning. Awwww, I don't wanna go back. Is vacation over already?
