The Merry Months of...SPRING!

('cause, it's not May yet, tho' almost!)

I finished the PSC socks! I love these, they feel wonderful! And the colors are light and muted spring tones...

But that wasn't even enough...so I pulled this out:

A skein of BFMA STR in Goody, Goody, I won last year in a contest on Becky's blog. I've been looking at these ice cream sherbet shades and thinking "scarf" but today decided that no, I'll make it up into Feather & Fan socks.

Yesterday, I found Samantha's pattern for Sweet Jazz, and after selling a bit of yarn I had listed on Ravelry today, went back and spent a bit of it on the pattern:

Called for Koigu. I have Koigu. But only 2 skeins of each color in stash and at minimum it needed three. Started digging a bit deeper in the stash bin and up came the Fleece Artist above! It's pinks and pale golds and greens (and I'm so not into green) but this could possibly find it's way into a gift for next winter holidays, so that's okay...I'm actually thinking I might then need to pick up some STR: Maybe Vancouver Violet? I'd need two to make this little special shawl for myself...I'll think on it...

I'll be a little hard to keep up with this weekend - not taking the laptop. I think I can touch base to check email, but it will be awhile. I'll catch you on the other side!

The socks are fabulous - lovely job! They are interesting enough to look at over and over, yet easy enough on the eyes to wear over and over. Just perfect.

I just love the new socks.. they look like waves! The new lace piece is just so very spring-like, and makes me want the same yarn:)

I usually run screaming from pastels, but that "Goody Goody" is really very pretty. I'm sure it'll make a great pair of socks. Likewise, your PSCs' and the Fleece Artist fiber are lovely too.

Namaste

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.
