Yesterday it was spring….

 but we had snow overnight, so we are back to winter again. The kids pulled on their boots and warm coats, and grumbled a bit as we headed out the door for school. I came back home and made bread – nothing like having the oven on to warm up the house that extra little bit! And nothing like fresh, whole grain and seed bread hot out of the oven.

That blue puddle on my stitching chair is my knitting project – I am at row 118 of Alita – a doily design by Herbert Niebling. I am limiting myself to 2 rows a day – and at over 600 stitches a row, that takes about an hour. My hope is that it will be a gorgeous shawl when I am finally done!
And finally, that is my darling daughter showing off the hat she finished last night on her knitting circle thingy – can’t for the life of me remember what it is called. Since it is rather small we decided it is a toddler hat, and she plans on giving it away to the first eligible toddler she sees!

    Your knitting is fantastic. I’d love to see the design in your new ‘shawl’. I LOVE lace knitting. What yarn are you using?

    My youngest dd likes to use her round knitting loom thingy as well. She’s made a couple of hats for her dolls. ;o) You dd is cute!
