Hope you all had a wonderful easter. Eggs dyed in the nuttnbunny super speed method. Colander, vinegar and food coloring. Drip drop swish rinse dry.
I can do 5 dz in about 15 minutes. Mama doesn't mess around. Plus I think they're pretty. Kind of planetary in an eggish sort of way.
And since Easter is all about rebirth and coming alive let's check out...
40th Birthday Golden Clogs! Thanks nuttnHubby!!
New kicks appropriate for embarking on a new decade. Comfort and style. Perfect to carry me forward.

Finished another beret. Knitting with the Koigu! "Love" is too mild a word.
Tragic yarn shortage for the Baby Bobbi Bear. Off to the LYS today for the remedy, for which they still have in the right dye-lot. I'm so lucky!

This, of course, highlights the fact that I haven't swatched the previous month. It still looks like this:
Nothing has changed. Now I realize that I don't like to knit lace yarn. My level of knitting obsession guarantees that f I was at all enthused I would have sat right down and finished it up.
But I won't.
YOTM delivers: I now know something I don't like. And there is value in that...
Sage words from a 40 yr old! :-)
