Mud, knitting and more basketball

Yesterday we had buckets of rain. I wouldn't know how cold it was as I didn't venture out of the house:)
Today is grey and gloomy. And very, very muddy.

Instead I worked on this sweater - hopefully it will be done by the weekend. 1 1/2 sleeves to go.
I think I did the sleeve cap wrong, but I'm not ripping back and fixing it - nope, not me. I've already ripped it back once, it's not happening again.

Jessie's basketball game on Saturday? Another win for the girls 24-4.This game was interesting - Todd went to high school with some of these parents, and Jessie went to preschool with 3 of the girls on the opposing team.
I tried to catch the expressions on some of the girls' faces - they get these really nasty looks on them they are concentrating so hard.

But I haven't taken the time to learn all the settings on my new camera - yet.

This week will be a busy week for us, with basketball practice two nights, Todd has fire practice, and we are going to pick up a usedbutnewtous portable basketball hoop and stand. Jessie's been after us to get one so she can practice at home and I found one through one of the Churches that I work with.

Your sweater looks nice. I love the color!
Kids' activity fills your schedule so easily but it sounds fun to watch them focus on their game. Enjoy!

We got the rain last night and all day today, had a flood watch out due to so much melting snow and rain on top of that. And, oh is it windy~ I pray for an early spring, with plenty of warm sunshine.

Love that sweater,looks warm and comfy too, perfect color, the extent of my knitting is a single chain stitch.

I know I've said it before, but I'll say it again...I am so jelous of your knitting skills. Your sweater looks great. Congrats to the girls on their win. I'm sure Jessie will love being able to practice at home. When I was in school and played sports I loved being able to get in some extra practice time at home. Hope you didn't get too much snow this morning, we only got a dusting here in Stark county, guess we were lucky. Hope you and yours have a great week!
