that's a whole lotta rib'n

One more 'wedge' left on the traveling sweater edge. Then it's on to the arms and back, which should go a bit faster. It'll all be determined by the weather, though. When the sun shines, it's outside to play.

This week brought a nice surprise. The next installment of the Loopy Ewe sock club. I joined this club because they offer different yarn companies each time and I really wanted to try something different. I like the kind of yarn, the patterns are great and I love the Namaste bags, but I'm not too sure about the color. I may end up trading for something that's more my style. Just not a big fan of the yellow.

I also bought myself a bit of a treat. I've been wondering for a while what all the excitement is about over the sanguine gryphon bugga. Well, they have a new deal where they pick one color and offer it in unlimited amounts for one day. Then they go and make as many as folks have ordered. I couldn't resist the dark green and brown one they offered this week, and I immediately thought of the Birch that I want to make. The griffon also had some 'mystery skeins' as well, so I couldn't resist the challenge of the surprise. I just hope my mystery skinny bugga is not yellow. I'll probably have to trade it out if it is. Pics when it comes.

I'll leave y'all with some signs that spring is sprung.......

and a visitor we had early saturday am. We think it's a red-tailed hawk.
