It's Spring - There's No Doubt

These are popping up all over the front yard - they were one of my mom's favorites and I must admit that I love them, too!

Another sure sign of spring? Well...more Posies! (you may click to embiggen)

(If you love blue & white china as I do, this might be the one for you...)

But I am also partial to Spectator pumps and black and white!

And I couldn't resist this one. Most nana's love sock monkeys, I think.

These three have gone down to the Knitter's Knook. But if you absolutely have to have one, I suspect I can get it back! Or make more.

Why, um, yes. I did go to the Knitter's Knook today. Yes, I did buy more yarn...what? You want to know what I bought? Well, two more skeins of black and one of taupe Mission Falls 1824 Wool for the Log Cabin blanket. I hadn't realized how this was going to soak up yarn like a sponge does water.


Still, it's going to be a yummy addition to my office. Now, if I can just find a nice chair for my knitting room/office - something to recline in. That's my next project.

I will tell you that I was very very good. I had a chance to buy enough Noro Silk Garden to make another Clapotis. I declined. It was one of the hardest things I've ever done. I had no idea how yummy Silk Garden is.

Of course, Becky did tell me all I had to do was pick up the phone and she'd hold it for me.

That Becky. She's such a good enabler...
And I'm really really trying to keep my mind on my priorities. Chateau Morrisette next weekend with the Virginia Fiber Folk from Ravelry, and the Yarn Harlot in Charlotte NC the following week. Oh. And that reclining knitting chair, too.

But still...that was gorgeous Silk Garden...

It does look like spring, and you sound more your usual cheerful self as well... of course I love the sock monkey fabric! Have you ever considered a sideline of aprons? They are in the store windows downtown this week, retro and funky and cute and reminding me of your fabrics!

Very nice Posies!

Turning down Silk Garden must have been torturous! I commend you on your restraint

I love the colors of Silk Garden. But I don't love knitting with it that much. But I love the end result. I'm fickle.

So I'm not alone in my love of blue and white china? That's good to know. :) Lovely new bags.

It's such a relief to see all the spring flowers finally popping up all over the blogs. I was starting to feel guilty with our early California flowers.

Beautiful flowers and bags Sallee, so springlike and fresh! Thanks for sharing.

Did you see a good local response to Earth Hour? We did, although most people I spoke with during the day, didn't know a thing about it. Why not on the front of the Sat. newspaper????

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
