Spring In Minnesota

Well, according to the calendar it's supposed to be Spring.  On Monday I was pleasantly surprised to see these flowers growing in my front yard.  (I didn't plant them there so some animal must have moved the bulbs.)

Now today it's snowing and it's supposed to continue most of the day.  Yesterday it was snowing so hard just South of the Twin Cities that some of the schools closed early ~ Crazy!  Here's what my front flower bed with my tulips looks like this morning.  The picture is a little dark, but those spikey things sticking up are tulips trying to grow.

I think it's a good day to stay inside and knit.  Have a great day everyone!

Kaitlyn's Tunic Sweater Progress

The tunic sweater I'm knitting for my daughter Kaitlyn is coming along nicely.  I thought people might enjoy seeing some progress pictures.   

I like the fact that the sweater is done all in one piece without having to sew any seams.  I just have to finish the sleeves, do the bottom ruffle and weave in the yarn ends.  I'm hoping she'll be able to wear it for Easter, which is coming up in just a little over a week, so I guess I better get going on this. :)
