Due to a very late, very prolonged, very COLD spell, all of the tulips, daffodils, and such met with an early death this year. So sad, all of them totally wilted, laying on the ground. But, just a few little heads lifted up to show their spirit. I thought they deserved to be displayed. These are about 1/2 the size they should be, but twice as beautiful as normal (to me!). Hope you enjoy!
On the knitting front, I have completed my "Karen's gloves", but need some assistance in taking a photo of them while wearing them. (I can't seem to figure out how to do that!!) DH has volunteered to help me this evening. Will post photo as soon as possible. They came out fitting "like a glove", and I like them - minor errors and all!
And, I have started another pair of socks. "Anniversary Socks" by Nancy Bush from the new IW "Favorite Socks" book. For this pair, I am using Louet Gems Pearl yarn. It seems I see it being used for lots of solid colored socks recently. It is quite soft and endearing - and I love the color that I found at my LYS! I also managed to purchase several single skeins at great discount, so I see some color-work in the near future.
Trying to keep my spirits up after the recent national tragedy. My heart goes out to the families and friends of all affected. Those of us spared from crisis -- we need to hug our loved ones a little tighter tonight - and be oh so very grateful.
