The weather in this province is enough to drive you nuts this year.  First we had snow in April and now rain all weekend and cold.  This is the first time I can remember having to turn the furnace on in May.  The trailer opened last weekend, and this weekend I spent Saturday and Sunday inside with heater running,   I did get to watch the 3rd season of Game of Thrones.  That is one of the things I love about the trailer, I choose a series and on Friday and Saturday night after 8:00 pm I watch the series and knit or crochet or sew.   I finally finished 3 dress potholders for a lady on one of the quilting blogs who doesn’t crochet. 
 I do like crocheting these dresses but don’t really want any for me.  I am working on a knitted circular sweater for me just like the child size ones I made.  I’ve also decided that my goal for this Summer is to finish the hexagon quilt I’ve been working on.  I like it as I can carry the individual hexagons around with me, and work on putting them together on the weekend.  Of course I’ll work on some other projects that I have on the go.

A little knitting

Tuesday seems like a great day , the trailer opens this Friday and next weekend is a long weekend.  The weather is beautiful right now with temperatures in the 70’s, even the tulips are in bloom.  I’ve decided that the rest of this year will be finishing up projects I have going and not starting new ones, or if I start a new one then it will only be to use up my stash of yarn or material.   This past week I put the quilting aside, and did some knitting.  A friend was knitting this pattern which was free at .
I really loved the look of it, and have tons of knitting worsted yarn laying around, so I knitted up 2 child size sweaters. 

Here they are on 2 dolls I have, they would fit a  2 or 3 year old.  The first picture is not too bad, unfortunately the second one the colors are slightly off as I took them with a flash.
I would love to make the adult one in the colors shown on the elann site, but for now I’ve started and adult size one with some yarn I have on hand.  At lunch hours right now I am crocheting a dress potholder for a fellow quilt blogger that doesn’t crochet.
