Spring...

I am loving the Spring. It's been warm and breezy and GORGEOUS. My street looks amazing now that the dogwood are blooming. Sadly the daff's and tulips are just about done, so I have so major gardening to do this weekend...(hint to mother of rotini, help is much appreciated!)



And my favorite rite of spring, Maryland Sheep and Wool is NEXT WEEKEND. I can't believe it. I am even more excited because my MOM is coming with us this year!!! Speaking of mom, she's on Ravelry now, barbbach is her user name...so yes, you too can be friends with mom of knittyd!



I just returned from the Veterinary Social Work Conference in Knoxville, TN. First off, Knoxville is a lovely little town...and a college town at that. The University of Tennessee was having its orange and white (scrimmage) game on Saturday and the entire town was bleeding orange and white. The coolest thing I found out though, is the Univ of Tennessee, aside from being the alma mater of Peyton Manning, has a mascot named Smokey. Smokey is a blue ticked hound that bares a STRIKING resemblance to one Mr Finnegan Bach.













Cool, huh?

Anyway, after the conference, I'm now moderating the veterinary social work listserv. I'm proud to say after just 3 days we have over 30 members! It is great to have this discourse!

I am on chart 5 of 6 in Lotus Blossom!!!! It is knitting up so quickly and is just gorgeous! I see it being done in the next week or so...maybe by sheep and wool? Then on to Seraphim!

Okay, must do some work!

Have fun at MD Sheep & Wool! I so desperately wanted to go this year, and it almost looked like it was going to happen. Better luck for me next year...

My wonderful husband - Mr. Tactile - is taking me to MD Sheep and Wool. I'm excited. Then we're going to DC to visit our daughter - I love DC. It will be a great weekend. I'll try to behave at MD S&W. Just what I need, more stash!

There's a veterinary social work listserv? Are veterinarians allowed to lurk on it?
