jeez louise....i haven't posted in a long time!

i should have titled this post...the sock yarn blanket continues

it's so much fun that i have a hard time working on anything else!

 i did find a tutorial on rope baskets & i've been having lots of fun with those

 it hasn't been all blanket knitting all the time but most of the time

here's my blanket progress so far...

i have to say my favorite part of this project
is swapping yarn with the ladies of my sisters knitter~ yarn blanket swapping group

my first swap was from andi (insert... enabler enabler enabler....but in a very good way :)) which i blogged about here

i joined the yarn blanket swap and switched with these ladies...
let me tell ya, it was a fun mail week! 
who doesn't like to receive anything addressed by hand

peggy  from the same state as myself sent this package of goodness

just look at all those pretty little balls of yarn & a sweet card too!
it's been hard not to pop them out & start casting on but mothers day is
around the corner & i've got mothers day goodies to create :)


laura sent chocolate AND yarn! chocolate with peanuts, my favorite!
i only have the cream color left to add
fun yarn & chocolate candy....what more could a girl want?

thanks ladies! i love having a part of you knit into my blanket :)

it's spring time in ohio and if you are a gardener, it's time to dig in the dirt
we ( i say we but i did very little of the work) converted to raised beds last year

we love it!  
this year the hubs added another bed & a little hoop house
the littles have a cabin near by & we have plans of a little flower bed project to 
make their cabin a bit more cozy
they even have a little clothes line in the back~

how's your spring?

(wanna swap yarn?)
