Still no knitting!

Two more days have passed and still I have not knit, it's depressing. Will I be able to take out my needles on the long ride home today (3 hours). Hope the taxi is not full and I will have room to knit and purl!!

Having withdrawals!

Can you believe it's been three days and I have not picked up my knitting?. On Friday I was feeling very proud of myself. I brought a large bag of yarn to the Craft Council/Anna Templeton Centre for the seconds sale. Unfortunately I undid all that by going to the seconds sale and buying lots of neat yarn that others I am sure also felt proud to have removed from their cupboard or stash. What I will knit with my new found yarn has not been determined. Some of it is baby yard that must be 30 or 40 years old from the labels, Patons, made in England, in it's original box, what a find, wish the cover was with it. I also bought a Granny Square afghan crocheted and needing finishing, bright blocks trimmed with black, a project for the Hiscock House maybe?
I have walked and walked in this beautiful city over the last three days, ran in to some dear friends that I haven't seen in ages and saw the first dandelions of the season, they will be cold tomorrow because the temperature will be much colder the the 14+ of the last three days.

Does anything say Spring like smiling daffodils and beautiful coloured yarns? I think this pictures is wonderful. I can see these yarns in white beanies, they would be oh so pretty!

Saturday again!

The sun continues to shine, you have to love that. I am listening to Yarn Craft a radio-style show for knitters and crocheters from Lion Brand. It's great. They are talking about Earth Day projects.
Today I am going to start on my "taxes" only two weeks and they have to be submitted. When they are done I am going to sort my things for this year to date, no more procrastination, it will be so much easier for next year.
Have the "crew" coming for supper this evening, can't wait. It's been so long since we have all been together.
In all of this when will I knit, must be something on television today that I can take a break and sit for 30+ minutes.
Must run, start the process.

The sun is shining!!!

The sun is finally shining, but still cool, it was -10 this morning, too cold for mid April. We are never satisfied, are we?

Finished a Jelly Bean Row Hat last night, but the other stuff didn't get touched, the weekend is coming I will try my best to get at it.

Looking forward to supper on Saturday with the crew, we haven't all been together for almost a year, too long dear friends.

The morning in Brattleboro when I window shopped at "Knit or Dye" because I didn't think I was going to get in to buy anything.

Will it ever get any warmer!

Another cold April morning, I noticed yesterday that my tulips are coming through the ground, poor things. They might benefit from some small Ewe Design hats! Pretty spring colours, if only I had time to knit them some. Product to price, orders to get out, so much to do so little time. It never seems to change. Come on girl a little less procrastination and a little more work would get you there. Must get ready for work. Have that beautiful wool that I got in Brattleboro at "Knit or Dye" that I want to try, first I have to get my orders ready.

I fully intended to write every day as I travelled but long days and full schedules made it more difficult then I thought. I will have many pics to add when I get them together. I bought some wonderful wool in Brattlebore at "Knit or Dye", now I have to figure out what to knit with it. I finished Ayelet's beanie and sent it in the mail yesterday, it was a very soft wool, so pretty. Today I am knitting ear flap hats to fill an order, or well that has to be done as well.
