Happy Mother's Day!

I hope all my fellow Moms out there had a wonderful day yesterday!! Mine was spent quietly at home and that's just what I wanted.  I managed to finish the red scarf and was able to give it to it's intended recipient, my Sainted Mother.  I was so excited to finish it in time - all forty-eight repeats - that I boxed it up and gave it to her and forgot to take pictures - Argh! Don't worry, I know where she lives, so I'll get some photos :)

This is my crafting bag.  In it, you will see brand new bamboo circular sock knitting needles and a gift card to one of the big box craft Mother's Day gift.  I was so impressed because Car Guy listened to me talking about how supposedly wonderful bamboo needles are and started asking questions.  He took note and took The Boys out shopping and this is what they brought back.  I was so very impressed and please.  Now I just have to wait for Mel to return from vacation so that I can continue my sock making lessons. Do you see the sock wool in the bag too?  I'll try to take a better picture of it for you when I have it on my needles so you can see how pretty it is. I can't tell you how excited I am to learn something new. Hopefully next winter, I'll be rocking some really cool socks.

My break is over, so I'd best get back to work.  Happy Monday everyone!
