Too Pretty Not to Post

Published by under Fiber,Knitting

Oh, I am a bad bad blogger. I keep finishing things and taking pictures, but forgetting to put them up. This will be a short little post with pictures, because the Hanami Stole really just speaks for itself. It’s lovely! Thank you Melanie of Pink Lemon Twist for creating this pattern. I’ve knitted it up in an alpaca/silk dusty rose blend, added a few extra beads, and put it into the church auction. It brought in a pretty penny and went to someone who really appreciates it.

Spinning outside!

April 1, 2010: High of 80+ degrees Fahrenheit.

The gooseberry bush is nearly in full leaf, the daffodils are blooming, and the forsythias burst into bloom today.

After work, I spun purple corriedale and silk on the front porch and posted to the blog.

This is April 1 in Chicago. Given the weather and the events of the day, I fear the sky may be falling.
