I know I've shared pics of these already...
...but they are finished and ready to be gifted. :) The socks are a matching set for my grandbabies and the blanket is for Linnea to match the pink one I crocheted for her big sister Charlotte when she was born. Secret projects are still in the works and getting closer to being completed! One is being created using this skein of loveliness:
Reading has been divided between my Bible, the 2nd book in Jan Karon's Mitford series, Beautiful Girlhood which I'm leading a small group of young ladies through, and the Territorial Seed catalog. We've used seed from Territorial for years now and always have great success. One reason I love their catalog is the abundant help they provide from sowing seed to harvest and storage.
I'm sure it's obvious from my last few posts that I'm enjoying the early taste of spring God has blessed us with! It's Tuesday afternoon as I write this, and I must confess that I feel a tad guilty for sharing about our amazing weather when much of the country is covered with snow. Just an hour ago AnnaLynn and I parked ourselves on a blanket on the lawn to soak up some vitamin D. :)
Sunshine is such a mood lifter. I was reminded recently in conversation of how the sun is a natural cleanser, of how it purifies the soil. And I got to thinking of how being out in the sun can have a purifying effect on the mind and the mood. Think of the impact of a warm sunny day after a long spell of gray skies. I live in the Pacific Northwest where winters are typically cool and rainy. The smiles are contagious when the sun appears in the sky here. :) The bright colors in the yarn I've been knitting with are equally as sunny. I don't usually tend toward bright colors in my yarn crafting, but I'm thinking I should expand my horizons.
