The Lacy Sweater and the A to Z "Theme Reveal"

The sweater is going fairly well...


I didn't get much done on it last week due to choosing to go to bed over watching TV and knitting. It was that kind of week.

I got introduced to "zombie" Easter bunny amigurumi which I may have to try.



But, of course, today is the A to Z Challenge Theme Reveal Day. Since I pretty much blog every day anyway, I will again partake. For me, the challenge is in keeping up with the hop portion. 

Regular readers know my "theme". My challenge is to fit my normal posts to the letter of the day. 

I've already written my Tuesday "what if?" posts. X falls on a Friday this year, and I managed to find a great quiz that features it. (Unless something interesting happens that I can fit to X, that is. But I might keep it at the end as the quiz is so perfect.) The rest of the days it's a whole lot of "how can I title the crazy thing that happened at school to fit the day's letter?" 

Wish me luck. 

Are you doing the A to Z Challenge in April?

  3. Ooh, should be a fun read! I am planning to feature music again this year with a focus on performers new to me thanks to a local college radio station. I couldn't resist writing blurbs for fake bands, as well. ~grin~ I only caught on to today being the big reveal until finding both you and Keith Hillman mention it on your blogs. Since I posted an unprecedented two times today I guess I'll blog about my reveal tomorrow. Be well!

    1. For some reason the reveal was on my radar. Not sure why. (I've missed it in previous years.)

  15. You did well with getting your posts to fit last year, I'm sure you can do it again :) I like the pattern and color on that sweater.

  16. Ha! I thought I had missed the reveal which is why I shared last week. Oops. I guess I was just in that mindset of planning ahead. (And I don't follow the A-Z challenge blog that closely.) Looking forward to seeing how you finagle your blog post titles to fit in with the A-Z theme. :) And taking your X quiz, of course!

    1. I don't follow the challenge blog that closely, either. For some reason the reveal just ends up on my radar.

  20. I'm not playing this year cos we are going bush and internet connection is unlikely for about 3 weeks. Will do what I can, but I don't like to put myself up for failure. Good luck.

  21. First time visitor to your blog. Looking forward to your #AtoZChallenge posts. I haven't been blogging much lately and chose a rather challenging theme for this year, so I hope I will be able to keep up. By the way, that zombie easter bunny sounds cool.
