These tulips are growing in the planter boxes just outside my office. They are so pretty to look at each morning.
The Spring weather can be quite fickle here in SLC, but even with threat of frost, everyone is always in a hurry to bring out their shorts and tank tops.
Like always, we are planning our Summer vegetable garden, although it may not do as well as in years past, since I am sure we will be put on water restriction this year. It has been such a mild winter, with hardly a snow storm here in the valley. I hope we'll have enough water to keep our lawn semi-green.
We making a fast approach on the arrival of our new little twins. A new grand-daughter and grand-son (#7 & #8). I've been neglectful on my baby knitting, but do finally have a few things finished and wrapped.
This is the "Small Things Romper" by Carina Spencer, along with a couple of little newborn hats. My overnight bag is packed, and in the car. Just waiting for the call. We'll be leaving soon, for an extended vacation, that was planned long before these little twins were on their way. I'm just hoping I don't miss their arrival. I'm hoping the packed bag will hurry them along.
I have selected the patterns, purchased the yarn and have started knitting little Blessing Clothes for the two of them. These will be the perfect little travel projects. I've knit the 2 legs for the little boy's romper. I knit them both at the same time, on US 2 needles. Although it has just been a week, they seem to have taken forever. I've now joined them together and I'm knitting away on the body. A long dress and bolero will follow for the little girl.
If time permits, I hope to knit them each a blanket as well. The "The Lotus Baby Blanket". I've knit several of these little blankets, and they knit up really fast.
We've just been informed, that grandchild #9 is also on it's way. Being a Grandma is so much fun!
I hope Spring is shaping up to be a glorious time in your life too. Happy Knitting!
