i have a little addiction...

it all started with the blanket below
jesse's blanket...there i said it....she is my enabler :)

jesse is a beautiful knitter and always inspires me with her projects
take a look at the socks this girl knits.....amazing!

with the help from Andi of my sisters knitter , the inspiration of jesse & ravelry,
my addiction began.

Andi (my other enabler) was sweet & fed my addiction by send mini skeins to get me started & sent
me to a video on you tube to help me along~

sock yarn blanket tutorial

and tea...she sent one of her favorite teas :)

look at those little bitty skeins..those are andi's
(my yarn is the messy looking balls)
how could you not fall in love

oh the fun this is! 

my favorite part of this project is adding yarn from projects that i have knit
and adding yarn given to me from friends 
so many memories in a single project

if anyone is interested in starting this project & would like me to send
you some mini skeins, just drop me a line :)

pink, yellow, purple, green...anything but white!

i have come to the conclusion that we continue having snow
a. i still have a little snowman decoration on my porch
b. my blog STILL has a snowy picture on
c. i live in the wrong state

i can't do anything about c at the moment
but i did take the snowman down
i've put a pretty sunflower in place of the snowy picture

gardening......and so it begins!

i can't speak for everyone
i think just about everyone i know has had their share of winter!

this has been the scene at our house for most of the past month...
(our house looks


the first of the gardening catalogs have been showing up in the mailbox
giving us hope that spring will indeed show itself  :)

the hubs & i started planning the garden today....yeah!!!!!!
the peas, according to my grandad, should go in the ground on st. patricks day

we did raised beds last year so this year will be easy peasy compared to last

are you planning on planting anything this year?
