Dusting of Snow and Some Projects

Well we did get a small dusting of snow on Sunday morning which is a rare thing for us being so far south. You had to be up early to see it and I almost did not get any pics, because I forgot about making them at first. It was so pretty when we first got up all white and crisp looking. But it was cold also so while I made and had a few cups of coffee it had started to melt. My mom who is 73 was excited about it but disappointed that there was not more of it. So now we are left with just the cold and wind! I will be so glad when spring finally arrives! My neighbors yard is full of buttercups and they are so pretty, and my moms yellow bells are in full bloom which means spring is not far behind. Yea!!! I am so ready for bright sunny and warm days. Anyhow, here are a few pics of our dusting, nothing like those in the north experience, but again a rare sight here in the south.Although we did have a blizzard in the early 90's and we had 36" of snow! Once in a lifetime occurrence I am told. Anyhow, here are some pics of projects that I have completed in the last few weeks. I finally taught myself to knit and have made more dish cloths. They are so much fun to make. I have this really big roll of cotton thread so I have made white dish cloths and also I have made some out of the peach/cream color also. Finally I have knitted my mom a neck warmer out of Bliss by Paton's. This is the softest thread I have ever felt of. I originally bought this yarn because it has the same name as my middle daughter and we thought it was fun having a yarn with her name! This one is Bliss Mango:My mom is very cold natured so I thought this might help keep her toasty when she is just sitting around. That's all I have for today, I have more that I am working on but have not made pics and will try and do that in the next few days. I have finished Megs RR block and will be sending it on to Ati in the next day or so and I will be posting pics of it soon.
Happy Stitching Everyone,

Well done on learning to knit, the neck warmer looks gorgeous

I started knitting 3 months ago and I am making few things and really huge lists of things I would love to knit. Dishcloths are in the list too. But I have not idea what yarn to use, as no dishcloth cotton is sold here. Maybe any bulky cotton will do...

Hm, it saved too early... I like what you have made, It is addictive, isn't it? :)
