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!

It's refreshing to see knitting right now. It seems like a lot of folks are feeling burned out from knitting out there in blog land, but it looks like you're keeping to it! Good for you!

Do you like knitting socks? I've tried and I can't get into it. :(

We've been seeing this beautiful weather too! Love it~ I'm just terrified of how bad the summer is going to be now, ha ha!

I was just saying to my husband that I was worried we would a super hot summer since it is already so warm here. Our winter has been so mild and I hope that doesn't mean a lot of bugs this summer!

As for socks, I've been meaning to try for years and since I was given this yarn as a gift I felt I needed to try. At first I hated how my knitting looked on the dpns then I splurged and got a 8 inch circular. That has made all the difference! I flew through the sock and when I got to the heel I just added extra stitch markers and haven't taken it off the circular needle. I'm not 100% in love with knitting socks but it is a great small project to throw into my purse.
