It’s about the time of year that I start to get a little antsy. The world looks like this…
But I want it to look like this.
It’s not that I mind the snow. I just wish we got it in November to January, and by February we were onto spring!
With global warming, maybe that will happen at some point, but until it does, I’m left to page through my seed catalogues and dream.
When I’m not dreaming, I’m knitting with spring on my mind.
The pattern is Calendula. Right now it’s endless short rows of garter, but eventually the beautiful lace leaves will start to emerge. And they will be beaded too! It’s been so long since I knit a shawl – it’s nice to be at it again.
The yarn is our Top Cat, and it’s a blend of cashmere and merino. The colour is Jiminy Cricket, and it’s one of my earliest creations. It’s about time it’s being used!
