Welcome May!

I love my flowers from daughter from our Easter together!  They have welcomed in the spring weather and are a beautiful prelude to Mother’s Day.   This is the time of year that you realize just how lucky you are to be surrounded by your children, family, and all those that you love.

I’ve decided (as funny as it might seem) to start thinking about knitting some of my gifts for the upcoming Holiday season.  What better way to use your time effectively and efficiently than to work on your Holiday list now instead of panicking come November and probably not getting all that you wanted done!  So, with that in mind, I have started to knit a pair of socks.  I am using a sock pattern from Susan B. Anderson that is the most straight-forward pattern that I have found.  She makes it seems easy with her step-by-step instructions.  I have decided on a sock yarn with a gray background  and with little strands of colors like blue, dark pink and green, throughout the pattern.  I am using a light weight  sock yarn that is a wool blend so they can be worn comfortably once the weather turns cooler (not that I rushing it!)

I am also still knitting that sweater for myself, though I have to say, it has taken a back seat to my other projects, including yard work and socializing this past weekend.  I hope that I can have it done for the fall when I will really need it!

Happy knitting,
