 Tis' daffodil time here in Chicagoland....
in the stores that is,
not outside yet.  
That won't happen for at least another month. 

Al shared some stories with me this week:
A mom came to the ER with her child and told Al she had a fever of 114.....
that her daughter vomited "The size of a queen size sheet." 
What lack of rest and quiet will do to a mother's brain eh? 
 On the knit front the shawl is so nice to knit...I love the colors.  
I finished another drop stitch cowl this week. 
Kudos to whoever made a drop stitch error part of a design feature. 
It works!!!!

Yes we SPRING forward tonight and in my mind I still gain 23 hours because I'm not working night shift!!!
Oh it was so fun to push that clock ahead at  0200 ...
but I don't miss that magic...
I'll be in my bed this year when the TIME changes 

and Happy Birthday Barbie...I still love you.

I like to fall back but spring forward is not too fun. I do not get enough sleep as it is.

Gardening has been on those shopping shows on TV. It is too early here. Snow on the ground doesn't make that possible.

Last year between March 14 and 22 we had those days in the 80's--hard to believe.

I'm worried our snowfall killed the daffodils that were just pushing up through the damp earth. Heaven knows the earth will be soft enough now...

No knitting, but so very much reading. Ebb and flow, and the knitting is ebbing, it seems.

We're getting a "spring" storm that looks a lot like winter, and it's heading your way. At least we can appreciate spring flowers inside.

The shawl yarn is really pretty.

I remember the first scarf I made with the YO dropped stitch. Slick! Yeah, makes you wonder if it was a mistake that turned into a design element!!

How I wish Daylight Saving Time was outlawed - who are we trying to fool?

The only blooms around here are in the stores. I bought some tulips two weeks ago just to remind myself that they still existed.

Very little knitting happening at my house.

I'm really a fan of Eastern Standard Time. I like snuggling into the darkening afternoon and cooking a nice supper.

Not so much when it's light out until almost 9. :-(

Hope you have a great weekend.

When I was a first grade teacher, I dreaded the time changes because something happens to the children's brains. It takes weeks to straighten them back out and get your old students back. Now that I am retired it doesn't really matter but I do feel more productive with the longer days. Now if only the sun would get high enough in the sky to put some sunshine on my deck!

Wasn't it just yesterday that we fell back? Yikes! Our daffodils are getting bigger by the day, and I'm hoping they don't do their thing while we're gone! Love the colors in your shawl!

God bless nurses!!! They hear and see it all!

Your shawl is such beautiful colors and the cowl is super.

Thanks for the time reminder. My head has been in a hole and I would have forgotten!

You are a knitting maniac right now. That poor Mother, her brain has been fried by staying up all night with a sick little one.

Daffodils! Spring must be coming soon!

Wow! Hospital work reminds you that you can't fix stupid.

We don't have any flowers coming up yet.

Lovely daffodil picture! The shawl still looks great, too.

What's the cowl pattern? Are you on Ravelry? If so, I'll look you up. (Or you can look me up - I'm bookwyrm.)
