Lizard Ridge Afghan Squares Progress

Progress on the Lizard Ridge Afghan(Knitty.com Fall Pattern) thus far...13 blocked and 6 to be blocked, and one OTN, and then 6 to go. I started out hoping to use mostly blue & green Noro Kureyon, but ended up mixing in a bunch of colorways, and I do like the fact that I went in that direction. Ends still need to be sewn in, which should have been done {before} blocking......

I have to learn how to crochet so that I can edge the entire blanket when I finally have it all sewn up.

Happy Easter

Chris and I are going over to my sister's tomorrow for Easter Dinner, and I offered to bring CAKE! This is carrot cake with cream cheese icing, and flaked coconut tinted with NEON food coloring.

Silk-Tie-Dyed Easter Eggs

Just finished making some hard boiled eggs. I have been using this technique for a few years. I saw it done on "Martha" awhile ago. You take 100% silk ties and cut the fabric apart, then wrap a raw egg in the fabric, cover it with cheesecloth, and twist tie it at the top, then hard boil the eggs in a mixture of water and white vinegar. When you unwrap the eggs, you'll get a nice surprise.
