Happy Almost Easter!

My Knitty Secret Pal did it again! Yesterday, Rowan and I both got a package filled with Easter yummies. Notice one bag of candy is already missing (Rowan was so excited that the package was for her she ate the mini-eggs before I could even take a picture!!). Thanks SPGR8!! Our Easter weekend will involve meeting my new nephew!! Baby Connor was born on Tuesday!! Yeah!! Mom, dad, and little guy are all doing well. Can't wait to meet him!

So last night I cast on for.........

my log cabin blanket. I'm so excited to start this project, which was inspired by January One's gorgeous log cabin blankets, using none other than, Socks that Rock! So of course, this is going to be named, The Blanket that Rocks (I hope!). I'm using STR heavyweight in Blue Moonstone (on top), Midsummer's Night (bottom left), and In the Navy (bottom right). Of course, its all garter stitch and its on size 6 needles, so ummm...we'll see how long this blanket rocks?! But I sooooooo love the yarn!! I have a feeling this will be a WIP for awhile...we'll see.

Its almost Friday!! Yeah!! Happy Knitting! xoxoxo Irishgirlieknits
