Happy Easter!



I don't know exactly what I did with this week. We spent several days in Cambria and stayed at the San Simeon Pines Resort, which is basically a nice hotel with a swimming pool, shuffle board, and mini-golf course. We had a really nice time. It's right on the beach. Russ, Paige, and I ran along the boardwalk for a couple of miles one morning, and then Russ and the kids "played" golf. I didn't get in much knitting, but I did work my way out of the "knitting doldrums." I actaully got half-way through my second "lacey" sock which I will probably never wear but that looks so nice on my sockblockers.






As I've said before, I'm kind of obsessed with the little rabbits that Julie at Little Cotton Rabbits knits. I finally found a bunny pattern that reminds me of Julie's little rabbits. I bought it from Fuzzy Mitten's Etsy Shop. It's so cute and easy to knit, but still looks like some talent was involved in putting it together. I ordered it late one night, and she had emailed me the pattern by the next morning! I finished him in the car today on the way to Fresno to spend Easter with family, and I made Paige model him while she was reading her book, then I had to take some more pictures of him because he is just so totally cute.

Very lovely bunny you've made! Well done. Sorry to hear you've been sick and under pressure (am just now catching up on blog reading, so of course am behind on a few posts). Hope you're up and at it again with all the plates spinning nicely in the air. I have a couple of cheer-me-up Gromits to send you, which I'll do right now....

I love family vacations like that - where you don't feel pressured to do everything - you just enjoy each other's company while having fun together. And it sounds like you did. What a great family you have.
