Socks and Sweaters

Not much new to report in the knitting realm of my life. I've been working on my sock. I've turned the heel and am working my way to the toe. Right now, the sock has been set aside because I am working on Easter sweaters for the kids. Yup, I'm making three sweaters in one month. To be fair, the sweaters have short sleeves so there isn't as much knitting. I've finished Henry's sweater and am a good way through Irene's. I do need to get three buttons for each, but I am going to make the trip to JoAnn's once all the sweaters are done. Then the kids can pick out what they would like. I also want to knit myself a shawl to wear for Easter. I haven't taken on too much...have I?
The last couple of days we've had beautiful weather. It is crazy to think that last week at this time we were at 27 degrees and so cold!

My Mom, an Afghan and Me

A few of my mom's squares
I have the afghan squares my mom made for the Great North American Afghan. I have 22 of the 24 squares. I don't know if she never got around to those last two or if they've been lost. Also, I don't have the pattern book. I want to make the last two squares and put the afghan together. It is something that is very important to me. I have finally found a place that actually has the pattern book! WEBS has a copy in stock. One of these days I am going to be able to get it. Then I will find yarn similar in color and make those last two squares. I cannot wait to have something that will be made by both my mother and me!
