It's Monday already?!

Good Morning everyone!! I hope you all had a wonderful Easter weekend. We certainly did here - inspite of the SNOW!! It was snowing so hard on Friday night - I could not see the vehicle in front of me! All this cold has made the neighbors Magnolia tree blooms shrivel up - it had been starting to blossom last week and was looking so gorgeous. The Forsythia bush seems frozen in time - a yellow sentinel covered in a frosty white blanket. The weight of the show has pushed over the daffodils - they are all laying in disarray - casualties of the snowy blast. As I took Daughter #2 to school this morning it was still snowing. I am avoiding the weather forcast - I don't really need to hear that this will continue all week, thank you very much!

I watched the Masters yesterday afternoon and knit on my SKB - I have the body done - I bound off yesterday! Now all I have to finish are the sleeves and the neck band!! I also worked on my BF socks. I am almost done with sock #1 and will be casting on sock #2 this week!

I broke my New Years Resolution though last week. My LYS had a "sale" and I picked up some yarn for some scarves for Christmas gifts. I also got some E. Lavold Silky Wool to knit Wendy Bernard's "Something Red" . My plan is to cast this on for my next project - I am in a "top down" knitting mode!

Well, off to the shower for me - I hope all of you have an easy "re-entry" to the week! Have a great Monday!!

I didn't get to watch all of the tournament yesterday, but I thought the winner had a good victory speech. :) That course always looks so pretty.

I am sorry you are still getting snow. I think the cold is bad enough here in Chicago, then I realize some have it much worse.

I love to knit in the round. It is such a sure thing.

What a nightmare it must have been getting all this snow! We've been having almost-summerlike temperatures for Easter and mind you, I'd love to send over many sunrays and a lot of warmth to you!

I'm sorry to hear about your flowers freezing up. I guess that's one plus...our Magnolia isn't near bloom time yet.

It snow-showered here on Easter morning, so I wore my Thanksgiving outfit instead of an Easter one.
