Today was the start of our Easter festivities. It started bright and early this morning with an egg hunt at the local high school. This was Cole's first 'real' egg hunt, for some reason we didn't go to any last year. It was actually really nice, it wasn't very crowded and the parents all pretty much backed off and left the kids have at it. They were split up according to ages so I stayed with Cole at the smaller field while Ryan took Logan to the older kids field. At the 2-4 year olds field they had 2,000 eggs spread out and there might have been about 50 kids (if that) there so Cole made out pretty good. Though he really didn't understand the point at first but once he got the hang of it he was grabbing handfuls of them to put in his basket.
After we left there, we went home for a little while and then headed to my fil's house for Easter dinner there with my sil her family, fil, his wife, her son and parents and fils parents. I have more pictures and stories from that but I think I will save them for a later day, I don't want to overwhelm you with pictures all at once ;)
On the knitting front I'm having major issues. I was working on my monkey socks the other day and my yarn would not come out of my center pull ball anymore. It kept getting hung up and snagged on itsself. So I had the bright idea to rewind it from the outside well that just made an even bigger mess. So right now its in a time out. Last night I started working on my Multnomah and I ended up having the same issue with that. I'm almost finished with the shawl and want to get it DONE. So I started rewinding that from the outside too and made another HUGE mess. I tried for about an hour or more to get it fixed to no avail. I ended up having to cut it and rejoin it to the non messed up ball. I have no idea whats going on. Any ideas? Could it be my winder or just something that I'm doing wrong in the winding process? I didn't get the chickens finished for the boys baskets. I have one almost done but there is no way I'm going to get the other one done and in the basket for tomorrow, maybe I'll give one to Cole and make Logans later I don't know...
I'm just not feeling the knitting love right now. I'm at a loss as what to work on, I'm not finding anything that I really really want to make. I need to find some things soon so I can take a shopping list along to the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival!!
Well we have another busy day tomorrow, Easter with my family and visiting with more of Ryan's!
