I took a few pictures of the family Easter celebration. Here are the ones whose subjects did not object to being posted online. These two were at M-i-L’s house
The holidays were very nice. The oldest came home from college to get in on the baking and egg dying. My mother declined to host the Sedar this year, but youngest and M-i-L went to B-i-L’s parents for theirs, and the girls went to M-i-L’s Easter service (hubby and I were supposed to go, but it didn’t work out that way – maybe next year).

Stacey reviewed the Knook (crochet hook for knitting), which I’ve been mildly curious about for a while.
I Love My Ott!
I got this little baby when I ordered my Amigurumi Knits book. It seems almost overpowering, doesn’t it? It’s not actually that bright (and I don’t set it down on what I’m working on anyway). It has a little bank of LEDs which give a great quality of light. I really like how it brings out colors. I like to bring it with me on yarn buying trips, so I can really see what I’m getting (the other option being to take the yarn up to the front of the store and look at it in actual daylight).
Blog Contests and Giveaways
I didn’t win Techno Hookers copy of “Custom Crocheted Sweaters“, but I did enter Sandra Singh’s Spring Maple Shawl Kit giveaway (drawing 21 April), and the Yarn Exploder’s drawing for Vampire Stitch Markers from Decor Noir (end of April)
