The Rain in Maine

falls mostly on the Coast! Snow all around us, but bare ground here. It poured, and the wind howled, and if it had been snow we would be buried. Instead the sun is actually trying to come out and the ground is bare. It's a little scary to think what March may have in store for us!






I won a Ravelympics Gold Medal for my baby kimono - the pattern
is from Mason/Dixon Knitting, and the hat pattern is from Last Minuted Knitted Gifts. The yarn is Sugar N' Cream Stripes.
Also received gold medals in the Stash Dance for my Sunray neck scarf and WIP Dance for my sister's shawl. (photos in previous posts).

On the needles and hooks: A felted Easter basket and a crochet bunny to go in it.

On the bookshelf: I just finished a perfectly delightful book, "Aunt Dimity's Death" by Nancy Atherton and enjoyed it so much I've already ordered the next in the series.
I'm currently reading "Perfect Match" by Jodi Picoult. Like most of her books, tugs at the heartstrings. And I'm listening to "Weekend Warriors" by Fern Michaels, where in the tradition of The First Wives Club, an angry group of women take the law into their own hands.
