It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like........... that 'C' word.
I have been craving spring for quite some time. I don't mind winter if it is covered with snow but a grey, brown, cold winter........ not so much. For several weeks it has been just that. Grey, brown, and cold. Very cold. Every once in awhile there will be a few days of sunshine and warmer temperatures. Teasers. Then we plummet back down in temperatures. Makes a body yearn for spring.
This morning I awoke to this. Can I tell you something? Don't laugh okay?
I wanted to run downstairs, put up a Christmas tree, and throw presents under it! Better yet, I wanted to run downstairs and see a Christmas tree up with presents already wrapped and under it. Like when I was a kid.
The snow makes me happy. I want to put on my Bogs and run outside in the snow in my jammies and build a snowman. I almost did too! Except the couch is so selfish and before I could roll the first ball of snow it yanked me right back and so here I sit.
But! Not before getting a few snap shots of these. I had to redeem myself after how many posts about me ripping out knitted projects? I can finish something. A pair of socks and a stripey baby hat from left over yarn from other projects which I did, in fact, finish, and not rip out.
When I first started knitting, the people at the yarn shop told me I would love knit socks. I pffft them. When I can go and buy perfectly yummy socks from the store for way less money and time, why in the world would I knit socks? They told me that once I wore hand knit socks, I wouldn't go back to store bought. Well! I'd show them! I knit a pair, I wore them, and then I knit another pair......... I am so not used to being wrong! Hee
I've knit several pairs now.......
