Hope everyone had a good Passover, Easter or spring weekend!
We had quite an Easter, starting with our traditional Bunny Trail, which combines kids' toys, jellybeans and chocolate eggs to lead the littles to their baskets. Buddy requested that the trail split this year and lead to separate hiding places, and the bunny must have heard him, 'cuz that's what happened. Our kids believe for real and I get so proud/protective/scared of the sweet little bubble they live in. Some say they're headed for a hard fall, but I don't know. My own belief was so strong that I still am half-convinced that Santa lives at the North Pole, even though I know who fills the stockings around here.
Buddy had a hard time later when he dropped his chocolate bunny and the ears broke off. You know how that goes. Aunt K melted some chocolate and did her best at a surgical repair, but the ears stayed off for good.
"This is a sad day for me," he kept saying. Then he fell asleep. When he woke up, the neighbors could play and the day looked better.
In knitting news, people are zipping along on the Kate Cardigan. Yay!
In case you're playing along at home, we've got new errata up on our website, so make sure to check it out when you get to the sleeve caps.
We're proud to say that Knitcircus has some new stores–you can now find us in Colorado!

We're in the thick of layout, tech editing and final countdown to publication on Knitcircus #6. Watch for some fun teaser pics soon!
And I've been doing some relaxing, no-deadline knitting. I started out making a review swatch for Aurucania's new sugarcane yarn, and couldn't stop working with it!
It's turning out to be a candy-colored, warm-season scarf for me! Shown here with some of our earliest-blooming flowers. These pink ones (whose name I forget) and our crocuses are the first we see every year. Pattern: Diagonal Lace Scarf, free from Midnight Purls or as a Ravelry download.
