Outerbanks for Easter

We went to the OBX for Easter. It is always fun to go to the beach at this time of year. There are never crowds... but it is a bit cool.

hats, hats and more hats

I am using up some of my scrap yarn and making these hats. I liked the way they turned out!!! I used the Oregon Rose Cloche from Lanaknits and changed it just a bit. The white hat is the one most like the pattern.

PRGE pal's music

OK ladies--- My blogging has been very cumbersome lately. So we will see what we can do....

My pals punk songs are:
"Black No1" by Type-O-Negative
"Even Angels Fall" by The CruxShadows
"The Wall" by Pink Floyd

Now for some awesome yarn for Black No1 - I have chosen, which is a yarn from Blue Moon Fiber Arts. The color is called Shadow and is in the Ravenclan colorway. All of these colors are dark, yet beautiful. (oooh, my links don't seem to be working)

The picture is for a devil's hat for "Even Angels Fall"- it is in the Domiknitrix book.

See next post for project to go with "The Wall"

hemp market bag

I finished two hemp market bags. They are my easy to knit, carry around project. And... I think they'll make good gifts when I need one.

the anti-prom

MORP--- the high school dance that you don't really dress up for and just go with your friends. This is my daughter and her friend going to MORP supposedly dressed up as the 70's (remember we used to dress like the 50's??? Makes me feel old!)

On the knitting front... I am finishing up another hemp market bag. I like to make them to have around for gifts when I need one at the last minute. And I like the way they look and they are fun to knit too. Pix later...

Add the post and pix

Ok, I am having blogging problems....

But the vacation was wonderful. Kayaking and camping in the Everglades for four days. Nice to be in sunny Florida and away from the dreary, gray, icy weather here.

Aaaaah, a vacation
