Yesterday was blocking day. I finished a hat and two baby sweaters and decided to block them all today. Was I inspired from this post? Probably. But I'm also ready to gift the two sweaters, so that's the main reason.
This is my third time knitting the One Baby Sweater; I used a skein of Adriafil Knitcol, so it knit up a bit smaller than my last one did, but I love the colors and found the perfect color button in my stash!
I went to a knitting pajama party
last night two weeks ago, which was quite fun. It was a potluck and the shop owner gave out really nice door prizes, plus we did two shower-type games. One was "Guess how many balls/skeins of yarn are in the basket", and the other was the "Don't say the word yarn or pattern or you lose your clip", which is surprisingly difficult when knitting, and was the point of the game. Anyway, it was lots of fun, although between eating and talking, I didn't accomplish much knitting.
Steve and I went out to breakfast and then stopped by the farm market and chatted with my youngest for a few minutes last weekend. Isn't she the cutest?
And yes, that's a hand knit hat I made for her quite a few years ago. Always nice to see her wearing the gift knits. Gracie is super excited about it too!
It's finally looking like spring around here. Lots of flowers, shades of green all over the place, and the birds are really making a lot of noise! I did some closet cleaning this past weekend and took the flannel sheets off the bed. My spring break begins this weekend and I'm hoping to clear out some more clutter and maybe even begin planting some vegetables. My hay bale garden wasn't successful last year, so I'm either going to be more diligent about it or go back to container gardens. So many plans! Hopefully I'll follow through on most of them. Happy Spring!
