I hate errors. But, sadly, they are a fact of life. Especially in patterns. I was doing my Snow Petal socks again and found another error. I made a mistake on row one of the set up chart. So for all of you that already downloaded it here is the correct setup chart. There is only a change on row 1.

If you have not already downloaded it, I have made corrections to the pattern and it is now up on Ravelry.

Two things

Sorry, it has been so long since I posted. Spring has come early here and I have been trying to get our yard in order. I have a problem area in the back yarn that needs quite a lot of TLC.
Here is the front.

And here is the back.

You can see I have a lot of work ahead of me. Even after four days of work the yard still has another week or so of work ahead. I am trying to plant more perennials so I do not have to spend so much time every year.

The two pairs of socks I was working on for March are now complete.

I have half of two different sock patterns completed.

Atlantis, by Janel Laidman from The Enchanted Sole.

And one from the Solid Socks group Mystery on Ravelry. It is now called Tea and Scandal socks by Stephanie or (VeryBusyMonkey)

Easter time

We had a wonderful Easter with our family. Saturday was fun with my in-law's. Unfortunately I forgot my camera and did not get any pictures. It was also raining, so not the best time for pictures.

Sunday, on the other hand, was beautiful if a bit chilly. We had our egg hunt outside and the kids loved it.

Here is my daughter hiding eggs.

And here are my sons and nephew hunting them down.

It is nice to have two little ones who still really enjoy this kind of thing. They have so much fun with the hunt and truly enjoy the candy afterward.

And it couldn't be Easter without flowers. We can always count on my mother to have plenty of them. Here are some of the beauty of the season.
