Happy Easter!

Did everyone have a fantastic Easter and/or Easter Weekend?  I did.  I had Friday off and watched Antonio....we had a good time.  I got lots of knitting done, but first I am going to start with a few things that came in the mail last week right after I did a blog update.

I won some prizes from the Down Cellar Studios PigSkin Party....I was so excited to hear that I won.  I won 2 bags from Suburban Stitcher.  One bag is HUGE!  The other is sock drawstring size.  I love them both and love the "Sporty" fabric!

I also won a dishcloth booklet and some stitch markers from a dishcloth a month group I am a member of:

I also got another skein of DVD yarn....Most of the time when I buy yarn, it is for the colors...but this time, it was because of the name.  Chicka Boom...this is from the book Chicka Chicka Boom Boom....I used to read it to my kids all the time and now they read it to their kids.  I love this book and this yarn!

Lastly for stash enhancements, I got the rest of my "Rope" yarn from Poland:

I have put this project in my New Big Huge Bag!

I finished the last Mug Hug for my Aunt and Uncle:

I worked a little on my Miss Babs "Bump In The Road" project...the pattern is called Cercis:

I finished my March Socks...Yeah!  We went to Hot Rod Night this past Saturday evening and I finished them there.

I have my yarn ready for my April socks.....I was going to try to use the new sock sack that I just won...but I think this yarn looks much better with the Bags By Awesomegrannie bag....what do you think?

I worked a little on my 3 color cashmere shawl...I have 8 of the 10 stripes of each color done.  I am almost to the third color!

Lastly, I worked on my Citadel....the sleeves were getting really tight on my 16" cable so I went to magic loop, but I always wanted to try these 12" I just got a 12" needle in size 7 (today) and I will see how it works on the sleeves tonight....I will let you know next week :)  I already started to pick up stitches for the collar (since I was holding off on the sleeves till this needle came in)....and while picking up stitches, I found a mistake in my is so far back, it is not getting will just have to be a design element, and the part that makes it unique!  I am a little bummed about it, but oh well, it is what it is and I think the collar will be able to hide most of it....anyway, here is my progress and new needle.

Now....for a new project....Yes, I am crazy, but I think we all know that.  You know I have finished one Hyper Nova aka Hyper Crazy....and I have frogged one too....well, I want to make another one and I have Darlene, Marla, Barbara and Evelyn all joining me...maybe even Carol from SNB will join in.   I will use stash yarn called is Miss Babs Katahdin.  Darlene got me this yarn for my birthday in 2014.  Now, Darlene sold her Masquerade yarn to Marla, so she had to buy new yarn (I think that might have been her plan...LOL!) and she got the most awesome color called Wolves Den...I am in LOVE with screams "Carrie".  Here is my yarn and her yarn...I think we are starting this coming Friday....April Fools Day :)

My Masquerade:

Darlene's Wolves Den:

Well, that is just about all I have.....I hope you all have a fabulous not get fooled on April Fools Day!

Here are some fun pictures, a couple of Hot Rod Night Pictures, and of course, a couple of pics of Antonio with Cascarones!

Happy Happy Happy knitting everyone!
