Since I took the picture I have done another few inches (actually finished them today!) I tried using circular needles, but found them very fiddly. I guess it's what you're used to.
Another work in progress is the weather. I think spring might actually be here, judging by the state of the roads and the few brave flowers that are showing. I love the way these chiondoxa spread have tumbled out of the flower bed and spread into the lawn. I'm glad that they are blooming before the grass starts to grow as I hate to mow in that area while I can still see blue.
Unfortunately the roads aren't as attractive. In between the mud holes and frost heaves, it is impossible to drive in a straight line. We all swerve and dodge from good spot to good spot while avoiding the deep ruts left by the school bus. Once the frost has come out, the graders will get busy, but that won't be for a while.
I did sew two little items. I made a mini quilt to practice the dresden quilt block--not something I would want to do over and over for an entire quilt, but it was an interesting experiment. I got to use up some red, black and white scraps that are leftover from my mother's quilt.
Finally, a little zippy pouch for my daughter's blood pressure cuff--who can resist a donkey? When I saw this fabric I knew I had to buy it as there are two hugely entertaining donkeys who live down the road. They are supposed to guard their flock of sheep, but they much prefer ear rubs and heehawing!
