Happy Easter

Wishing a Happy Easter to everyone!  Spring has arrived here in Seattle as well :)  Today it was 60F and sunny, the best day this year.  People are thrilled to have long days again and sun!  Hibernation has ended.

I haven't made any sewing progress, sadly.  I'm at a stage with the jumper where it would be so much easier to have fitting help.  I just need to buckle down and finish.  I also have a flurry of new project ideas in mind and should settle on one--a quick successful project is just what I need.

Instead I've been knitting, a lot.  This short sleeve sweater is almost done, it's waiting for buttons then the other half of the button band.  It's knit with a combination of two cotton ribbon yarns, with stripes of reverse stockinette to add texture and show off the colors.  The ribbing pattern is one I made up.

I'm currently deadline test knitting a stocking, very hush hush ;)

I also made a ruffle silk/mohair scarf and am finishing a pair of socks, both for my mom.  The scarf is almost embarrassingly easy--made with Rowan Kidsilk Creation and crocheted following the instructions on the ball band.  Rowan has videos showing both knit and crochet versions.

An early Mother's Day gift


  1. What a beautiful scarf! It looks both warm and light as air at the same time.

    1. Thank you! It was almost embarassingly easy, but very rewarding and fun.


I adore comments! Thanks for taking the time :)
