Where did April go?

What have I been knitting? The sock for my mom- otherwise known as Dumbledore's socks. I finished one on Saturday at knitting group. I now have a vague idea on how to kichner. CO the second one Saturday the 14, started the heel flap only to discover halfway through that I forgot to slip a stitch every row unknitted the whole flap. Then switched over to the serger. Sergered a shirt for Bumpkins, all that is left is to hem the bottom, sleeves and neck. Should go easy- am debating on whether to knit her a matching skirt or just knit some leggings. I have some really wild yarn. Am thinking about making Hufflepuff house slippers, and a bobaton beret w/shawl.

DH was gone all weekend at a retreat, I did nothing. Just knitted and played w/Bumpkins. Took Bumpkins out swimming on Friday- she loved it. Then went to Mom's, got a bunch of new knitting needles. I am so excited can't wait to try them out.

Lots of hours at the pool and not much else. It is late time for bed.

I do believe that the robin's are back. We had a very fast breakup this year. I can plant sweet peas tomorrow if I find me seeds.

Re: The Beauxbatons shawl - You might want to try the Wool Peddler's Shawl from the book Folk Shawls. It's knit in garter stitch (I did stockinette on mine) with just a touch of lace on the bottom edges. It's a triangle shawl, knit in sport/light worsted weight yarn, so it knits up fast. True, it's a Victorian pattern instead of French, but it's still very pretty.
