Wednesdays....

Drops yarn

After the initial thrill that spring was here to stay, the weather has changed its' mind and we are back to a very chilly Wednesday morning!

Hubby and I have been for a brisk early morning walk this morning, when the weather was still mild, so I feel fit and ready for all that the day will have in store :) (You can see the cool photo hubby took HERE)

I have lots of new exciting things happening soon and will delve into them as they happen!

Onto this weeks' WIP:

As you can see in the picture above, the yarn that I had for the cowl from last week is no longer portrayed!

 Yip, it is finished! I have mixed feelings about this project, but more about that on Friday!

Jas's socks are progressing slowly, but progress is progress so I am not complaining!

The nice brown Nepal you see in the corner is a "Stash-busting" Project and is for some finger-less mitts for Hubby

On the Reading Front: Almost done with "The Dovekeepers" and after initial skepticism, am now really enjoying this book.

I can't wait for the end of the week when Book 3 of our online Book-club will be announced.

I have already ordered a copy of the book I think will win - how is that for the Law of Attraction LOL!! 
Let's see if I am right, I should get my copy before then so I will show you what I bought on Sunday :) (Now it better win!!)

  2. It is very cold here as well after a warm up over the past few days. At least most of our snow is gone now :-)

  5. Nice looking glove pattern for your husband. Are you doing the convertible mitt top too? I'd be interested to hear what you think of it. I've been looking for a similar pattern for a while now.

    We had a couple of days of spring around here too ... and then it snowed again last night :( I'm so tired of snow and slush.

    1. Hi Minding My Own Stitches,
      I don't think I will be doing the mitt top, he just asked me for some fingerless mitts to wear in the cold workshop when making his knives :)
      Thanks so much for visiting.
