Hippity Hoppity, Easter Came and Went


Well, we're back in town, the big girls are in school again, Mary's on break, and Easter came and went. We had Easter at my sister's, where I got to see my little nephew Charlie in one of the versions of the five-hour baby sweater (although it took me more than five hours - ymmv). He is such a cutie patootie.



I've put aside the Tuscany shawl for a while because I realized I was doing a stupid thing. I've been slipping the first stitch on each row, but only on the right side. So I've got slip stitches on the knit side and regular stitches on the purl side. What a dunce...I'm seriously consider ripping the whole thing out but before I do anything drastic I'm working on the socks from Lace Style. Sometimes the knitting mojo just takes a vacation.



Snoop spent Easter at home, even though Anna made him a bunny suit to go with his ears.
