Treats

As promised, here is a picture of some of my Easter goodies to drool over:


The blue-based yarns are both Manos del Uruagay from my MIL, and the brown is Andes from my hubby. All of them look, feel, and smell great. (Cuz I am odd like that.) The book is also from my hubby; it is probably a little advanced for my knitting skills at the moment, but I love that he thinks I can use it! (It is great having a supportive husband who thinks you are the bomb where yarn is concerned... even if you are not!)

And here is what I have been crocheting lately:


This is the Spider Shrug. The pattern is uber easy to follow and I am really enjoying it so far. I bought this like a month ago, and then had yarn issues (without going into it, let's just say I do NOT like discountyarns.com!), and wasn't able to start it until last week. Hopefully, I will be able to finish soon.

That's about all for me, at the moment. Laundry, dinner, and crocheting are all calling for attention tonight...

Great gifts!

Last night I went to the movies, "The Upside of Anger", and I remembered you because I've read Ann Arbor, Michigan! ;)

Lovely gifts! I've eyed that book before, it has some pretty cool patterns in it. The spider shrug is looking good! Love that color you chose.
