Kind of a random, catch-all sort of post....

My sunroom is DONE!!! I've waited until the furniture arrived (or was relocated from other places in the house) to publish this picture. You can't tell from the photo, but the stone floor warms up to heat the room. It's tumbled soft but still retains it's organic, natural imperfections and feels wonderfully cozy to walk on. I love to sit out here in the mornings with my coffee and the paper. Now, if I just had woods and a babbling brook in the backyard, life would be perfect!

I finished my socks in the knick of time and my husband LOVED THEM!! The pointed toe fits the shape of his foot perfectedly and the Fortissima is soft and comfortable to wear.

I am making NO progress on the sweater project I'm working on with Shirani in the lovely Noro Kochoran, but I have been knitting socks LIKE CRAZY! and I am well on my way to meeting my goal of 12 pairs in 12 months. My next yarn review will be what I used for these: (and I promise when I do the review I will remember the exact name of the yarn I used...)My notes are over in my knitting bag by the sofa :)

I stopped by Cultured Purl Saturday and took some pictures of the Sock Club, hard at work on the St Patrick's Day sock. I love the color of the yarn!! Look for pictures later this week...

Well it's our spring break this week. Not exactly Spring outside but at least it's not FREEZING! I'm off to get the children organized for an outing to the movies.

Yours in knitting,

Its gorgeous - and what a great idea with the flooring. Forget the paper and just knit.
