The first of the violas.
Frogs, lots of them but so far, no spawn. I found young newts at the weekend too while I was moving some of the stones about. They were obviously still hibernating so I covered them back up. Finally the winter clematis - about the only thing in the garden that's a bit late flowering this year. Mind you, that could just down to it being in the shadiest part of the garden. Ah spring is definately springing, before we know it it'll be Easter.

It's been gloriously sunny all weekend and I'm still on a high for working or should I say, skivvying in the garden. Then tonight when I picked up my emails, I had one to say my advert has been approved. I am officially a ravelry advertiser and of course, when I logged on, I saw my first advert. Ah, maybe I'm just easily pleased but hey, my little shop is being advertised on Ravelry. Yay!

Hedera socks from Knitty. Knitted on my 2.5mm BB dpn's before I snapped one and using some of the Merino superwash from my shop. It's a lovely yarn to knit with and I'm really pleased with the way it's knitted up. I only got to play with it as it was a slight miss-dye but I might have to sneak another skein out.
Another lovely Cookie A pattern and a very easy knit once you discover the errata for the numbers on the heel. I'm still not sure I like the huge instep but I've been assured by Paige who altered it for one of her pairs that it's necessary.

Your Word is "Fearless"
You see life as your one chance to experience everything, and you just go for it!
You believe the biggest risk is being afraid and missing out on something amazing.
Sometimes your fearlessness means you're daring. You enjoy risky activities.
And sometimes your fearlessness means you're courageous. You're brave enough to do the right thing, even when it's scary.

Size: ladies UK 4/5
This is my second pair of these and at the mo, I'm trying to work out whether I can rejig the pattern to make them large enough for me or whether to just bite the bullet and buy the adult version. I'm sure I'll make another pair before long as the MM tried these on as soon as they were dry.
