Events
Marathon Spring Cleaning  – runs from  March 1, 2015 to April 20, 2015

 

  • Goal: Use as much leftover/ scrap yarn as you can during this time.  Only scrap/ partial skein yardage counts.
  • Along with your Cast-On post must be a photo of the leftover/scrap yarns you will be using.  You will keep one continual post through the KAL – updating with each new project and keeping track of total leftover / scrap yardage used.
  • We have opened a Chat Thread in Ravelry forum to discuss about project ideas. In Lisa’s first post I’ve linked to a number of different patterns that will work well for scraps.  If you have other ideas, come chat in the thread and I’ll keep adding to the list.

On a Happy Note
  • Easter in my family is always an adventure. This year was the first one for which I hid the kids eggs. The adults did a 6 pack swap!
  • My niece Riley and I had a girls day out for her birthday

When we got home she opened her leg warmers and showed them off to Uncle Dan.image image
Sunday morning we did home-manicures. With lots of glitter and jewels.
Gorgeous right?!image
