*Easter goodies surrounded me yesterday like yarn in a yarn store. I caved for the cookies. Did you indulge in any sweets this weekend?
*I’m mailing my Motherbearproject bears off today. I’m ready to knit some fingerless. Do you have a favorite thumb gusset for fingerless?
*This little Easter toddler was enchanted with the hoola hoops that her bigger cousins could use. She preferred stepping in and out of the big colored circles. I could never hoola for long, could you?
*Our fun pals from Connecticut, who moved to Chicago are our orphaned holiday buddies. Nick, Dayna and Matt visited this weekend for Easter. I fed them, I hid Easter candy for them and I thoroughly enjoyed laughing with them. Do you have holiday guests of this nature?
*I don’t know why, but Miss Pie decided to let Nick hold her. For a loooooong time. Miracles happen . Have you been watching April the giraffe and her baby delivery?
*The malted milk ball dump cake was just okay. I made another dump cake with berries, yellow cake and lemon lime soda. It was fantastic. It may not look as nice, but I bring food to parties in disposable containers. No fuss for the host or me afterwards. Do you prefer to put your contributions in a nice dish or an easy one?
*I am knitting a garter shawl in Noro cotton. Don’t tell the shawl. Garter and I usually don’t do well. It is a small shawlette and it will be great for next to my neck chill chasing. I’ve finally found a Noro yarn that I like a lot. Have you tried their cotton blend yarn?
*The Ravelry Motherbear group threads were a huge help to me while knitting the bears. Lots of great tips. I think this is one of the best parts of Ravelry. So much information is out there for us for free. Do you study project pages comments on Ravelry before casting on? I do.
*Go ahead. Ask ME a question!!!
