Spring Does Not Mean the Same Thing Here

Hurrah for spring! Crocuses. Daffodils. The beginning of the allergy season. Six inches of new snow.

Snow?


It's some kind of hurrah, anyway--the last hurrah for the Utah ski season, probably.

In honor of the last (hopefully) snowfall, I finished a pair of socks yesterday.

This was last month's Rockin' Sock Club kit, Queen of Beads by Sivia Harding. The yarn is My Blue Heaven. Can you see the beads? In the spirit of scientific research, I went ahead and put the beads all the way down the instep. Yes, you can feel beads if they are inside your shoe. No, they don't hurt. But if your feet are sensitive, it would probably bother you. Me, no problem.

And, in a fit of, well, finishing, I wove in the ends on these today:

Despite the snow, I am clearing the decks for spring knitting!

and the cover sweater from Rowan's Organic Cotton Kids Collection:

and a wee Easter cardi from the Nashua Sprout book (although using Cotton Fleece because we like the color better):

There is baby knitting, too, but the due date isn't until August. Plenty of time for summer knitting . . .

P.S. If you are in the Salt Lake area, the Nashua book and yarn are available at NPJ and the Rowan at Black Sheep.

The snow isn't unexpected but it sure does bite after last weeks warmth. The skiers better be happy and we need to water. Love your new socks and the chickens will be fun to make!

I love the blue socks, very pretty.

The Chickens make me smile, where is the pattern?

Snow. OMG. SNOW! You've got a lot of it...
Your socks look great!
And I'm *hearting* those chickens like there's no tomorrow...in the Purelife book, too?
