Albany Frugal Family Examiner

I started a new writing gig. I am the Albany Frugal Family Examiner. I'll be posting links here in hopes that you might want to check out my articles.

The Examiner pays based on internet traffic. So, the more people that read my articles, the longer they spend on my articles, the more comments I get, and the more people who subscribe, the more money I make.

Also, they offer a generous "finder's fee" if someone I know gets a job as a writer at Examiner.

So, if you like to support my new writing endeavor I would really appreciate it if you go read my articles, comment, and subscribe!! THANK YOU!!! :)

Decisions, Decisions, Decisions

I'm having a hard time trying to figure out what to knit next. Want to help me decide?

1--I could make an Itty Bitty Hat since I am working towards knitting every hat in the book.

2--I could finish my huge felted tote bag that I've been working on for forever. I just have the pockets left to do and then I need to felt it.

3--I could make the i-cord closures for my Easter Duck Soup and sew the buttons on.

4--Cast on my April sweater for my sweater a month challenge.

5--Cast on something from my 10 in 2010 list like Calorimetry or Fetchings.

Almost FO: Easter Duck Soup

Almost done! He could have worn it today without closures. However, it was nearly 80 degrees and a bulky sweater was the last thing he needed. The hood is SUPER cute!! The body is a little big on him I made the size 2/3 and he is a very thin size 2. So, I expected it to be big. I haven't done the i-cord button loops yet. I bought toggle buttons to use instead of the i-cord buttons. Since the sweater is so big on him, I'll probably back burner this WIP.

Happy Easter!! :)
