I’ve been working on Belinda’s sweater some more.  I’ve got the sleeves separated out and am working on the body.  I definitely like the slightly thicker yarn.

I got some new ‘dish cloth’ yarn from Knit Picks and couldn’t resist whipping up a couple new face cloths.  I really love the Knit Picks Dishie, especially their multi-coloured yarns.  It knits up so much nicer than the Bernat cotton I can buy locally.

Almost forgot it was Monday.  I’m going to have to make some changes to my menu plan this week since the butcher didn’t make enough hams so we had roast beef for Easter supper.

Really needs to stop raining.  There was lots of flooding in Pembroke and the river here is starting to get high too.  Colin says it’s about where it used to be in the ‘good old days’.  Considering he wants to start cropping it really needs to stop soon.

Man, I am having such a hard time remembering to Craft On on Tuesdays.  I’m going to have to put a reminder on my phone.  Oh well, at least this week I have something to share.

Making good progress on Belinda’s new sweater.  The pattern is working out much better with the thicker yarn.  The yarn isn’t really this orange, it’s got more of a rust tone (it’s called paprika).

Busy week.  My friend Maureen is coming on Wednesday for Ella’s photo shoot.  I need to get the house tidied up because she might want some inside shoots too.  I also need to get our Lenten garden set up, I’m so far behind this year.  I also need to snag the truck one of these days to run out to the butcher shop for a smoked ham.  Good news, my elbow is feeling so much better.  Still a bit sore, but I can knit again and I’m not afraid to pick up anything (within reason).  Sure wish I knew what I did -so I can not do it again!

Stuff?

I keep forgetting that my new ‘Yarn Along’ day is Tuesdays.  Not that I have anything to share for Crafting On this week.  Usually a weekend in Toronto provides lots of knitting, but somehow I hurt my arm before we left for the city.  I messed up the tendons in my right arm (knitting arm).  Luckily it’s feeling much better today.  I still have to be careful stretching, but at least I can pick up most things without fear of dropping them/stabbing pain.

So instead, here’s some pictures to share.

So little.

Ah, back in the bonnet-wearing days.

Ella’s first hair cut and her ‘cheese’ face.

Home again from Toronto.  Boy, I sure wish I had a magic want that could just get us back home.  It always seems such a long drive coming home (4 hours plus stops).  We had a good time and I’ve got pictures to share, but they are on my camera still.

Thursday:

Busy last week getting everything back to normal after being in Toronto/Scarborough.  Now we have to go back again this weekend.  We need to hit Auntie B’s office to deliver Ella’s Girl Guide cookies.  Wasn’t planning on a trip down so quickly.  Oh well, maybe we’ll get a chance to hit up some of the fabric stores downtown to search for linen for my new medieval garb.

Today is the last day of skating, so our weeks will be a lot less busy.  Swimming started last week.  Ella loves swimming, she’s in swim kids 5.  Not bad for just starting lessons last year.

grilled cheese

Tuesday:
