It was a bit rainy a couple of weeks ago.

First of all, thanks for the compliments on the sweater! I'm pretty partial to how nice looking the model is, too. He's a great sport about my pushing him into poses, and even had final say over photos showing off too much of his scalp. :P

He loves the sweater, too. Happily, it's much too warm to wear it. Since then, I've been working on a project to submit and one of the rules about it is no blogging. It's my stealth project and has been tough to not talk about. Happily, my Mom has tons of patience for boring chatter and I've been bending her ear when I can't stand not talking about it any longer. Plus, I have some great test knitters who have really been great with questions and the speed of their knitting. They're amazing.

What can I show? How about this? The fun thing is, I've already started the heel flap so the picture is out of date. Why do I blog on cloudy days? I don't know, but the next sunny one, I'll snap lots of pictures for the next gloomy day post.

Spring showers created a pond out of our creek in the back yard!

Sadly, it didn't last very long. This is the same creek where Hubs's sweater pictures were taken, and all that was underwater.

Is spring cleaning done? Well... I can't decide when to let the carpets be soggy, so officially, no. Other than that, it's the usual mess around here.

There's been working out, bike riding, walking the dog, but with Mother's day (champagne brunch), Hometown Buffet, Jose' Peppers, and the looming birthday visit to the Cheesecake Factory... If I maintain the weight, I'll be doing GREAT. :D

ohhh love the sock! I started a little entrelac wash cloth. Got the first row of little triangles done and then totally didn't understand what to do. So it's resting in the stash. Maybe someday my brain will be fully engaged and I can try again.
