Head for the Hills

I don't know about you, but I'm preparing for locusts, I mean what's left??

It was so balmy here on Friday, I nearly crashed the car when I saw not one but two cherry blossoms in full bloom! Even my birds are molting.

On Friday, this was the temperature here in Northern New Jersey

Along with the weird weather, I've been feeling really strange, artistically so. Remember that Noro bag I just finished? I put it on my head, just to see -

I discovered that Noro isn't as scratchy after it is felted. So I decided to make another one for a hat. I don't like making ordinary hats so stay tuned, I'm going to try to do something weird with this.

The weekend was chock full with basketball games. I got to finish another project from the Sally Melville book

This is Jen's Poncho that I made for a 2 year old. I still have some projects to finish that have to find their way to Italy (my sister-in-law's new daughter) and a few bags for other family members from Brooklyn to Hawaii.

The bag looks so funky as a hat! I'm glad we're not the only ones getting such warm weather in January--weird.

Liking the bag with aspirations to become a hat :) It's getting so cold here right now that I have forgotten what warm weather feels like. I few weeks ago it was so cold for a couple of days that I lost feeling in my fingers and toes. I walked into a shop and honestly could not speak for a good few seconds because my lips felt frozen stiff.

I have to keep getting my holiday photos out to remind myself what the sun looks like and I am counting the days until summer rolls round again.

What did you do when you left IT?

Yeah, can you believe this weather? But then again, there's no global warming, right?

Too funny! We are having a lot of freezing rain and maybe snow in Seattle. Wish we had a bit of warm weather.

Cute knits!

The hat looks great as a bag or a hat!
