Just a beautiful day!

Posted in nature lover, Yarn Shop activity tagged , , at 5:31 pm by outdoorknitter

Today was a day that most of us dream of..not a cloud in the sky, a cool breeze in the air, and butterflies. 

The yellow ones. 

Butterflies are something that I just don’t know by name as I do birds so…they are named by color.  At one time there were 6 in view…bouncing this way and that, looking for that special flower to rest on (I tried to capture two, on left.)


 There’s a smell of mud flats in the air, the river out back is just now back within it’s banks.  Reminds me of my childhood, down Dion Ave in Kittery, Maine.  When the tide was out we’d walk out as far as we could… barefoot, and come back with mud up to our knees. Mud…the smell of spring.

I finished the Dream In Color Tulip Cardigan the other day, it is as fun to make as it looks! 


After placing it on Savannah (yes, we have named her), we decided she was a little too bald and needed something on her head as well.  So here you have the Tulip Hat complimenting the ensemble (thank you…Mistress Stash Enhancer).

THIS is Dream In Color, isn’t it just yummy?this-is-dream-in-color.jpg

You can check back later this week for the sweater kits for this cardigan; several sizes for the Tulip Cardigan (girls) and the Rocketry (boy’s) pattern as well.  In addition, you can download both patterns, as well as other Dream In Color patterns, from here.

Here’s to Spring 08 and all it’s beautiful blossoms!
