First off, who doesn't like pictures of flowers in spring? A month ago the first crocuses bloomed, though it has also snowed a couple times. The daffodils are opening up to the newly arrived sun, and today I saw miniature Iris!
I did some (mental) work on the jumper. I measured myself side seam-to-side seam across the front and back hip, discovering that my back is 10cm wider. The jumper back is 4 or 5cm wider, so now I know what changes to make.
The project I'm really excited about, since I can work on it with strep or migraines or whatever (oh yeah, it's been an exciting month): a shawl pattern inspired by Estonian lace. It uses unusual lace knitting techniques and I'm knitting a new-to-me shape. Here's a beautiful example of modern lace inspired by tradition.
