Look!! Those are the very first signs that Spring is actually going to visit the Valley this year...whoo hoo!
Of course what you do not see is the 5 foot snowbank right next to the bush that these little buds are hiding under....but that's ok....this will do for today :-)
The other day Anne asked if I wanted to test one of her quick scarf patterns...quick, fun and pretty, how could I resist?
I wanted to do it in a solid color so that the incredibly beautiful pattern would shine and this green literally jumped into the dye pot minutes later. The color reminds me of the fiddleheads that we will see soon....and the airy pattern actually reminds me a bit of the ferns that you will find around fiddleheads often.
I guess I am going to have to admit it.....I am weak. Remember I told you that another sock had caught my eye? ....the temptress that she is, winked an eye at me and that was that. I could not resist casting on immediately.
This is an incredibly easy pattern but with an air of sophistication. Another fabulous sock for traveling, which we did again today. (More about these weekend jaunts later in the week).
Now, just to prove that I can knit a pair of socks and lest you think that I have completely abandoned litter Peter in the cabbage patch, I did immediately cast on and have completed the toe on the second sock. This is one sock that will have it's mate for sure!
