E is for Easter Dress

But first…look what I got from my hand-dyed yarn swap partner Mollie:
Pretty blue laceweight yarn inspired by the butterfly in the photo. It’s a little purplier than in the picture. She also made me some matching stitch markers. To go with the yarn, 101 Designer One-Skein Wonders, soak wash, and some cedar balls. Thanks Mollie!
On Saturday, I taught my first knitting class. Nobody signed up, but Cindi and Sonja decided to take it just for me. I think they kind of learned something. πŸ™‚
I knit another pair of intarsia mittens:
Maybe next time more people will sign up.
Finally, on Sunday we went to N’s grandparents’ house for Easter. Girly wore her dress that V got for her a while ago. She knew she was pretty, so she thought she could do whatever she wanted. We nearly missed out on church, but right as we were about to leave, we found out the church we went to had a daycare! What a great idea. We had never been to a church with a daycare before.IMG_0184IMG_0188IMG_0192IMG_0194
The kids were very good, and they didn’t even get messy. Girly did not want to get her pretty dress dirty!

    What pretty children you have, G seems so serious in pictures and he can be so funny too! Girlie is going to run you guys! ( ;
    Are the mittens really thick too? We will have you work on more designs so we are ready for next winter, the mountain of snow behind the house is going down though. I like the butterfly inspiration, wish I had fun mail………..
