April is here!

Now, get WARM! GO! sigh.

Those readers that have been around for a while know that last year I participated in Socktopia. Socktopia was great fun. You knit a pair of socks based on themes chosen by the group moderator. Prizes were given away, free patterns made their way in, lots of fun stuff. Early this year the group founder and moderator, MommaMonkey passed away due to Lupus complications. Most of the loyal Socktopia peeps thought this was the end of our beloved event. Not so! A couple members made a Ravelry group and continued the adventure, with Momma's family's consent. I joined up again on Ravelry, and if any of the other Ravelers are interested, come on over! The rules about starting a pair, and finishing the pair in the same month have been relaxed, so it is totally non-pressure. join me! You know you want to!

This month's themes are:

April Showers (an original Socktopia theme in honor of Gigi)
Trees and Rocks (both Earth and Arbour Day land in April)
Hans Christian Andersen (born in April and wrote a story which mentions darning socks)
All that glitters is gold (Gold was discovered in the Yukon on April 4th, 1896)

I have some ideas.... And I'm leaning towards this yarn:

Also, I'm making progress on my zippery sweater! Only 3/4 of a sleeve to go!

hmmm... Interesting! I love the colorway of your yarn. I'll have to dig around to see if I got something to use for the KAL!

It's wonderful that the KAL she started is being continued. What a good thing.

Can't wait to see what you knit with that yarn.
