Ten on Tuesday | Good Things to Come.

...or what we're looking forward to. Seems like a fun way to forget that outside it's icy. I know it's snowy for many of you and colder; this week's topic is a welcome break from winter! Here are ten good things that will be coming my way...soon!

1. Seeing Charlie (and his momma); the ice storm closed schools today and Katie is taking extra care about getting out on the roads. I expect they'll be here later this morning.

Sara's toe to go!
2. Finishing Sara's socks. She asked for new socks and I hoped to get a pair out of one skein of Rowan Pure Wool Worsted (that I bought Friday at her LYS...along with new dpn's). The first sock weighed 45 g so I thought I'd be fine...but boo! I ran out of yarn just before the second toe. I'll finish off the toe with some fun color and get them into the mail soon (of course she'll have plenty of time to wear them before it gets too warm for bed socks!)

3. ...and a cardigan for me.

4. Sunday's Red Carpet show.

5. Cutting up magazines for this month's One Little Word prompt (also glue and a big piece of canvas).

6. Catching up with all of you - I haven't read blogs since before I left for Madison (yikes! the days just flew by!)

7. A long weekend with my parents next month (and also in April and a whole week in May!)

8. Knitting with the newest Shibui yarn, called Twig. It's a sport-weight linen/silk/wool blend blend and it comes out March 2. I'm still trying to decide on a first project, but thinking I might knit this.

9. Spring. duh, right?!

10. Seeing Sara again...when Madison is green and warm.

How about you? what good things are coming your way?

Click here to join the Ten on Tuesday fun. and Thank You, Carole, for hosting another fun meet-up!

You knit those socks in less than a week! :-) Glad to hear Charlie's on his way, guaranteed good day ahead!

I think Spring and/or Summer is on most of our lists this week. Be careful with that ice - that is some scary stuff, even worse than snow.

I'm getting my list together, but it includes knitting, sewing, warm weather and a 4 day weekend! Glad y'all had a great time with Sara

I bet you're looking forward to giving Charlie extra hugs today! I love Sara's socks, especially the red toe. How do you like the Karbonz dpns? I've considered them, but never actually used them. Maybe if I got some they'd make me knit like the wind also! (I don't really think so.) Twig sounds wonderful, so I'm looking forward to your thoughts when you knit with it. Great list!

Madison is GORGEOUS in the summertime -- the lakes, all the lakefront parks, the farmer market! Oh, man, I can't wait for summer...

Welcome back to a somewhat warmer clime. Glad you had a great visit with Sara and good to see you survived the c-o-l-d. Lovin' Sara's red toe sock; fun. And do have fun with Charlie. A big hug's going to warm you from head to toe.

The socks are gorgeous. And I love the idea of finishing it off with a different color. Will make them such a special pair of socks!

Charlie time! You must have missed him like the dickens. Warm bed socks would be just the thing with the cold as low as it is. I talked with someone in San Antonio today and it is colder there than it is in SLC. Craziest winter ever.

The Perkins Cove Pullover is lovely! I wish I had the patience for socks, but I have "Second Sock Syndrome".

That jumper looks lovely ... and no doubt it will materialise into being as fast as those socks did! Hoping you had a lovely time with Charlie!

Those are just lovely socks, Mary. Too bad about the yarn (I hate it when that happens. . . ), but they will be so charming with the cute toe! Stay warm (it's all relative).
