Thursday is the first day of Spring, Old Man Winter just isn’t quite ready to give it up…


Once again the D.C. Region is on the “Weather Roller-Coaster”, Saturday brought us temps in the low 70’s and brilliant sunshine! Our neighbors were working in their yards, I see the daffodils peeking through the mulch.
2 weeks ago we were faced with the exact weather scenario! There was more ice however.

On the knitting scene, I finished my cousin Kenny’s hat! The pattern was a very easy knit, I used Rowan ” Lima” in a steel grey color way.

This yarn was a delight to knit with. I’m thinking of using this same yarn for a cardigan.

Breakfast is ready, I can smell the fresh brewed coffee… Be safe on this, a very wintry St Patricks Day 🍀

It’s been a colder than usual and snowier too…

Everything looks so pristine after it snows.


I’ve been busy during theses cold winter days, several projects on my knitting needles are officially finished!
My favorite shawl project this winter has been “Freesia”. I’ve worked this pattern in DK weight yarn and worsted weight yarns.
My favorite yarn for the “Freesia” shawl was “Swiss Bloom” yarn. I got this yarn through a “yarn subscription” service caller Yarn Box. I get 2 skeins of yarn every month 😄, though you can choose to receive yarn every other month also… I love this service!

This is the yarn I got from Yarn Box for February.


These fingerless mitts, “Susie Rogers Reading Mitts” are a quick knit and perfect for gift giving. I love the picot edge.

This chunky weight yarn was perfect for “Burton Bear Cowl”!

The pattern can be found at http://www.thevelvetacorn.com
These cowls are adorable!

I knit the child size cowl in a weekend, the adult took a little longer but that was due to interruptions…

My neighbors dog “Clark” came over to show me his new Harley Davidson Jean jacket…cute

I thought I’d end this with a beautiful sunset…🌞
