The Amazing Adventures of Tom and Bel

No, not the Joe Orton play, but the generous birthday gift from my ILs:

I love this packaging. It's so simple, but really cute.

I'm trying to save this for a trip to the beach, appropriately enough.

Ahhh. The good stuff. I love Silky Wool.
(Tiny old dog tucked under table not included.)

I have no plan. In fact, I keep tucking everything back into the bag carefully, putting it away, and then opening it up again to look at it, which is its own reward. But it is definitely giving me the knitting urge, which in itself is a gift.

Poking My Head Up

Much like my little babies above, I'm poking my head up to say hi. After a somewhat eventful month -- a car accident (we're all fine), my pop going to the hospital repeatedly (so far he's fine, too), a weird sickness I can't quite shake, homeschooling the kids while they're on spring break -- I'm just trying to take things slow and remember to breathe.

Still missing my knitting (would you believe I haven't even opened my winter knit mags yet?) but unable to concentrate long enough to actually work on something. I need something to jump start my engine. Suggestions for something speedy that I can pick up and put down (other than socks)?
