It's official, it's spring!

I say that *only* because I mowed my lawn today. It was *not* very nice out though. Cold and windy, brrrrrr. But the grass needed to be cut bad. Things are starting to really take off in the garden. Tulips are blooming and some of the plants I grew from seeds last year are sprouting now. I can't wait to see what they are cause I forgot what I planted other than columbine. :-)

I started making a scarf out of some gorgeous yarn I got a Micheal's. I need to get another skein of it though, probably two. :-( My frugalness has come back to bite me. It's hard to get up to that store and I don't always have a coupon. But I seen there are two coupons in this weeks flyer so I may make a trip up there cause the yarn is not cheap.

I can't believe I finally did it :-)

After spending a weekend of *trying* to make a bootie on the knifty knitter (and failing) I made a hat for my DS. Oh it turned out so cute that I decided to make a second one on the next size up knifty knitter. They are so cute.

The second hat I used both green and white yarn. DH said to make him one out of cotton yarn so it doesn't make him itchy when he's working. :-) I think the hat I make for him I will make with needles rather than the knitter. He works outside a lot and needs a tight stich. Although ... I suppose I could try the 1 over 2 stitch. It's something to ponder anyways.
