I'm still around....Knittin' & Spinnin'!!
DS #2, Chase, is a HUGE Red Sox fan...and has recently taken up golf. He went out and bought a new set of clubs with all the BoSox accessories he could find with the exception of one thing. I noticed he had the generic golf club covers, so what does a Knittin' Mom do? She designs and knits him some golf club covers! One glitch I had was the fact that today's golf clubs aren't like the golf clubs of old. Thankfully the #5 club is the same size of the "clubs of yesterday", so I had to re size for the last 2 covers in order to fit these "MONSTER" size clubs. I'm not a big golfer, though I do enjoy smacking the ball around...but these new LARGER clubs do make me wonder. Are they just so that the "guys" can pat each other on the back and say "Mine's bigger than yours"!
I'm happy to announce that I HAVE cast on my first pair of socks of 2008 (I don't include golf club covers as socks...or could I?).
They are for Hubby...he didn't want a real tight fitting socks, so I searched and searched for a pattern that wasn't "too lacy" or feminine. This is from Charlene Schurch ,of course, Sensational Knitted Socks 5-stitch pattern Little Shell Rib. I'm loving knitting it...he loves the feel and the look...every one's happy!
I was tagged for a Meme by Becky

Who am I tagging? If you feel like flashing...go for it!
The weather here has been crazy...but, of course, it's Spring time...at least it was. The last few nights we've had freeze warnings, so my fear was that my beautiful flowers would suffer. I put them to bed everything...yes, blankets and everything...but I couldn't possibly save my lilacs so I cut this bouquet.
Yes, I AM an allergy sufferer...but I LOVE my lilacs! The tulips really opened up beautifully after I took the picture, I should have waited a little while.
We have a big weekend planned..."The First Camping Trip Of The Season"!!! I can't wait!!!!! Spinning & Knitting is already packed!
Hope you all have a GREAT weekend...
Keep on Knittin' & Spinnin'!!!
