Welcome Spring – come on in! Sit down and stay for awhile!! Are you all as excited as I am that we ushered in spring last night? Boy oh boy – I can tell you that this household certainly is! And, it seems that as March came roaring in like a ravaging lion, the forecast for the next 8 days are more lamb-like! We are supposed to reach 50 degrees today – and it is supposed to rain! Unlike the song – rainy days and “Wednesdays” don’t always get me down! The rain will be welcome – something to wash all the dirt away. Something to help perk up the grass and encourage the tulips and daffodils to bloom! With a week of 50 degree temperatures, by the weekend there will be color everywhere!
I have been looking through the new Knitty.com and there are several patterns that have caught my eye! Tahoe is certainly a lovely sweater!
I love the drape of the yarn and the sleeves! Debbie Bliss and Koigu – can you get a better combination than this?
What about Bauble? I have not done any bead knitting, but the colors drew me in!
Nice? I love this! This would match much of what is in my “spring” closet! Michaels here I come!
Then I saw these… Quill Lace socks!
Okay, I can see my daughter in these – I don’t have any Lisa Souza yarn, but I do have a goodly amount of sock yarn in my stash – I will have to finish my Bloomin’ Feet Socks and cast these beauties on!
But, the thing that really caught my eye was More stripes
I have some Noro Silk Garden in my stash – all I need are 4 skeins of a contrasting color. I think that will not break my New Year’s Resolution
too badly – so I am heading for my LYS
to get the yarn! This sweater will also help me with my resolution – it is “steeked” – so I will be learning a new technique as well! I need to knit furiously on my Simple Knitted Bodice so I can cast this beauty on!
Have a wonderful day as you usher in spring to your neighborhood!
