March Madness

March seems to have crawled to a stand still. I’m assuming that it’s because my spring break is coming up in a couple of weeks, or it could be because we’re having what feels like a winter weather blast. But for whatever reason time is slowing down, it seems to be giving me more time for knitting. If all goes well, I could end up with 4 finished projects during the month of March. Starting the month off, I finished these convertible mittens for a friend.

My second finished project was my Merlot Lace, and right now I have two projects in the works. First off, I’m working on a beach bag for our spring break trip, and it’s coming together nicely.

I love the colors – I don’t know why, but they have a vintage like feel to me. My favorite project of the month I believe will be the socks I’m making from the Kalajoki sock pattern. I’m using some gorgeous Springtree Road sock yarn, and I feel like the pattern and yarn were just made for each other. I’m finished with one sock, and am itching to start the second.

After I finish up these, I’ve got a few pairs of “man socks” to knit, then I’ll be working on a couple of my own designs.
Back to the original title of my post – have any of you been watching the NCAA men’s basketball tournament? It’s really the only big sports event that I have to watch every year, and this year is no exception. Every year we make a family pool, and everyone fills out a bracket and it’s a big competition between us to see who can pick the correct winners. It’s so much fun – and watching all the games is even more fun. It’s always fun to pull for the underdog, and this year, there are 2 major underdogs in the final four, which will be played this coming weekend. I can’t decide who I want to win it all, but I do know I want one of the underdogs to win – either Butler or VCU. If you’re watching, who are you pulling for?
