- ~~~Sorry, but I am not getting on this bandwagon. Shutting off all the electricity for an hour at 8:30 p.m. is stupid. For one thing, it screws up my two favourite Saturday night shows, Heartbeat and Midsomer Murders. I hardly watch any TV but I never miss these. And for another thing, I think every day is Earth Day. After all, that's where we live. Right? So I intend to continue being as eco-conscious as I always am in my day-to-day life. I re-use and recycle more than most and I am very aware of my energy consumption. Lights off, heat down, limited use of energy suckers like the dryer, all my appliances are energy savers, etc. etc. etc. And one more thing -- what happens when everyone flashes all their electricity back on at 9:30? Surely that's not a good thing, is it? ~~~ there I said it.*
On a lighter note - I made this adorable dress and hat for darling granddaughter's second Easter:
The dress is the Jane Austen dress from Mason-Dixon: Knitting Outside the Lines and the hat is the Rosy Scalloped hat from Tot Toppers . Both very simple patterns. I took the advice of other Ravelry knitters and made size 4. I think size 2 would be too small for my little munchkin. As she doesn't live nearby I'll have to wait for pictures of her wearing it.
