It's been awhile since I posted an actual knitted finished object, but here you go! It's the Daisy sweater from Yarn Harlot, knit in a pretty peach wool (Joann's store brand, on clearance for $2-something a skein) with the cutest purple daisy buttons and purple and cream backstitched daisies (thanks, Mom, for the yarn).
Since I don't do multiple color knitting yet, this is the most decorative sweater I've ever knit and I love it! (Usually I just do solid color ones; in fact, I knit this sweater in light blue for my friend D'Arcy's little boy William). This one is in the middle size, which is supposed to be 6 month, but it looks a little large. Little Jovie (our neighbor's daughter) might not be wearing it until next fall.
It will be awhile before there are spring flowers in Chicago these days. We got a couple inches last night, so I decided to stay at my sister's in Aurora, rather than try to drive home to Chicago. I did my first snow shoveling of the season when I helped out with the driveway this morning. (Condo owners pay someone to shovel their walk!) It wasn't bad with three people shoveling. And it actually looks pretty with a fresh covering of white on all the trees.
I did get some beautiful flowers yesterday at work (photo of my new, although temporary, office for those who are interested): these gorgeous pink calla lilies were delivered from my sister-in-law Trish to congratulate me on my new job. She is so thoughtful with stuff like that. Thanks so much, Trish. Nothing like pink flowers to cheer you up at the end of February.
