Freezing rain, schools closed, what are we going to do today??? We got a head start on our class valentines. We made 40 valentine ipods. They turned out very cute and were really fun to make. The girls kept saying how impressed they were with themselves!

crazy weather

There is NO snow here!!! The weather is crazy, it goes from a high of 10' to a high of 50'. So anyway, on one of the nice days... here we are bushwacking through the hills!!! I am still wishing for just a little bit of snow...

more knitting

Wow!! I am posting less and less. But I am still knitting away!!! I just finished two projects!!! One is a sweater from Vogue that didn't turn out like I wanted, but I like it because it is warm and I am always cold.

The second is a pair of socks from a Peppermint Patty sock kit from a friend. They were very time consuming, but the effort was worth it!!!
