I'm Back to Blogging

Thank you for the prayers and well wishes for my mother. She is recuperating and doing remarkably well.
I have returned to blogging. Unfortunately 2009 continues to bring sadness for us and I need to absorb the sadness before I post it. So I am blogging knitting fun today.

The following temperatures are recorded in farenheit. It is a balmy 1 degree outside. It doesn't matter if it's 1 degree or 15 degrees outside. It's COLD! In my opinion, once the temps are below 20 degrees, it is cold regardless how much lower they go.
A few inches of snow have blanketed the ground and I have been inside the warm house knitting away. This little bunny seems to be appropriate knitting in the freezing temperatures. It is knitted in a square then cleverly stitched and folded to create this adorable little bunny. I must make another one and they will be Easter gifted for two little girls.




Like I don't have enough scarves to finish, I decided to start yet another one. I have been busting to make the chevron scarf from this book. I wanted something fun, happy and cheerful to work on. So I dug around in my stash for two colors of my handdyed yarn that would make the scarf. I'm not so sure about the pooling so I may send it to the frog pond and start over. Although as I'm knitting I have noticed the colors are beginning to blend and stretching out the coloring. I may just knit on and see what happens.
Talked myself right out of frogging that one, didn't I?



I finished my first monkey in the hospital waiting room and I am in love with the monkey. The pattern is easy and the results are stunning. There will be more of these on the needles as soon as I finish the second one.









Extra needles and yarn were with me (of course) in the waiting room and I cast on for these. It's theLeyburn sock pattern. Easy to knit and so far I like the results.

Did I write something about finishing projects, a plan or some such bother earlier? Oh well, I'm on a roll starting new projects and I'm enjoying every minute of it. Pictures will be forthcoming.





p.s. It's 2:23 pm EST and the temp has risen to 11 F. Where are my flip flops? LOL

I love that little bunny. :) I wish I could have gotten my Leyburns to work. Maybe I need to try a different yarn.

Sending you lots of hugs.
