oh, I really really love that yarn! I saw her blog post about it, but had to step away from the pc.... sigh. so pretty! I can't wait to see what you knit up

how about coming for a visit? 83 degrees today. I got sunburned (again) at soccer and the boy played in the yard with the hose and dog. wet dog, yum!


Wow! Those colours! I took the link (thank you!) how amazing is that yarn?!?!?!? I'm really looking forward to seeing how it knits up.
We'll be celebrating Avery's birthday this weekend, his 33rd! (his birthday is the 21st)... weather is a bit on the cool side but no freeze alerts. Take care and stay cozy!


I'm glad you like it! I would love to plant fruit and vegetables in containers here, but there are just so many bears in the neighbourhood, they'd be permanently camped on our patio if we did. I'm definitely looking forward to some planter boxes with herbs and flowers though. As soon as it stops snowing... argh!


Brrrr....this is crazy weather. I'm going to be up in your town in the next couple of weeks and I am sure hoping things warm up a bit!! Container gardening sounds like a really good idea.


Ooh I hope you've given and cast them on - beautiful yarn. Sorry to hear the weather is cold and you can't show off that great pedicure. Hope spring gets there soon for you. I've got a lovely weekend of seeing friends and crafting planned - what could be nicer :o)

Interweave Knits had a great tutorial a few issues ago on a 2x2 rib sock that was lovely to knit. Sorry about not having the specifics at hand. LOVE the yarn - anything will look wonderful!
I'm laughing at your weather (in a good-hearted way, really!). I was sweating up a storm in the 80 degree heat today trying to figure out how to build a chicken coop. Many, many steps. Most without any real instruction. Keep hope alive - you'll be sweating soon, too!


Vanilla socks are my mainstay for quick knit socks. (LOL, I consider two weeks quick.) Those shouting colors will get noticed no matter the pattern.

We're having freezing weather down here too. It even snowed today. I was visiting a friend who reminisced about her son's seventh birthday party, 43 years ago, when the boys played in the falling snow, in Portland, on Apr 23.


I love that way of finding colors.

Sorry about the weather. If it's any consolation, we're not going to the beach any more either -- not as cold as yours, but cold again.


That yarn is so nice and cheery, and the warm colours a perfect counterpoint to the chilly morning here.


That is such pretty yarn!


Love the new yarn!

I had a nice, productive day Saturday. Yard work, cleaned the garage up some, etc, but Sunday morning my back went out on me. That put a halt to all other plans.
