So we've all made it into April- YAY! For me, that means school's nearly done for the semester and even though I'm overloaded with projects, both school and crafting, I love the spring time!
Now onto my progress for the week:
I am still plodding along on my Lenten afghan, and with Easter being this Sunday, I'm pretty sure I'm going to have to push things back. But it is only Wednesday, and I might be ready by Sunday- you never know. I whipped up 2 completely new squares last week: the Easter Day Square and Butterfly Garden. The April Filler for the BAMCAL is also a lovely square: Schoharie Spring. I've started it, but have no photos of it.
I did start my second Claret Cowl, but I'm not thrilled. I think it's because I'm using bulky yarn, but everything just seems floppy and oversized. Not sure if I'll frog this and start again- I've been doing that a lot lately, and I hate the feeling of having worked with nothing to show for it.
I had a few minutes last night to play around with some buttons, hats and flowers. This is what I came up with:
What do you think?
The last thing for the day is my dyeing. Yesterday my cousin asked me to babysit her 5 kids (ages 3 to 12), so she brought them over (since she was going to be in town) and they helped me dye yarn for 3 hours or so. It was mostly pieces of recycled sweaters that I wanted to dye for larger projects, so we stuck to 3 similar colors per sweater. They had a lot of fun, I had a lot of fun, and my cousin told me later that they were exhausted.

So that's my progress report for the week. I hope the rest of your week goes well! I'm certainly looking forward to the rest of mine :)
Head on over to Tami's Amis for Work-in-Progress Wednesday.
