What kind of soul are you .....

You Are a Newborn Soul

You are tolerant, accepting, and willing to give anyone a chance.
On the flip side, you're easy to read and easily influenced by others.
You have a fresh perspective on life, and you can be very creative.
Noconformist and nontraditional, you've never met anyone who's like you.

Inventive and artistic, you like to be a trendsetter.
You have an upbeat spirit and you like almost everything.
You make friends easily and often have long standing friendships.
Implusive and trusting, you fall in love a little too easily.

Souls you are most compatible with: Bright Star Soul and Dreaming Soul

One down ....

... and about a dozen to go. I finally finished this pattern I started in November. The pattern is from Needlecraft University. It was fairly easy and it's the first time I tried to crochet socks. The pattern called for Patons Grace cotton sport weight yarn. I had never used it before and it's always nice to get a chance to use a new yarn. It is a very soft cotton and was so nice to work with. Since the pattern called for two skeins of yarn and I used about two and a half, I think my socks came out a little larger than they should have. I thought my gauge was right but I guess I thought wrong. Also, as much as I like the yarn, I think it may be a little thick for a sock ... but then, I'm not fond of thick socks. Anyway, this is number one of my many WIP's to be finished. I'm on a roll!

March comes in like a lion ....

Well, not really. Actually here the change of seasons is not particularly dramatic. Cooler temperatures. A little rain. Looks clear and sunny today.

I just finished a cover for my little used bread machine. I did not have any kind of pattern; I just started crocheting. It's nothing fancy but it should serve my purpose. I did the same thing for the Black & Decker jar opener I have. It's a lot easier to throw the cover in the washer than try to keep the appliance clean.

I am making a concerted effort to complete the many projects I have in progress before starting something new. I hope to be more successful at it than I have been in the past.
