Coffe and Yarn swap topic #5

You know with Spring the famous saying goes "April Showers, bring May flowers", please tell us what you like to do when those April Showers are pouring down on you. Do you like to curl up with your knitting, take in a movie or crawl back in bed?

when it is pouring down the rain I like to do several things.. Not all at the same time..
*One thing I love to do is read.. most likely a good mystery.
* Absolutely love to sit in front of the TV and Knit my little heart out..
* You might find me laying in bed watching a good movie..
* Or you could find me in bed with a good book, my knitting, watching a movie and drinking a cup of Java!

Today was the last trip to the farm..
We take our kids from school once a week,
to a therapy farm. There are horses and
therapy dogs and barn cats.

They really enjoy the time there..

Today was a fun field day, we played
soccer with the therapy dogs, and had
a good time wandering out in the open field.

Our next big trip will be golf!

Since some of us is beginning to see glimpse of Spring, while others are still getting snow have you change what projects are working on? I'm working on several projects, this seems to be the norm for me lately.

Have you put away the hats, scarfs and mittens, and brought out the cute tank top sweater projects and lacy wraps? I've never knit a tank, but sure sounds like an interesting project. I have a couple of lace projects on the needles...

Have you change yarn to something more lighter and cooler, not so heavy and bulky? I have not really changed yarns, I also have some socks on the needles..

I guess I'd better get knitting and get these projects finished...

Spring has finally arrived!
The sun is shining and the
birds are singing...

It is a Glorious day!

Feels so good to shed the winter coat,
and wear a sweatshirt or light jacket!

Lots of knitting to be done...........
