Always Knitting

Garden Buried Under Snow

 It was so cold and windy that I did NOT venture beyond the patio to inspect the strawberry plants.

Knitting In Cold Weather

The stitches aren't as even thanks to the cold weather and cold hands but my warm feet won't care!  These are for me and the yarn arrived with reinforcement yarn for the toe and heel.

Evening Snow Blowing

Beautiful Snow White Trees!

 In the time it took me to make a ham and potato with cheese casserole for dinner, we received an inch of snow.  The trees are gorgeous and the birds are steadily feeding at the backyard feeder.

Teeny Hail, then Snow

Lined Knitting Totes - Button Closure

The pattern asks for Velcro but since that always snags yarn, I am using buttons and buttonholes.

Family and Weather

This cutie is in South Texas, the DC grands are snowed in for the third day, Aunt Bev in Iowa is stuck home til afternoon due to an ice storm, and the Denver Metro area thinks it is Spring with sun and 59 degrees!

Early Garden So Squirrels Must Go

 strawberries are peeking above the mulch
 sweet onions growing from last year
 herbs from last year
violets already blooming!  The squirrels are not invited; they eat everything and dig all so they are going somewhere earlier this year.  Last year we started in May after planting our edible garden on Mother's Day.

Squirrel #3 in 2013

Jeff is now driving them away; hopefully they won't return!

Home from work at 6 PM and found him in cage, very quiet, and no not dead; Jeff drove him to Standley Lake.

Squirrel #1 in 2013

He's one of two with some of his tail missing; someone has a nasty trap! 
Poor thing was so scared that when the neighbor boy, age 10, opened the cage, he was gone in a flash!
