Yes, I am! I was just outside planting Freesia’s and loving this beautiful weather! It’s been a busy few days around here! I went to the Knitting Group that meets in Berea on Mondays at 1:00 in the afternoon, then went to Richmond to meet with that group in the evening. A couple of the gals in the Richmond group have invited me to go to Stitches South with them, and I am so, so tempted. But, it would be pretty expensive I think. So, still debating on that.
Went to a Quilters Group meeting yesterday afternoon, and OMG! These ladies are so, so talented. I am so tempted there too. BUT! I CAN NOT START A NEW HOBBY!! See? If I shout, maybe it won’t pull me in!
A little progress has been made on Granite:
Are you guys sick of seeing this back or what? But look the armholes are progressing:
Just have to say that starting the rows with that particular pattern is a bitch, but I think I am doing ok on it. I am a little worried about yardage, the pattern called for 1,650 yards, and I purchased 2,000 yards. . . that is ball #3 you see up there, and OMG what if I run out??? It’s one of Lisa Souza’s BFL Aran in Ice, Ice Baby! Maybe I should send her a skein to see if she can match it some how . . . I dunno, maybe I am worrying for nothing too.
Not much else going on, finished the last book out by Kim Harrison, Black Magic Sanction. I love Rachel Morgan, and all the Hollows Gang! I’ve been listening to them via audiobook, all these years, and now I have caught up and have to wait. Wah! This last one had me in tears for a while, but it was a really good read.
Well, off to see what else I can get into, I’m working on a surprise for my Mom’s birthday. And, it’s not even knitting or spinning related! Any guesses? Happy Easter and or Passover to all –
