Noro Silk Garden Anklets

I hope that everyone celebrating Easter had a great weekend.  The weather here was gorgeous (til today, it's raining) and had lots of goodies to eat.  I whipped up a pair of ankle socks lickety split so I'd have a pair for the Sock-A-Month Knitalong.  These were started March 29, finished the 31st, knit on 2.75mm needles.  The yarn is Noro Silk Garden Sock in colorwas S258.  I added a picot cuff for something different.  There should be enough left for another pair, but I don't think I'll do the picot cuff.  Noro is Noro, thick, thin, twisty... so doing the picot cuff was a pain at times.  Made these for a friend who only wears ankle socks and prefers mismatched socks.  Ravelry details here.

Offical hockey season ended this month.  We went away to a tournament during March break, but they didn't make out so well, they lost all three games.  They had a pizza party on the 26th.  They all got a medal and a certificate.  There were three medals given to our team from Hockey Nova Scotia, sponsored by Esso.  The Littlest One got one of these medals.  They were for Most Dedicated, Most Improved, and Most Sportsmanlike.  He got Most Dedicated as he never missed a practice or a game.  One other boy had the same record, but I think TLO got it cuz it was his first year in hockey, the other boy played last year.  So the coaches of our team had medals made that looked pretty much the same for the rest of the kids so no one had hurt feelings, so that was a good thing.

And of course there was an egg hunt here yesterday, lots of chocolate floating around. 

Maggie tried to steal some goodies, of course.

And that was about it for March.  My new nephew was born on St. Patty`s Day, so I guess I had better get my butt in gear and finished his blanket.  It is nearly done, just a couple more blocks and the border.

Happy knitting!
