Winter, Spring, Winter, Spring

It has been an interesting few weeks, with the weather. It starts out cold and we might see some snow, not enough to sled, but enough to look a little pretty. Then it warms up and is raining. Glad that it was warm and rain and not cold and snow. It would have been so very deep.

I am currently working on cold sheeping again, more to make room for those gorgeous Caron Cakes. I love the colors and the feel of the cakes. I know that I have to be careful and not make anything for a few friends of mine as they are allergic to wool, but that is easy enough. I also know that there are many out there who do not like the Cakes. That is personal preference. I also know that there are people out there buying the Cakes at great prices and selling them for outrageous prices. I won't spend that kind of money. I will wait and buy a little here or there as I find colors that I like. I am making hats and scarves for my family (and by that I mean my in-laws and my girls). They have chosen colors that they like and now I just need to work on them. I have finished a blanket and a shawl. The blanket was for my middle girl and the shawl is for me. I get so cold at night and just need things to wrap up in so I can work on the other WIPs that I want to get finished. I work on things a little at a time.

I finished a fair few books for the year so far. I am on track with the Bible reading. I read a little ahead and then work on something else. I have also been on the hunt for a pattern for some yarn that I want to use up and I think I found something to work on.

With my sister-in-law in town I learned that in her area, Virginia and Maryland, you have to bring your own bags to the store every time as the store will charge you five cents a bag. So I am going to hunt up some good bag patterns to make her some bags for shopping so she can save some money. I live in Ohio and shop in both Ohio and Kentucky. We don't have to carry bags with us and we don't have to pay for bags. The only store that I have to have my own bags for is Aldi. I have many bags in my car and I use them and then put them back in my car. I have had to write my name on the bags as I have had some woman argue that the bags were hers and that I was taking them from her. I also need to replace some of my bags as they are falling apart. I have had them for quite some time and I do tend pack heavy.
