A long weekend

Warning: Lots of pictures in this post! (If you’re only here fore the knitting… scroll to the end.)

We have a four-day weekend because of Easter, and so far, it’s been lovely. After doing some homework this morning, we dyed Easter eggs this afternoon. I did three different colours of dye using Martha Stewart’s instructions here. I was a bit worried about them being dull because of the food colouring, but the eggs actually turned out really bright!

I just finished reading Dash and Lily’s Book of Dares. It was a really quick read but it did make me laugh. I also finally got my hands on a copy of the Yarn Harlot‘s All Wound Up. I started it last night and, as usual, the Yarn Harlot is really funny.

As for knitting, I’ve finished up the sample for my latest design. It’s being tested now and I’m really excited to release it! I’m hoping to get it out on April 21st. While it’s being tested, I’m working on a scarf for my sister.

It’s from a kit my grandmother got for me when she visited Belfast Mini Mills in PEI last summer. The yarn is an angora blend and so, so soft. (On Ravelry here)

I’m planning on making cupcakes tonight… does anyone have any favourite recipes?

Have a great long weekend!


  1. I was going to make cupcakes today too! AND I just finished a scarf! So coincidental… it’s like we’re the same person 😛 The pattern looks great by the way! Working on the next one we discussed? 🙂

    • Haha… sometimes I wonder 😛 Working on it… it was going great until I started the colourwork last night and discovered I can’t count. So I ripped it all out and now I have less than I had before… but it’ll get done!
