Ok, so let the madness begin. I have 2 days left to do 2 months worth of housework to prepare for my houseful of company for Easter Dinner. I have to work today, I have to work tomorrow and I have a hair appointment after work tomorrow that will take a few hours. So, yes, panic is setting in big time. The good news is that I got the grocery shopping and the wine shopping done last night so I consider that some type of progress. I guess I should just be happy that it's not 10 - 15 years ago when I was worrying about easter dresses, easter shoes, easter baskets, dyeing eggs, and all the things that come with having 3 little kids to get ready for Easter. In spite of the craziness, I'm looking forward to having everyone there. I'll miss my sister visiting her daughter in London and my oldest daughter who can't come home from Delaware. But, hey, more ham for the rest of us, right??

No knitting news to speak of. I got to the point that I could drop stitches on Clapotis last night and couldn't keep my eyes open long enough to get into it. What a disappointment. And I don't see that I'll be able to pick it back up any time soon. Since I started Clapotis, the sweater has been sitting in a corner begging to be worked on but I'm too enthralled with the pretty green yarn and interesting pattern that I can't force myself to go back to the sweater just yet.

I noticed a honeymoon cami knit-a-long going on. That pattern scares me for some reason. I love it, but I think it's the decreases for the fitting that sends the chills down my spine. Everyone seems to have trouble with left-facing and right-facing decreases. Without someone sitting beside me and telling me what to do, I don't think I'm quite ready for that.

I finally ordered the scarf book that I wanted from I looked at it at A.C.Moore and loved some of the patterns in there. Definitely good Christmas knitting material.

Well, keep good thoughts that I get my house in order and don't poison anyone on Sunday.
(not to worry family... I have it all under control...honest)
