A long overdue post!

The activity that Easter preparations brought is waning and I'm back at the keyboard with some new projects I'm working on.
How was your Easter, by the way? Ours was fantastic - we had fresh fried Lake Erie perch for our Easter dinner. After Roger hit pay dirt with his rod & reel in the Inner Bay, we chucked the idea of ham for our Easter dinner and had it the next day. I'd show you a picture of the fried fish but I ate it.
I've started a few knitting projects for the summer;
"Rosa's Dress" from the new Debbie Bliss magazine

The "Pride & Prejudice" dress from Mason-Dixon Knitting Outside the Lines

I'm working on finishing my "Tiptoe Cardigan" from Spud & Chloe. I found a great, inexpensive alternative to pins and/or those over-priced little clips they're selling now in the LYSes. Just hop on over to your local dollar store and pick up some little-girl hairclips. They're fantastic for holding your knitting together while you seam.
This is the colour combnation I have in mind for one of the dresses. My fauxtography skills are lacking - they don't do the colours justice!
I ordered this book and read it. I'm not qualified - and I'm too much of a chicken - to give this an honest review and publish it here on my happy little knitting blog. Let's just say that publishing a book is a huge accomplishment - and this one is enjoying lots of "box office"- if not critical- success. I admire Kelle's productivity most of all. The verdict? I will pass this along to my younger friends - the under-30 demographic seems to be this book's target market. How's that for tact?
