Marching on....

Thank goodness the cold of January has passed and the warmth of Spring has arrived a bit early.  My crocus' are up and the trees are budding--but we all know that Virginia weather can be fickle and we are going to get cold again.  So far March is coming in like a lion, overnight we had 62 mph winds and they're not due to stop till midday tomorrow!

.....but aren't they pretty!

I have a serious case of "Cast-onitis"  
**I'm still working on my Torino Ski Sweater--I have one sleeve 3/4 done and 1 to go.
**Casting on a little skirt for Emmy and using it to enter Ninja Chicken's Knit Your Bottom KAL.
**Casting on a pair of socks for Grocery Girl's March Sock Bash--Cables.  I'm going to design my own very simple cable sock for this one.
**Casting on for Sunset Highway by Caitlin Hunter.        (I'll post pics of these next time)
I need to cast on some Easter projects for all the girls. 
AND...I'm starting to think about dying some yarn.  I played around with it last summer and really enjoyed the process and outcome.  

I made this for little Emmy from my own dyed yarn.  We'll have to see how this goes....

I also have a FO to show....Hubby's Christmas Socks are done.  I gave him the yarn in his stocking and promised socks--

'Til next time......Keep on Knittin' & Spinnin'!!
