Knitting Update

I have been putting off blogging for a while and I really don't know why. I don't know if I have anything interesting to say. But I thought I should at least show some completed knitting projects and some projects in process. First the completed ones.  Here is the pink afghan that I complete for a baby girl born in March but I haven't got with the mom and baby yet to give this too yet.
 I have a friend who is knitting a Koolhas and needed some help. I fell in love with the pattern and had to knit one for myself.  I want to make another one as I was a little big, but I really love how it looks on.
 The next are my projects in process/ I have been trying to use up my odds and ends of leftover sock yarn without doing the afghan that everyone seems to be doing with their leftovers. But the bug bit me as I was going onto Spring break and now I can't stop. I can see why everyone is knitting this or has knit it. It is fun and great way to use up those odds and ends.
 The last project I am going to show you is my traveling sock. I call it the traveling sock as I always have a simple sock in my bag when I go out of the house. This is the current one, the colorway reminds me of Easter colors and the pattern is Carole's Picot Edge Sock. It is nice and relaxing. That is the update for now. 
 I am back to work this week after a wonderful week of spring break off.  It is suppose to snow but I am really ready for warmer weather.

Tuesday morning

I love looking at the mountains in the morning! This morning was no exceptions, who knew by the end of the day the sun would be shining bright?

Snowy Sunday

Well after two days of spring, where the temperatures were in the 70's. We woke up to 4 inches of snow and more coming.  As this is typical of April in Utah, there was no panic, but I did feel the need for coffee several times today.  For once I took no pictures of the snow as I am so ready for spring.

We spent the day at my parents home, just relaxing and enjoying each others company. Which considering how much time we have spent together in the last four weeks, it was amazing we had any thing to talk about at all. We ate food together both lunch and dinner with a few snacks thrown in. Plus I did some knitting.  This is how the sock project started this afternoon.

As you can see I was middle way through the foot.  While watching whatever Dad and hubby chose to watch I was able to finish sock #1 and cast on sock #2. I am really enjoying the pattern and the yarn.

The heel is not one I usually do and when I knit this pattern again, I will do my normal heel as it seems to fit me better. However, this sock does fit really nice and can't wait until next fall to wear them. Mom has ask for a pair herself as she likes the texture and the fit.

Well it is time to finish the weekend with a little relaxing that doesn't including knitting.
