In Like a Lion . . .

Let's hope that March goes out like a lamb :-) I experienced my first Nor'easter this weekend. I was in Connecticut and the storm dumped snow all over the Eastern Seaboard, with about a foot or so where I was. Still, my plane was one of the only ones that left Hartford yesterday - very close to on-time, and we arrived early back in Chicagoland!

Great vacation!! Yay!!

So, here's St. Patrick. It's looking a little lumpy, but I'm a kindy lumpy, I guess, and I have another shirt on under it, it had just survived a long flight, and a lot of time in the car including a long car ride to the shore, and it got a lot of wear this last week on vacation.

How brave am I to put a photo of my ass on the Internet?! Something I'm sure I'll regret in the future, but I thought you'd like to see the back. This is a great sweater. It's way warm. The sleeves are having a little tendency to stretch, which is no problem since all you have to do is cuff them. Problem solved. And really, better have them a little long than look like Ichabod Crane in them. I'm glad I added a little length in the body (my body is long). I love the yarn - I'm also using it, in blue, for St. Brigid. I can see me wearing this sweater a LOT. A really lot.

More about my trip later because I have to get ready to go to work - suffice it to say that was great :-)

New month, new photo :-) That's me, no makeup, happy as can be, on vacation. Photo taken at Lenny & Joe's Fish Tale at the shore. Big Fun. Great Food. :-D
