WOYWW 258 - Snow in MAY in New Mexico?

Holy moly.  It's Wednesday (actually Tuesday, but hey) and it's snowing!

It's time again to visit some creative people all over the world.  Thanks to our leader, Julia, who started this all almost five years ago!  Go HERE and start visiting!
So, what's on my desk?  My knitting, egg carton (that I know I'll use somehow), power cords that don't go to that electric drill (still looking) and my camera case.
Isn't this pretty!
I've been knitting.  This time I'm knitting a lap blanket for my friend's daughter.  Since I've knitted the one sister two baby blankets I thought it would be nice to knit a lap blanket for the other daughter.  Does that make sense?  These colors are perfect for her.  My workspace this week has been my trusty rocker/recliner.  I love my chair.  Needless to say this is knitting weather!  

As always, I will visit those that end in the same number as me and those that visit me (please leave your number).  It will probably be the weekend before I'm able to do most of my visiting.

I hope you are having a wonderful week.

Peace,
Kay

Lovely colors in your knitting, Kay! I tried knitting a long time ago but never got the hang of it. I suppose it is because it's never knitting weather in the Phillippines!

I saw the weather report this morning and saw all the snow in CO. Didn't realize it went all the way south into NM, too.

I agree that these are some gorgeous colors you chose for that lap blanket. This will be a real beauty when you are finished.

Happy WOYWW in advance. No number yet because Julia's still asleep.

I never realised you would get snow in New Mexico! Well, what a surprise for me.
Lovely knitting and a lovely kind thought too.
Am looking forward to getting the FS tag rom you, would be good if some others did it too but not hinting honest. LOL
Hugs & thanks for visiting me earlier., Neet xx

Annie said...

I love that wool you're knitting with Kay. Just perfect for a little blanket. It's getting too warm for knitting here now really but I'm still knitting....hoping for news on the house soon so maybe the stress will settle down soon :-)
Hugs,

Hi
It's been a while I know, since I last managed to link up but I'm back now and just popping my head round the door to say hello!

Thanks for sharing your creative space and I hope you have a good week too.

The simple garter stitch is perfect for showing off the gorgeous colours in that yarn! Knitting on a circular needle must help with the weight of the blanket as it grows.
Hope you find the correct cables :-)
Hugs, LLJ 22 xx

Hi Kay, love the knitting, it will probably keep your knees warm whilst doing it especially as you have SNOW - crazy weather indeed. The types of shoes I wear are very limited. If I find one that is OKish I tend to buy a few the same as I don't have any choice really. I have 4 pairs of Cotton Traders suede slip-ons. I even have to wear-in the wide fitting! http://www.cottontraders.com/invt/aq11360 Just practiced my harp having had a few days break from it, it is coming along slowly, went to a hard concert last week which has inspired me more. Thanks for your early pre number visit. BJ#39

Hi Kay, I was hooked when you said that you had SNOW . . . my heart goes out to you. Doesn't New Mexico know that it's Spring?

Di said...

Crumbs - SNOW?! I was thinking back over our time in NM just yesterday and what fun we three had, sightseeing, eating, shopping, chatting :) Happy days my dear friend!

Love and hugs

catherine said...

Hello kay and thanks for visiting my WOYWDW blog today. looks like you are busy and enjoying your knitting. You were asking about the rock salt- I find good results if you leave it for about an hour but then I have a lot of water so it needs time to soak up. I guess it's just experimenting and knowing when you have reached the effect you like.

That yarn colour is gorgeous - so versatile. Your drill and non-matching cables made me smile - I'm like that all the time! Have fun this week, Chris # 23

Paper rainbow said...

The colours you have used on your lap blanket are my very favourites. I love the idea of a lap blanket, it sounds so snuggly :) Snow in mexico? Scotland yes, but Mexico...my goodness!

glitterandglue said...

Hello Kay. Thanks for visiting already - yes, the dress definitely needs to rest between fittings - so do I!!! Out of comfort zone with this one - but getting there...
Lovely knitting today, Kay - and I don't blame you, snuggled up in your rocking chair, hopefully by a warm fire or at least a radiator!!
Have a special week.

Love the blanket colors! Don't you hate when you can't find the right power cord for things. Stay warm. Snuggle under that nice blanket. :) Thanks for the earlier visit! Hugs and Happy WOYWW! Nan G #15

Darnell J Knauss said...

Seriously, Kay, snow? I did hear about Denver but not New Mexico. Ridiculous weather. We could sure use some crazy snow or rain in California, especially San Diego right now. It's really scary.

Yes, yes, that knitting is so, so pretty!! Oh, she will love it!! Have a great week! Thanks for stopping by to see me and FS! I'll keep a close watch on her leg! Hugs, Darnell #24

Angela Radford said...

I'm loving the colours of the yarn you are using, makes me want to start knitting again. Happy crafting, Angela 50

Bridget Larsen said...

Brrr we're coming into winter too but this new place has hardly any winter which varies between 50-69F. the other city we left was 21-46F
Thanks for your visit and friendly words, makes me feel so welcome.

Snowing?! We are amazingly having some good weather but give it five minutes and we might change it again... ;-) #65

sandra de said...

Gorgeous colours and of course your decision to knit a lap blanket makes perfect sense. Have a lovely week.

Stacy Sheldon said...

Yes, that is so pretty. But snow is no fun! Stay warm.

April Story said...

I have a chair and a half that I love to sit in - so I totally understand your love of your chair. :-) April #75

Amy E said...

Wow...snow in May? That's crazy! I remember YEARS AGO when I lived in Albuquerque, we got almost a foot of snow on April 1st. We all thought that was a great April Fool's joke that Mother Nature played on us!

Your knitting is gorgeous! I wish I could knit!

Your lap blanket is going to be so beautiful! I love the colors and it makes perfect sense why you are making it for the other sister. The weather has been crazy here in Texas for us too. So unusual for May, at least no snow! LOL So I'm not complaining about the cooler temps as it will be super hot soon enough I think! Thanks for visiting my WOYWW post! ~Sandy in Texas #86

Sandee Setliff said...

We are having a cool days too, but at least not cold enough for snow!!! Man, that's a bummer, glad you have your knitting to keep you warm! waving hi from the hills of North Carolina ♥

Shaz Brooks said...

Hi Kay, that is a beautiful blanket, lovely colours. I'm another who would never have thought you got snow in New Mexico- is it really unusual for you? Have a great week, Hugs, Shaz #29 xx

Irene Rafael said...

Snow!!! I live in So. California and we just finished a crazy heat wave. Crazy weather. Love your lap blanket. Thank your for visiting and commenting on my first WOYWW post. What a lovely group.

MaggieC said...

Cannot believe you actually have snow while we are sweltering over here. Thank you for your visit this week, and, yes, the photo at the top is from my garden this year. Hope you have a good week. xx Maggie #20

Princess Judy Palmer said...

It's SNOWING?! in New Mexico??! >looks out window< No it ain't. Oh! This was last week. Holy cow, the weather is psychotic. That lap blanket is pretty colors and looks so soft. Well, hello from south of y'all (I'm in Alamogordo).
