Happy March!

So Happy 2nd day of March! I can't believe the first quarter of the year is quickly coming to an end!!

And guess what we got last night on the 1st day of this month ;op

Finally some real snow!! Nothing record breaking, but enough to shut down our city again! LOL Workfree day!! Woot! Woot!

I heard the kids late last night playing in it! Haha!
Look a snowman by them!

Speaking of March it is also National Crochet Month!! One of the Purls (Donna) sat down with me and another Purl (Pam) in our knit/crochet group to show us how to do
Granny Squares!! Bet you can tell which one is mine huh?? LOL (hint: the messy one) You really can't call yourself a true crocheter until you've done one of these! Hahaha!

And it is also Malabrigo March too!!! Yay!!!

I promised myself I would pull out my BTS vest from its plastic chamber and work on it this monthAfterall it is out of the beautiful Rhodesian malabrigo (why she is called Ms. Rho). She has been in hibernation for about a year now....le sigh

So the Malabrigo Junkie KALs may actually get me to work on a longtime WIP instead of starting something new...pooh

I did finish my pimlico shrug (in Malabrigo too!) and today would have been a perfect day to get pics of it in the snow! But my one minor problem is not having an available snapper...again. Will be back with that F.O. post eventually, until then

Let this be a Magnificent March!!!

    At least you tried. It looks good, I have practiced once and quit. I so need to pick it back up.

    Lucky you a day home. It snowed here too and I can't wait to get home and play with it.

    Haha at pull out of plastic chamber.

    Enjoy your day off! Hope you get lots of knitting done. Love the snowy pictures. We don't get snow here and my soon-to-be 4 yr old keeps asking me about it. I need to learn how to crochet.

    I'm glad to hear you tried crocheting. It's easy once you learn tension. You'll have tons of fun with it. I'm going to my knit/crochet group tonight and I'll let them know its national crochet month. Maybe we can teach some of the knitters to do granny squares too! LOL!

    Malabrigo month too. Boy everyone has a month. Funny how there is only twelve months in the year. LOL!

    You have a good one! Kudos on the home day due to the snow.

    Lucky you! We didn't get any snow!! LOL

    OK, my BTS vest isn't made with Malabrigo, but I would like to get it off the needles soon too. I worked on it a few weeks ago and made a few increases, but I better get going on it before I forget what I was doing again! :P

    I love it! All my southern friends are posting their snow pictures, while I wallow happily in 71 degree weather for a few late-winter days in Denver.

    I think some days the weather just gets switched in the pipeline.

    The snow is awesome and I'm jealous...I want a day off because of weather! Congrats on your granny square, I love to crochet.

    Hooray for snow! Especially when you get a day off from work for it! :)
    Pam said...
    Hey Stacey...I started on my granny square afghan but I think I've made some mistakes already. I'll have to bring it in on Sat.

    You would think i was tired of snow but your pictures look nice-that nice dusting of snow.
    Your square doesnt look so bad and congrats on taking the step and trying it out!
    You have a magnificent March as well!!!

    Hah! Check out my blog - we had snow too! Total freak storm. I have that shade of Malabrigo, too and my son-in-law is thinking it would make a great ribbed hat for him :) Found some amazing Malabrigo at a 1/2 price sale 2 weeks ago -- it's the merino/silk blend in the richest red and an amazing teal. It's totally delicious!

    I was finally able to get out of your subzero, snow covered, ice strewn state! I was stranded at PTI airport for 2 days! Fortunately, you guys had sense enough to open a decent Marriott airport hotel that makes delicious Cosmopolitans.

    Aside from not getting to any yarn stores, I didn't get a chance to see you again. We'll try it again in May!

    I thought of you when I saw that Atlanta got four inches! I'll have you know that this snow event happened because I was on the east coast this weekend. Whenever I head home during winter, there's a Nor'easter. Go figure!

    Happy March!!! Look at that gorgeous snow!!
    Wanda said...
    Look at you with a snow day, very nice. I'm jealous! Of course it takes more than that for us to get a snow day in Denver, but still. . .I'm glad you picked up your BTS vest again. Now to make it work!
