I am beyond lucky. I won this Graffiti - 450 yds Superwash Merino - Fingering Weight from Amanda of NH Knitting Mama while helping her PMS. You must go to her shop to see all the knitterly goodness she creates . Thank you Amanda.

Double Lucky! Donna of Random Knits was having a devil of a time getting the colours she wanted to knit for this. Since she offered, I said I'd take the Brown Zephyr off her hands. Put all the names in a hat and I won. Please stop by her blog to see her Shetland Shawl which took Second Place but best seen here.

I have been making slow progress on my Chain Melody socks. I hope do be done by the end of the week since I only seem to be able to get about 5-10 rows done in the evenings before I can't keep my eyes open any longer.

Contests and places to Visit...Chan is having her 1st year Bloggiversary. I'm still trying to sort out who talked me into to doing what. Then head on over to Cinnamongirl blog to enter to win some malabrigo. While we are at it you have to go to Ponyknits and enter her contest. She too is offering Malabrigo. Hope my lucky Chan charm holds up as it was through her initial links that I won all the above.

Spring is coming slowly.

I started my garden in 1990 and have not taken care of it in the past three years. I can not tell you what these are but they are still coming up. Blue was one of the colors I was putting in my garden. This has lasted.

This is my one and only crocus
and my Aristocrat Flowering Pear week 1

a blog with out Kitty Pictures, not!

Pia is a box
I moved all the spinners and scratchers into the hallway to see what would happen.

One last thing. We did not win the 2008 Washington Post Peeps contest. You can check out the winner here and all the finalists

Beautiful flowers! Sorry you didn't win, but it's truly amazing the ideas of the winner & finalists!
It's so much fun to mess with cat's heads! Mr. Ace hates change...any sort of change in his world!

I hope I'm not leaving 20 comments... Blogger and I seem to have issues today. I love both yarns, and I'm very sorry you didn't win the Peeps contest!

In my opinion your peep box was better than most of the finalists.

I'm glad you got your yarn and you like it! :-)

Your cat pictures cracked me up. Especially the box one!

OOOh, your spring pictures are so pretty. It snowed again today here, so spring seems so far away.

Love the new yarns and can't wait to see what you do with them!

Anita said...

That new yarn is awesome!

Pia is so funny! She hardly even fits in that box! LOL

Those are beautiful flowers and your kitties are sooo cute :-) I think it is sweet that they are all playing together :-) The Grafitti Yarn is great too... I love those colors.
