It’s the little things in life that really make a difference.
- A snow day even if it did come with less snow than I had hoped and 50 mph gusts. They closed one of the highways near my house so I decided to stay home with my hubby and kids.
- Having electricity back after 5 hours without it. The kids enjoyed “pioneer day” at our house! Lunch was a little interesting, but we survived. We ate some cold leftovers or sandwiches and were happy that we didn’t have to go out in the blizzard.
- Having some time to work on Hexipuffs for the Beekeepers Quilt. I’ve become slightly addicted to finding mini skeins of yarn on Etsy. It’s so fun to use a mini skein rather than great big huge skeins of yarn.
- Finishing my 3rd sweater in the month of February! With two sweaters, a pair of booties and a hat, we know my new nephew won’t be lacking in clothing.
This is the Modular Cardigan from Grammy’s Favorite Knits for Baby. I used Frog Tree Alpaca’s Mariboo yarn. I have just enough left over out of the 3 skeins to squeak out a matching hat. I did it in the smallest size since I wanted to have something that Baby X can wear almost right away. It’s a cute sweater and a very quick knit. So quick in fact, that I didn’t realize that the sleeves were supposed to be in stockinette stitch rather than garter. Oh well, I think it’s kind of cute.
