Sunny skies make for sunny moods....finally we have some sunshine around here. I was beginning to think that we were living back in the times of Noah and his ark, we've had so much rain. I was getting a little worried about the creek out back hoping that it wouldn't rain enough for it to leave its banks. We lucked out but from watching the news I saw where many people in several states, including mine, are having trouble with flooding.
Today I'm going outside and enjoy some of this welcomed sunshine. I noticed the hedge outside my window has little tiny new green leaves, here and there...a welcomed site. Jimmy will be staying in and watching all of the basketball games who are on the Road To The Final Four. He doesn't just watch our team, but all of them no matter who they are. He looks forward to basketball season and especially to March and all the madness that goes on in March.
I made a hat to go with a muffler and although it's made of matching yarn, the stitches are different so it doesn't match too well. I'm still calling it a set though, hehehe. I went back and put tassels on all of the scarves/mufflers that I have left here at home and I must say that now they look finished. I followed some instructions (easy for beginners instructions) to make the hat and although I didn't quite understand everything about the instructions, the hat turned out and it fit Jimmy. He wouldn't model it and let me take his picture, because he knew that I would stick it up on my blog, hehehe. The scarf and hat are girly looking and I can't seem to make anything that looks manly, so I'll keep experimenting with different crochet stitches, because I'm not good at following those crochet instructions...I don't have the patience.
On some scarves I put lots of tassels but not on this pink one. I just put a few and I liked how delicate it looked. It really looks better around someones neck, but Jimmy wouldn't let me take his picture this time either. He did look good in pink though.
I'm on my way outside to soak up some of this sunshine and to do a little bird watching.
Someone asked me if the Cardinals stayed here year round and I think they do.
Also Kerri you asked me how Jybow got her name. Jimmy's father used to call all baby animals on their farm little jybows...don't ask me why. And to answer your other question: Jimmy is reading The Last Juror by John Grisham.
Have a nice day and come see me if you can.
