Where, oh where has my Bloggin'-Mojo gone?
(Bloggless JH is prodding the "you know what" out of me to update...someone needs her own blog)
Hey..two posts in two days, do you think it's back?
The time changed really did it's number on me, maybe next year (the Fall time change doesn't bother me) I should plan a vacation for the week after?!
So what's been going on at "The Coop"?
Ole McFergus had a farm e-i-e-i-oh!
While catching up on my blog reading, Chan posted about her stitch markers purchased from Anita...I knew I HAD to have a chicken...then it occurred to me that I needed a barnyard of animals! So Anita kindly created this set for me...aren't they cute? Check out the chicken's bellybutton! She even threw in an Easter egg marker.
These are not the only stitch markers I've commissioned lately...stay tuned to see my next set! (I see a 3rd post in the future)
I've cast on for St. Brigid...boy, swatching for this really kicked my butt.
This is most definitely "thinking knitting" so don't look for it to be completed quickly. I am beginning to "see" the pattern which will make the knitting go much faster...this is NOT one of those patterns you will easily memorize but you can "read" the knitting, that is after you get going on it.
I also cast on for a new summer top called "Flirty Tank Top" by Y2Knit.
If you are ever in the Funkstown, Md area you must visit this shop! I'm using Rowan Calmer and loving this yarn...it's soft, squishy and has some spring to it. Love it!!!!
The weather is warming up, my Bradford Pear is blooming...and my allergies are starting up. I LOVE Spring~~but it doesn't love me! We had Milo over the weekend, obvious from yesterdays photo, he is SO much fun. Saturday was so nice, contrary to the weatherman's prediction of 90% rain ALL DAY, we spent the morning working outside...hubby on the roof replacing the many shingles we've lost over the winter...me in my garden...with Milo's help.
I didn't get a picture but he also decided to go for a swim in my pond...needless to say he had a bath.
Well...I'm sputtering here...need some caffeine...or a nap! A nap is out of the question as I glance at the clock...gotta go fix supper!!
Keep on Knittin' & Spinnin'!!
