I was going to start this post by showing you all pictures of my knee-socks I finished last night but....we woke up to SNOW here this morning and it's been dreary all day...definitely not conducive to picture taking. The snow has melted, thankfully, so I should have some pictures to share soon.
The socks turned out very much like I was hoping! They're the perfect thing for cold winter nights, or even cool summer nights when you're wearing shorts. For those of you wondering, no, I do not agree with the shorts, socks and sandals thing, but these do look incredibly cute worn with shorts and no shoes, just around the house. I'm a huge fan of knee-socks so I have a feeling I will be making more of these in the future. The yarn is fantastic as well - it's Knit Picks Imagination in Unicorn. It's so soft and warm!! It is hand-wash, but I think it's worth it.
Today I did a bit of cooking. I made this although I can't tell you how it turned out yet because I froze it to use when we have company over. I needed to use up some extra chicken I had left over after making chicken salad which is part of my Mom's Mother's Day lunch tomorrow. I also made a strawberry-pretzel salad for dinner tomorrow. I thought I'd try and get as many things done ahead of time as I could because I think we are going to run into the city to see my Grandma who is in the hospital right now. I'm trying to figure out how to strategically plan out everything since I'm making breakfast, lunch and dinner. So far I think I have it figured out...wish me luck!
For Mom's Mother's Day gift, I made her two pairs of earrings using two of her favourite colours; sea glass green and turquoise. These are a surprise, she is picking out the rest of her present herself. She hasn't quite decided yet, but she's thinking either some flowering trees to plant in the yard or some lawn furniture.
Tonight I'm hoping to start knitting with some of the new Felici I got the other day, now that I'm done the knee-socks. I have a certain plan in my mind....we'll have to see if I can get it to work or not though.
Well, I should go and get to it! To all you Mothers out there, Happy Mother's Day!!! I hope you have a wonderful day filled with family, love and knitting :-)
Take care everyone and enjoy the weekend!
