 My February is flying by!!  I am not so sure I am ready for the coziness of winter to be over so soon.  Is that bad?  This years winter season has been very good to me, yay!  A few weekends ago found me catching up on reading blogs, and I stumbled across this pattern link from the Mason Dixon blog from Ravelry and I just HAD to right that minute cast on for the Gap tastic cowl.  It so satisfied my need to knit that afternoon.  I still need to figure out a way to read blogs and knit though, just think of how much more I could get done.
 Above I am finishing up a baby surprise sweater from EZ for the second gbaby that will be here soon (9 weeks left, really?).  Not really liking the color now, but I am sure I will make more for those gbabies of mine.
Yesterday was spent at the Nelson-Atkins Musuem with the daughters.  I love how this picture came out with the second daughter.  The first time I visited here I did not know we could use our cameras, so this time I was prepared to take pictures (no flash allowed). 
Now I am off to work on some craftiness around here, it is another goverment holiday today, Happy Presidents Day to you all.

Rag rug

Yesterday was the biggest snow storm in 50 years around these parts.  I got the day off and I also have today off due to the inclement weather.  I spent the day shoveling the driving way (3 times!!) and it was no use, the snow still kept coming.  I think we have something like a foot around here.
I also gave the grandpuppy a bath and he smells so much better now.
In between all of that yesterday I worked on the crochet rag rug for the gbabies room in our house.  I am love love loving this rug.  I am thinking about doing a little tutorial for same if I can get off my lazy butt around here.  I am using old sheets that I have collected and cutting them into strips then rolling that long strip into a yarn ball.  I am on sheet six now.  
I am still in my pj's today and having a lovely time with my day off from work.  How about you, what is going in your world today?
