although today isn't officially the first day of spring, i'm officially welcoming it! welcome march!
'tis the time for warm rains, lots of blooms, sweet smelling air, new babies, yellows, and this year, i'm going to try a few new things... one is sewing a garment (yikes)... and another would be trying an indoor garden of sorts. that one might be tricky, as we have a kitty... so i'll have to keep you posted.
do any of you have experience with this? i really would so love to grow herbs indoors. and i know it's entirely possible, however it's more just figuring out how to do that and keep a cat away from it. ha. hrmmm any tips would be greatly appreciated.
i'm also getting excited to use brighter colours! i have it on good authority that my knitpicks order is almost here! weeeeeee! of course, i've already gotten another wish list started. haha. but in the meantime, watching all of those hours of downton abbey have been very beneficial to my knitting... take a look at what's just about finished!
of course, i love this pattern. as it's the second time that i've knit jane richmond's classic raglan pullover. and probably not the last. and if it's something you're hankering to give a try.. check out canadian living! they're doing a kal for this pattern.. starting tomorrow! the details are on their blog.
and here's a little sneak peek at what i'll be swatching with today!
hint... it's 100% linen. this is a first for me :)
yep. spring is starting to show it's colours in this house! yippeee!! but you probably can't tell that i'm excited...
what are you up to today? what's on your needles? any big plans for spring? what is your favourite thing about this season? are you an indoor gardener? i'd love to hear any tips you may have for my impending indoor herb (and maybe more) garden! come chat! i'm about to brew a big pot of coffee. xo
