Easter Snow!

That's right folks it was 84 on Wednesday and today when I got up snow! The day before Easter. Hope folks don't freeze in their lacy spring dresses tomorrow! Apparently, mother nature felt like February would be a good Easter gift and brought it back!
We have had periods of sun all day and in between the sun breaking through the clouds we have had.....snow! It didn't stick it was too wet you can't even tell it was ever here. But I have the pictures to prove it! LOL. My hosta's are wondering why they bothered to even poke their little leaves through the ground.

It has made a good day for blogging, reading and knitting and I have done them all. I am worked on the Baby Bog Jacket today. I finished a book little book called Murder at the Monk's Table. I am still reading The Friday Night Knitting Club. It is not my usual kind of book so it is taking me a while to get through it. Not to mention that on Friday, I received my copy of Stephanie Pearl-McPhee Casts Off! Yep that's right, the Yarn Harlot was in my mailbox! I was so excited. But I wanted to finish these other books before I started it so I could give it my undivided attention.

I started a new blog today for my "other" hobby... amateur radio. Rather than having knitters eyes glaze over by talking about it here, I started a HAM blog. If you would like to see what HAM (that's what we call amateur radio) radio is all about come on over to www.oldvirginiaham.blogspot.com you might find your will have a new hobby in no time. HAM are awesome people just like knitters. They do a lot of community service so I think some common ground can be found there because knitters are born givers!


Back to the Bog Jacket I am begging to think I didn't buy enough yarn. I bought 10 balls which should have been enough according to the instructions of 5 four once balls, but I am one and half balls into it and not even half way to the mark I need to be for class next week. I may have to go see if I can get some more just in case.
I am paranoid now after the "sock" incident, but I can't talk about that just yet.
Otherwise the jacket is coming along very nicely, it is quite easy really. Of course, I haven't done anything like the sleeves yet! LOL. I am thinking about what kind of buttons to put on it. I am thinking something with little butterflies or bumble bees. That would go with the pink, yellow and green of the colorway. I plan to put an I-cord trim on in in yellow. Will post pictures as soon as it looks like something. Til then.....

Happy Knitting!
