This picture is of the Elizabeth Zimmerman Baby Surprise Jacket. I knit it up in an acrylic yarn I had, and am using the remainder of the yard to crochet a blanket.

Of course, the choir did sing at the end, but we also had some very interesting entertainment. This included a wonder duet, a terrific solo by one of our bass members, a stand up comedy routine, a piano act and a young man playing some great riffs on his guitar. My family opted for a "duet", a ventriloquism act. Here is the video, it is very poor quality as it was taken with my daughter's digital camera and the sound was really bad.

The girls look cute:
The "Guys" (the older guys, that is..) see for yourself. (They are the Dads of the "Girls")

I have been working on a pair of socks. I call these my "Ireland" socks. They are a beautiful hand dyed kelly green, perfect for Ireland. They should be complete before our choir trip.
I am knitting these from the toe up, using the "Magic Loop" method. I am only doing one sock at a time, as two on at a time is a bit beyond my scope for now.
I am not sure what the leg portion will look like, would like to incorporate a pattern or a cable just to try it.
I finally finished my coral colored socks, they turned out great. Very plain, but ok. One sock was leg down, the other toe up. Unless you are a knitter, you wouldn't know the difference. Here is a picture of the work in progress.
We are getting a nice soft rain today, so that should get my seeds started. I planted tomato seedlings that I am keeping in a few sunny windows. They won't be ready for planting until mid May. I haven't seen any sprouts yet, so it could be a few weeks. Can't wait for fresh veggies.
Odie has grown so much in two months. He is now 4 months old and has easily tripled in size. He is almost as long as Pepper and just as wide. He should keep growing, getting taller.
Odie knows to sit, stay, and "crate". He still needs to learn how to walk on a leash. I have worked with him a bit, but it still needs more work. The next vet. appt. is next week. Can't wait to see how much he weighs.
The photo (sideways as it is) is from the snow we had in early March.

Odie's coat is growing longer. He will need a haircut soon. One lady I took Pepper to, said that she has her "babies" on the grooming table at 4 weeks. She raises cocker spaniels. So, it is not too early to get Odie to a groomer. He is getting a bath tomorrow. He has figured out how to get under our back porch, he comes out with a cloud of dirt! So, he is due!
