breathe deep

...i think it's safe to say that we're all really anticipating spring. don't you think so?

it's been  a strange winter for me. and i'm more than ready to breathe fresh spring air, and to start looking for florals. :)

heck, just to reach for a handknit, instead of a jacket... now that will be awesome!
i always thought that the fall was my ultimate favourite time of year... but now i'm not so sure. i loove the fall, definitely... but i'm loving the springtime more and more... hey, winter and summer aren't so bad either... buuut.. yeah, let's not talk winter today, ok?

spring is super great for being inspired for things to grow and being outside and stuff... but what about those woolens? i mean they can't be just for winter.. can they? i say no! ...clearly!

 do you remember this?

i crocheted this baby up last year for a class at the cloth castle. the pattern is based on the summer garden granny square by attic24. and you can read more about it here if you'd like to.

 and ummmm did you see this cotton cowl?

yah. pretty cute. this is the striped cotton cowl, from the purlbee.. and i think it's fairly awesome.

so you see? lots of very exciting things to look forward to this spring! and i'm totally planning on getting my hands dirty with some balcony gardening... as soon as i figure out what i'm doing ;)

 how about you? are you looking forward to spring? what big plans do you have for the change of seasons? what's in your que? i'm all ears, and ready to plan with you! xo


  1. As soon as I finish hubs sweater I'm casting on for Yvonne http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/yvonne I've been drooling over it for a while but I've been so busy with gift knitting that I've been putting it off. I have plenty of Damask yarn http://www.ravelry.com/yarns/library/rowan-damask to make it up.

    I confess I've got my fingers crossed that it'll fit in with the next KAL...otherwise I'll have to knit fast!

    1. i'm excited to see pics of the sweater! that's also a neat pattern! what colour are you going to knit it up in? xo

  2. It's definitely hard not to think about spring with the warm winter we've been having in the northeast (US). I'm still determined to knit some warm woolies but my needles are definitely turning towards shawls to wrap on cool shoulders and cotton mix accessories. I haven't knit socks in a long time and I'm itching to cast on some. As for flowers, those photos you shared are inspiring.

    1. evelyn, so good that you're still knitting away though :) you should most definitely knit up a pair of socks! what pattern appeals to you most? xo
