We took a trip to the zoo with a friend.
We all loved the shark petting area.
Okay, maybe not the sharks so much as
they seemed to try and avoid us.

Here are the girls having fun -- even if it was barely 50
and cloudy.
The Rhinos were cool.

And look - Spring has sprung here in Indiana.

Finished Projects

Okay, I know I am lacking in my blogging.
But I am knitting.
A friend asked could I attempt to make a USA opening ceremony hat.
Well here is the prototype.
I learned a lot and will make adjustments.
But it wasn't too bad for a first attempt at fair isle.

Another view. Mara has claimed it as her own.
I have also completed a baby blanket for an as yet unborn little boy.
He is due to arrive in May and this will be waiting.

Brooke named it "Cookie Monster Blankie"
because it truly is Cookie Monster blue.

Some Olympic Spirit Knitting

So as the Opening Ceremonies for the Olympics in Vancouver were on the horizon
my dear son asked for a scarf that looked like the Canadian Flag.
Well a little web search for a knitted Maple leaf pattern began.

And whalaaa!
The Canadian Flag Scarf.
I also made a pair of wrist warmers to match my daughter's Jayne hat.
I will post them tomorrow and a photo of my gray sweater that is
warm and wonderful.

A Fun Weekend Was Had By All!!

Okay things are backwards, but we will start with the good news...
My sister & I were blessed with free tickets from our
sister-in-law. We went and cheered the Colts to victory.

Here we are happily in our seats -- see all those people above us!
And now moving on to even more good news:
Earlier in the weekend we had a great celebration for my Mom's 75th birthday.
Here she is with all her kids!

And the glowing buttons say "Jane Rocks Happy 75th Birthday"
I bet you guessed Jane is my Mom.
Here she is with her cake. It was a fun day and visited with friends and family!

Oh and my sweater is done and I wore it -- will wear it again and get a picture.

Photos of my Newest Creations

Here it is -- the felted beer bottle cozies!
I made 3 to give away to some special people.
Since this only took about 1 hour to knit and about 30 mins in the washer...
and scrap yarn...I can see that I will be making many more.
This was the prototype - so I think I will make them a bit wider -- they fit my
hand comfortably but I can see needing wider ones for guys.
Oh and I finished this last week. And sorry but it is all mine.
It is warm and soft and easy as pie -- just take 2 different balls of
self striping yarn and switch them every 2 rows of this 1x1 rib.
I love it and got yarn to make a hat soon -- won't match quite like this but close.
