This is what we woke to this morning. I think mother nature forgot to look at the date. It is actually May and our tulips are already starting to bloom. The one plus inch of snow that came down hard and fast this morning was really an unnecessary prolonging of a lovely season that already takes up more than it's fair share of the year.
It is good that I am knitting heaps of hats, mittens and socks. My husband misplaces them, the kids grow out of them, and winter just keeps right on month after month. I had already put away the winter gear prematurely it seems!
They are not super matchy, but I love them and hope he will wear them at least a few times next winter, but if not I will be happy to inhert them. They fit both my 9 year old and I to a T.
These mittens I whipped up using the leftover Noro yarn for the dots and stripes. The other was a wool that I scored at a recent flea market.
Britt, you really have provided me with a great deal of knitting fun, not to mention that they have been transformed into useful warm gear for the family!
I am hoping that today's surprise storm will be the last of the snow for at least a few months. I am working on such fun, colorful and sunny projects now which are keeping in what should be the season!
