There is still time to knit some peeps and colored eggs. The website addresses to cut & paste on your browser are: kat-knits.blogspot.com/2007/03/some-easter-peeps.html (other cute things too, love the grumpasaurus) littlecottonrabbits.typepad.co.uk/free_knitting_patterns/ (color charts for striped, polka-dot, or Fair Isle egg covers to stuff, or cover a plastic or Styrofoam egg)

Ultimate Knitting Retreat - Spring 2010

Fairy Tale Cottage in the Cotswolds – divine settings, picturesque and beautifully updated with all the modern conveniences. Here is the website:

http://www.holiday-rentals.co.uk/p412435 This is one fairy tale that could come true! Seven or eight of us could make this a memorable and affordable vacation to remember. Don’t miss the “Sheep in the meadow…” photo. So far four knitting/travel aficionados have expressed a strong interest in joining this group. Kay, who makes regular trips to a nearby area, can advise us regarding efficient, affordable travel. Please contact me if you are interested in this trip. (Congenial non-knitters are welcome also.)

The spring issues of Knitty and Twist Collective online magazines are available now. Both feature some beautiful patterns, and I love the Ladybug and Sunflower toys in Twist Collective.

Another blog I enjoy is theraineysisters.com. Scroll down to the Cashmina lace blouse, and the Bohus collar, both are gorgeous!

The Ultimate Tee class is going well, and Lisa and I are learning from our students too. Also coming up is the Socks from the Toe Up KAL.

Thanks for your support; I’ll be in touch soon regarding new classes.
