I'm Still Alive and Knitting

Spring is here, I love this time of the year. Everything is coming alive, flowers are in bloom, trees are turning green and new life begins. Today I got to see a new calf in the field it make me feel so good to be alive. I always know that it is spring when the raspberry canes begin to turn green. So with the new life beginning I decided that I needed an update in my life. I got new glasses, 2 pair and I got my hair cut. I cut 10" off now that's a lot of hair and I feel a little bald now its not that short it can go shorter which I'm sure it will go. Here is the front and the back please forgive the crappy pictures but I
thought I would give you an idea what it looks like. I just have to figure out what do with it. I forgot that the back has a ton of waves so it looks like it is curly and I'm not adding them in.  I figure if I don't like it I can cut it really short.  The pair of glasses that are pictured are a black frame. I like them Tony and Micheal like the other pair. The picture of that pair just didn't turn out.
Sock Clubs
I got a couple of packages from Woolgirl. The sock club this year is all about The Dreamer in all of us. So she started out the year with some gorgeous yarn from Dream in Color called "Dreamer".  The patterns were by Christina Bain called "Sleep Walker" socks and a beret pattern by Jane Robbins called "Day Dreamer.  a "Knit 'N Walk Bag with a small accessories bag by Knit Purl Sew What?. The cutest Little Gems scissors, 2 stitch makers from Twice Sheared Sheep, a woolgirl sock club pen, a mini calendar to post on the fridge, a Woolgirl button key chain, a notepad and more this was a stocked kit.
The next kit the arrived on the door step was the first in the Alice in Wonderland series. This kit was called Queen Alice, this is a great kit and the goodies OMG Jen out did herself on this kit. I don't know where she finds the items she adds to all her kits but I'm so glad she does. If I could I would buy each and everyone but I don't. In this kit we got: yarn from Dashing Dachs in a heavenly Alice colorway, the sock pattern called "QUEEN ALICE" by IrishgirlieKnits, a sock bag by Slipped Stitch Studios, A "Drink Me" pattern tamer, a Queen Alice pen, a set of note cards, mini calendar, a collector's Alice in Wonderland journal, a wee ones stitch marker. LIKE I said WOW.
I had to show the stitch marker front and back there was so much detail in it.

Knitting:  I have been doing some knitting just haven't gotten anything really done. I knit another shawl. I like how this one turned out. I've started another one also they are fun to do. this one is called "Waves of Leaves" I used Socks that Rock Grawk colorway. Here is a picture that shows the colors in the yarn.
 The next shawl is "Raindrops"  I have ripped it out so many time its not funny but the drops are turning out right and I'm using a life line so I don't have to completely rip it out.
I have been knitting on socks at the same time so I'm keeping busy .   Well I think that this is enough for now. So you know what to do, keep those sticks aclickn'.
Happily knitting socks, Bye.
