Happy Valentines Day!

For Valentines Day I bought myself some new stitch markers and Progress keepers from AdoreKnit , she has some pretty cute stitch markers and progress keepers and she even threw in a tape measure!  My next purchase will be CharmingMinisShop who does hand crafted polymer clay progress keepers, they are beautiful.

The second picture is a newly finished charity hat and the skein on the left is for the new charity hat that I have just cast on.  The color is pretty, I’ll try to get a picture posted in the next week or so.

Hope everyone had a wonderful Valentines Day, even if you are single, treat yourself to something special, you are worth it, honest!!

Last Weeks Snow Picture and 02/02/2020 is a Palindrome Date!

Jan 2020 snow

I meant to post this earlier but got sick, and now I have a pinched nerve in my lower back, ugh.  Anyway this was almost 2 weeks ago, I think we got about 4 inches and on top of the snow we already had, we had about 6 inches on the ground.  Much of the snow is melting because the last few days have been above freezing and today it got up to 50!!!  It’s our normal mid winter thaw.  But colder temps are on the way and more snow, sleet and freezing rain, sigh.  BUT, March is right around the corner.  I know in the mid west, where I live that doesn’t really mean anything we can get snow into May, tho’ it’s usually done in April, 😛  but after this month the really low below 0 temps will get better.  So far it’s been a fairly mild winter, not to many below 0 temps, certainly not like last winter :).

Today was a Palindrome date, that is when the date looks the same forward and backwards :).  02/02/2020.  Just a cool little informational note :).
