My hooks and needles are a-clickin'

Remember this? It's been awhile since I've pulled it out of my basket to work on. I've taken advantage of the 4 days I've had off from work and have pulled it out of my basket and worked on it.

I've finished the body of the sweater and will be starting on the sleeves this afternoon (I had to take a break and wind the two remaining hanks of Shadow before I could begin). The sleeves won't take too long ~ they're 3/4 sleeves and the lace pattern is ultra-easy once you get the hang of it. I got to use that yarn swift that was given to me by a friend....such a nice gadget!!

I've also been working on a crochet sweater from the Spring/Summer 2007 issue of Family Circle Easy Crochet. If you have the magazine it's #8 Grace Jacket. It's done with Paton's Grace....I'm making mine entirely in cream. It's got more of that Vintage look I like in a solid color.

I've got a new dishcloth to post....just have to get the picture. I hate patterns without photos, don't you? ;)

Happy Easter

Meet Cupcake

M&M's are one of my favorite candies ~ second only to Jelly Belly jelly beans. You can create your own M&M character at Planet M&M's It was just a fun thing to do. =)

March of Dimes Walk

The hubby, kids, and I are all signed up to walk together in the March of Dimes walk on April 28, 2007. I am participating in WalkAmerica because I believe in the March of Dimes mission to save babies. I was blessed with 5 healthy babies, but others are not so lucky.

Please support my fundraising efforts by sponsoring me in WalkAmerica today. For my personal fundraising page click: March of Dimes

Please support my fundraising efforts by sponsoring me in WalkAmerica today.
Contributing to my walk online is fast, easy and secure. You can donate directly from my personal webpage with a credit/debit card or PayPal. If you prefer, I can also accept cash or check. Just click the appropriate box on my webpage.

The money we raise helps save premature and sick babies. Premature birth is the #1 cause of newborn death and the biggest threat to babies’ health today, and through WalkAmerica, the March of Dimes is funding important research to find out why premature birth happens and what can be done to prevent it.

I’ve joined with millions of compassionate people across the country who support WalkAmerica each year. Won’t you please help me in this worthy cause? Visit my webpage and sponsor me in the walk that saves babies!

With your support, there’s hope.
