Everything Old is New Again

Spring has sprung and that means it’s time for the ritual airing of the tents.

Holly came over on Easter Sunday so we could set up our tents in preparation for the first campout of the season (T minus 10ish days and counting).  It’s been ridiculously windy and the tents have blown all over the yard, despite being staked down – thank goodness the fence is nice and high, otherwise you might spot tumbletents gamboling through the streets of North Arlington.

There hasn’t been much knitting lately.  As usual, I have a half dozen projects in some state of execution. A cardigan, a sock, and a shawl have all been in rotation lately but none of them are really getting me excited.

I did finish Molly though.

Whipped it up using Shepherd’s Wool in a red that didn’t photograph terribly well, but I LOVE this hat.  I wore it all winter (if we want to call that nonsense we experienced this year ‘winter’).  The ends aren’t woven in, of course, but how else would I be able to tell it was mine?


Happy Easter

Week One – Photo a Day April

At barely a quarter of the way through the year, I found myself already stumbling in my quest to finish a photo-a-day project for 2012.  Holly came across the Fat Mum Slim photo-a-day project so I decided to try to follow her prompts for April.  This is the first week’s effort:

1. Your Reflection, 2. Colour, 3. Mail, 4. Someone Who Makes You Happy, 5. Tiny, 6. Lunch, 7. Shadow, 8. Colour – alternate, 9. Shadow – alternate

The last two are alternates for days 2 and 7.  I think the center square is my favorite.

Let’s Go, Caps!

This was my view through much of the first period of the Caps v. Cats game Thursday night.  Thanks to a great friend, we were gifted free seats and were there in person to see the Caps clinch a playoff spot.

Will try to be better about this whole pesky blogging thing.  Since it looks like I’m going to be leaving D.C. within the next month or so, I should specify, I don’t have much of a choice in the matter (stupid unemployment).
