Happy May Day

I can remember when I was little, we would make flower baskets and give them to our teachers on May 1st. Does anybody do that anymore? or Does everyone just consider this a Communist/Socialist holiday now? I want to remember the flower baskets.

On the Crochet/Knit Front The sweater will be completed in time for our trip and I should have pictures posted any day now. It looks really good and I had no problem blocking it. I want to give a shout out Marly at Yarnthing Podcast, www.yarnthing.blogspot.com , for her podcast anniversary. It was a great show Marly. Keep up the good work. Also I have started a new group on Ravelry, www.ravelry.com . It is called Low Fat Knitters and Crocheters. I have had a great response so far. If you are a member of Ravelry, join in our discussion of low fat cooking, recipes, health issues, weight loss and of course, what is on our hooks and needles.

On the Green Front The Spring/Summer issue of Vogue Knits is all about "green" yarn. I am so excited. I have been buying some bamboo and organic cotton for my stash and would love to go completely to "green" yarns (I would not mind if they were even all different shade of the color green as well because that has always been my favorite color.) I will add a link to the issue on both Favorites-Crochet and Favorites-Green since it fits both categories.

I thought I would let everyone know that I made an A- on the terrible paper I had such a hard time writing. I am very excited because this should be the only class of this type that I will have to take in my Grad School adventure.

Peace,
Laura
