Spring is coming...

Spring is coming. I can feel it. It's in the air. The days are longer. The sun is brighter, the ice is gone, and the snow melts faster! We are enjoying 60 degree temperatures after a really harsh winter. I love snow as much as the next person, but come on. So to honor Spring, I made a few hats.

See that sky? I did not edit it. It really looked like that!

Another fun knit from Leslie.

Was anyone else as excited as I was on Saturday night waiting for the new Twist Collective? I was like a little kid on Christmas Eve waiting for Santa. The new issue did not disappoint either. There are a lot of beautiful patterns. I really love Cherry Fizz by Kate Gilbert. That will probably be next on my queue. I am working on the Tangled Yoke Cardigan too. I finished one sleeve. I love this sweater, but for some reason I just need to take little breaks from it!

Great hats! I also just finished making the chunky knit beanie (well, sorta, I still need to seam it)- just in time for the 70 degree weather we've been having.

Thanks for pointing me to the Twist Collective. I love the Dulche De Leche sweater, but wonder if I could actually finish that before it turns cold again.
