Hello Blog

Hi, I'm sorry I've neglected you. I will try and be better I promise. I'm going to blame it all on the crazy weather. One day will be in the 70's and the next day it's snowing. Today we have snow. Maybe I need to write to Mother Nature something along the lines of:
Dear Mother Nature,
Hi, just in case you didn't get the memo, spring officially started in March. It's now the end of April. The snow isn't funny anymore. Please fix this. kthxbai.
Anyhoo I made my sister some socks for her birthday

She really liked them. I'm glad because they turned out better than mine and I had a hard time giving them up. :) I also started on a hoodie sweater for me

this is the back of it. I'm thinking I may be crazy for attempting a sweater but as my hubby has pointed out, that hasn't stopped me before. I also am making my mom a pair of socks. I have one done and I've started on the other. She doesn't know about them so she'll get a surprise in the mail one of these days. They're just a plain blue color, I'm sure she'll like them. I'm also learning how to knit toe up on them. The other two pairs I made were cuff down. These socks also have a different heel and toe on them. I'm not sure which I prefer yet. I'll have to try another pair. I just know when my dad sees the socks for my mom he'll want some. Even though I made him a whole blankie for christmas. He's funny like that.
Well it looks as though it's quit snowing for a bit. Maybe I'll see what the little goobers and I can get into.
