signs of spring

After a few rainy days, hundreds of birds are foraging for munchies, and spots to perch just outside.

Molly helped her grandma Rowena plant seeds at the end of last summer - they are beginning to pop up!

sportin' my own medals :)

Finally! My Ishbel is fini! During the Olympics, I worked my booty off to get her done, and all my hard work (and ignoring the laundry, dishes, responsibility, etc...) paid off! I know I really need to get way better photos of the finished work but these will just have to do till that happens!Jamie's Ishbel made with Miss Babs & Mini Mochi

Huzzah for the knitters in TEAM SQUEEE! And huge thanks to the folks who have made Ravelry an obsession for me. I'm already looking forward to summer 2012!

Go USA hats!

Hearing "My Waffle House" brings about memories of warm boysenberry syrup and breakfast in San Pablo with grandma @ The Copper Penny. But, not so, this time ;) Today, while seeking a pattern for the faaaabulous hat Julia Mancuso wore after her 2nd silver medal run, I found a pattern for the "Patriotic Earflap Hat". Just as fabulous!

Belgianwaffleknit's awesome Patriotic Earflap Hat

Any clue where I can get a hold of the pattern for this one, knitters? Julia was wearing it after winning silver in the Women's Nordic Combined. Swirls, bobbles, garter, stockinette ... it looks like you have a chance to knit just about any stitch you can think of :)
