Winter is over...hopefully.

With all the cold weather we had this year we only had one good snow day to show for it. We were able to build a snowman, and our great pyrenees just thought he was in heaven.

I'm a little cold shy though. Thank God spring is on its way!!! I am so looking forward to warmer days. Still, the winter gave me time to work more with my Breadman machine. On the days my kids have lacrosse and baseball I can time the Breadman so that fresh baked bread is done the minute I walk in the door. How nice. I also made some cinnamon buns. The dough was made in the breadman. They were delicious.

I am finally done knitting up the garment for my pattern in the fall issue of Cast On. I just need to type up the pattern now and send the bugger off. Thank you for all the kind words and congratulations. I feel undeserving as there are so many more talented knitters than myself out, Eunny Jang...for instance. Still, people like that inspire me. I appreciate great artisans. Happy Spring everyone!!!

Every day that is warm I'm all excited and energetic. Every day that it is cooler I am a little grouchy. Its definitely time.

Well, I don't think your purl wierd, but what do I know ;-)? You are fast though -- I'm still poking along slow as Christmas. Maybe when I grow up and become a real knitter, I'll get better?

So cool that you have a pattern going into Cast On!

That picture of cinnamon rolls has me salivating on my computer. I've not used my breadmachine for making them, but that's about to change!

Thanks Renna! They were delicious. :-)

Oh your Great Pyraneese is beautiful! That fact is just precious. Thanks for stopping by my blog, I love it when people I haven't visited stop by because then I can visit them.
