This and That

Hi folks, I hope the spring weather has officially landed where-ever you may be. We FINALLY seem to have spring here in Colorado. No more snow storms please. I'm not usually one to complain about the snow, but I guess May 15th is my limit.

With the weather warming up the calendar begins to fill with fun get-togethers, trip, and cook-outs. I'm very excited about all the trips and visitors we have planned for the upcoming months, but more details on that as they actually happen.

I have still been knitting even with the weather warming up. My main current project is this "Spring Skirt". I'm about 5 inches father along than that picture shows, but it still feels like I have a long way to go.

My most recent FO (finished object) is the above photoed "Hooters". Truly it is not yet finished, I need to add the elastic strap so I can actually use it, and I do believe I will move the eyes closer together so it looks better when I have it on. Not that is won't look strange no matter what, but heck, a fun eye mask for traveling is nice little plus.

And continuing with my obsession to knit baby things, we have Mary Janes and Simple Booties. I l o v e how the Mary Janes turned out, but I'm a little meh about the Simple Booties, thoughts anyone?

Garage Sales

The husband and I went out early (ish) Saturday morning to see what cool things we could find at the local garage sales. We are pretty thrilled with our finds!

I scored three old coffee tins of vintage buttons and a down puffy vest, but David really got the most deals.

He found two nice beer glasses, a 1937 Rand McNally Atlas, a Brook Swift bike seat, and good snow skis ($10!!!). Oh and we found this weird little solar charger for USB items.

Anyhow, we had lots of fun. Have you found any good deals lately?
