I'm Hiding My Knitting!

I've decided that the only way I am going to be able to prepare my house for the Easter festivities is to have my husband hide my knitting. I'm telling you that the Clapotis pattern is TOTALLY ADDICTIVE. Once I get started I can't put it down. The variety of stitches almost insures no boredom. And you just have to keep on going knowing that soon you'll be able to drop those stitches and see the pattern emerge. I can't get anything else done...so, yeah, he's gotta hide the knitting. I have NO will power.

On an unrelated note, I won our family blog limerick contest! Yay me! I gotta tell you there was some stiff competition. I think WAY too many of us have kissed the Blarney Stone! Anyhow, that was a fun little March distraction to pass the time until Spring. My winning entry was in reference to my sister's two big dogs who both passed away last year (not at the same time and under totally different circumstances) They now have a little Westie that is the cutest thing... I gotta get one! Anyhow.... here is the winning limerick:

The Stapelfelds used to have dogs that were tough
with tails like big guns that would knock over stuff.
They now have a terrier
that fits in a carrier.
Poor Ben, that's gotta be "ruff".

Well, whadaya think?
