Getting ready for spring....if it ever gets here.

There's still at least 1 1/2 feet of snow in the backyard  but  I'm planning the garden already.  Since I seem to have good luck with potatoes, I'm trying several kinds this year.  I'm curious how the red, white and blue bag  turns out.  I still have bags of frozen potatoes in the freezer from last year.  To help things along, I bought a grow light.  It's perked up the geraniums I saved from the summer time.

Scrap Bag Infinity Scarf

Scrap Bag of Yarn
On the top floor of my local yarn shop they have clearance yarn.  I was shopping there the other day for a yarn gifty for a friend and found a bag of this yarn for $9.00.  Thought it might be fun to see what I could come up with using it.  The yarns varied in weight (Aran and DK). Four were novelty yarns.  Three were good enough for a base.   I cast on 200 stitches.  Size 8 needles.  Seriously $9 :)
