Guess What? I have had minimal pain for four whole days. I really think the shot is working. I am still continuing with my physical therapy. Dare I say there is an end in sight. So.......Does anyone else have Spring fever? I am just itching to get outside and play with my flowers. I noticed this morning , the goldfinches are really starting to turn color. I am going to dig out my Baltimore Oriole feeder tomorrow. I had so many of them last year. The last few morning I woke up to all the birds singing in the yard. What a glorious sound that is. The lake is slowly thawing. My husband can not wait to put the boat in the water. It won't be long now.
I am in the middle of a "clogfest". I am sure everyone knows the pattern, "Felted Clogs" by Fiber Trend. I love Fiber Trend pattern. They are always well written and never have errors. I am in the middle of my third pair of clogs. I am going to wait to felt them until summer. They take so long to dry in the house. These are Christmas presents for next year. I am using
Plymouth Galway. I had bought the yarn quite awhile ago for these clogs. If you have been reading my blog for awhile.... You know I am a huge fan of "Galway". I am also knitting a felted bag for my sister. I made her one last Christmas and she just loves it. This one is a bright fuschia color. I need to find some novelty yarn to trim the top. I am going to take a ride over to "Spinning Yarns" in Dover tomorrow. They also carry Malabrigo yarn. The last time I was in the store, I could not help touching it. It is the softest yarn and comes in gorgeous colors. I have resisted temptation so far. I am one of those people who only buys yarn with a project in mind. I am trying to stick to knitting from my stash for now. So.... If some Malabrigo shows it's face on my blog, you have permission to yell at me. I guess I will close for now. I almost forgot..... I could not resist a picture of my sunbathing beauty on the blog. She was so tuckered out from watching the birds all morning :)
