What Can I Say?

Ok, much for keeping up with posting - again.

It seems that Facebook has made blogs seem almost useless. How much do I have to say that hasn't already been said there? Or how many readers do I have that don't see my Facebook posts? I always seem to think that everyone who reads my blog posts already know everything that is in them. Oh well....we'll see what I can come up with. :)

Currently, I'm working on knitting a chemo hat for a lady at church. It's a pattern from that was given to me by a friend. So far, it;s turning out quite nicely.

Speaking of Knit Picks...I got this pattern from them and made it as a Christmas gift. I absolutely love the pattern!

I've also been working on a pair of socks. Spiral Tube socks with Paton's stretchy sock yarn. I have one done, and I'm pretty happy with it. Now I need to finish the other....

One of my Christmas gifts was a graphic tablet. It has made working with graphic art in PhotoShop so much more fun! I made a couple of desktop wallpapers for my Mom with Tigger in them. Here they are:

You can see all of my other recent creations in my Picasa Web Album where I upload them as I make them. :)

We've been enjoying the warmer weather we've had off and on here. I take walks with Ahnnah every day that I can. We've found that if you walk up our road and continue on to the part that's mostly unused, we pass the well and the old horse stables and end up on a gravel road...that's very squishy when it's wet. It's wet quite often, because when the well is full, the overflow runs out and down across the road. Sometimes, there's a steady stream running across the road. Eventually it ends up at a dead end where it circles around a big tree. It's perfect though, because if we walk at a good, brisk pace all the way to the end and back, it takes a full hour. :)

We had an ice storm hit our area about a month ago. I took some really neat pictures of ice-covered things. I've had my uncle's "old" camera for the past couple of months. He let me borrow it when he got a new one. Being a professional photographer, he has nice cameras. :) I LOVE this camera! It's a Nikon D80.

And we had a big snow....

Well, not bad for spur of the moment, huh? :) We'll see if I can come up with more soon...
