Spring has sprung!

At least the daffodils think so. Not a very artsy picture but they are still very pretty.

And another promise of spring in our yard is violets! They are all over the lawn.

The weather has been in the high 70's and low 80's for the past several days. Trying to trick us into believing it's summer. But this is upstate New York and we could very well get another snow storm in the next month. I hope not!

I finished up the chemo hat on Saturday morning. The pattern is nice but the yarn was a little splitty. And, even though I was using Addis, it seemed to stick on the needles. But the end result is nice.

This is a progress picture of the hooded baby sweater.

As you can see, it is knit from the top down. Well, maybe you can see it. It's hard to take a picture of a project that is being knit in the round on circular needles.

I'm not sure I like the color of the yarn for this sweater. It seems a little busy or something. Maybe I'll like it better after it's finished. If I don't, I can always make another one in a different yarn. It's moving right along now that I'm working on it again. It would be nice to get it finished quickly.

Tomorrow I have to take my mother for her annual colonoscopy. Not much fun for her but I get to sit and knit for a couple hours. I will take the sweater and the toddler socks that I'm working on. The first sock is done to the heel gusset. I might even be able to finish the pair while I'm waiting. If not, tomorrow night is my knitting group so it's very possible they will be done by Wednesday. And that means I'll have my April SAM KAL socks done!

Wow, you've been busy! Love the stocking, and the cabled chemo hat. I also love Knitting ure & Simple's patterns; I'm sure the baby sweater will be great.

Thanks for posting such lovely flower pictures, too. We don't have any daffodils in our yard. Maybe I ought to talk to Avi about that! ;o)

Daffodils and violets! I grew up with wild violets in the yarn, very pretty, and I miss that. You just don't get them this part of the West Coast (and the sun doesn't know it's supposed to RISE at the ocean).

Beautiful flowers there!
