Hoppy Easter!


Happy Easter, Happy Passover, Happy Spring! Whatever your denomination (or not) this is a great time of year. The sun is out more often, the weather is warming up (most of the time) and the flowers are beginning to bloom. This time of year always feels like the start of something new to me. It is a great time to think of fresh knitting. It's time to put away those hats, scarves and wrist warmers and turn to spring knitting. I've started knitting with cotton - not something I've ever done before and I highly recommend it. It is so soft and the colors are amazing! Also it seems to be cheaper than some of the other yarns out there. So far I've only knit wash cloths but they are so quick and fun and they lead to instant gratification. Maybe next I'll knit a tank top or spring sweater! I think spring is a time to make new knitting resolutions just like New Year's. It's time to take on a new challenge, knit a fresh new item, just get out there and knit! So happy everything to everyone including Happy Spring Knitting!

Love the colours in your photo - nice and springlike! Here it doesn't look like spring. We had snow overnight and today...yuck!

It is cold and snowing off an on here. Your pictures are always so lovely, I find myself wondering where your yarn will be photographed when I come to read your blog!

Beautiful :) I have to visit you for signs of spring ;) ...we are expecting snow for Thursday :(

Watch out...knitting cloths is so addictive, but I don't mind because at least they are very useful and always make nice gifts !!

happy knitting :)

Another gorgeous picture! (And another yummy ball of yarn!!) I was thinking a tank top would be fun as well. If you could send a little warm weather my way....
