My projects that I have been working on lately for the most part is a pair of pretty simple socks and a scarf cowl . I found the Michelles Basic Sock pattern on Knitting Pattern Central and the scarf I found on the Knitpicks website.
I have also decided to add an observation everyday. So Saturday's observation is this: Never take away TV privledges from your kids without thinking it through clearly. It is amazing how that little bit of time they get to watch TV sometimes can be a break for a mom.
