Berry baby hat

Finished the hat this morning, made from Vanna's Choice Baby. Nice and soft, looks bluer in the picture than actual. It's a gift for our friend's new granddaughter. She was born about a month before our grandson, so it should be the right size this winter. Started another one tonight just because the first one was fun to make.

Knitted baby socks


These are the North Country Baby socks, and the yarn is my handspun, a corriedale that was combed, spun then dyed at a workshop at Joyce's house last fall. Started a hat with it, but it didn't look very nice; the repeats were short. The small socks were just the right project for the yarn! It didn't take much either, used up part of the skein on the far right. Might make some matching thumbless mittens with some of the leftovers.

Tulips open

Here's another photo of the multi colored tulips open. They made it through the latest wind storm! On the left is my Mother's Day gift, a pink rose bush and in front of the tulips is the bleeding heart I bought. Hope it isn't too sunny there, it gets early morning sun and a little in the afternoon. Also you can see a small forget me not that came in a pot of mums that was given to me last fall. So far the mum hasn't come back, hope it does, it lived for two years in a pot before we got it.
