Married, SAHM to two beautful kids who are growing up and spreading their wings.
I have my Project Spectrum project for the first two months!! I joined an KAL at the lys store last year. We did the 4 Seasons Afghan. We enjoyed it so much that we wanted to do another one this year. We chose an Aran Afghan this time, the booklet is put out by Leisure Arts and is called, "60 Easy-To-Knit Pattern Stitches Combine to Create Sampler Afghans." I put in an order to KnitPicks yesterday for Wool of the Andes in the colorway Mist. It is a medium gray. I think it will show the cables beautifully. Even though our class or KAL will only do 12 squares, I plan to do 20. I hope the yarn comes this week!!
I am almost done with the second sock of the Rock and Weave Fairgrounds, but I haven't taken any pictures yet. Next time.
Thank you for all the thoughts and prayers.
About a 3 1/2 inch on top of the mailbox and in the driveway.
This was a 2-inch icicle yesterday, today it is closer to 6 inches.

I finished my Marble Arches a couple of nights ago. I like the pattern, but they are a little big at the top. I figure they can slouch a little bit. It amazes me that a lot of folks use all of their yarn and the little key chain emergeny skein as well. I always thought I had big feet, because my feet are bigger than my mom's feet. Actually I went into REI the other day and the guy there was measuring my feet, they should be 7 1/2, but I choose to wear a bigger shoe so my toes aren't squished together.
Last year all over the knitting blogland I saw posts about Project Spectrum. Lots of beautiful colors and projects to go along with it. As I was reading blogs last night, I saw somewhere about the PS2 project. Lolly is starting a second Project Spectrum for this year. It starts in February, and you can check it out here. I am curious to see how it will play out for me. Some of the colors I rarely use in my knitting, though use them in my quilt blocks for other people. I am considering doing more with the PS2 than just knitting. It can be any hobby really, and I am thinking of the digital camera that I hardly know how to use. (We've had it for at least 4 years) Now I just have to choose which button to use, I like both of them.
I started doing some needle felting yesterday. I am using sheets of felt instead of the roving, only because I didn't have the right colors of roving. When it's done I'll show you the whole picture.
