Spring has definitely arrived. The streets are billowing with cherry blossom and the garden is returning to life. Everything looks new and fresh. The young leaves are the lightest, brightest shades of lime green and chartreuse. The sun is shining and all is well with the world. The sunshine has done wonders for my energy levels. I can almost feel myself waking up, just like the leaves and the flowers. The other day I saw this Robin Williams quote on Pinterest: “Spring is nature’s way of saying: let’s party!” It summons exactly how I feel about this season. There is no place I’d rather be in the springtime then right here.

I am also knitting with a renewed energy and have no less than three sweaters on my needles:

  • Hélène: a lovely and airy design by Veronik Avery, which I have all but finished. The only things left to do are seaming the front and the back piece together and then finishing the neckband. I may well have to block it ‘à mort’ as I fear it has turned out a wee bit shorter than I hoped for. We’ll see.
  • Wolf River: not exactly a spring sweater, but I couldn’t help myself, had to cast it on.
  • Liv Light: as soon as I saw NapaGal’s version, I knew I’d better frog my Keel and cast-on this lovely spring cardigan. The design is straightforward and the lines are clean. It is flying off my needles and I’m really happy with how it’s shaping up.

For all three sweaters I am using yarn that I had in my stash or recovered from another project, so I’m feeling quite virtuous.

I wish you all a very happy weekend, hopefully with some sunshine to enjoy! Me, I’m going back to the garden and my knitting.

  1. How beautiful this all looks!!! Both the garden and the knitting, so yes, let’s go knitting in the garden! I think I told you before, but the pictures of your garden look they could almost have been taken in mine :-) Same hedges, same bux :-) Have a very nice and relaxing weekend!

    • A very satisfying knit! The lace section is easy to remember and totally addictive. Plus, knit on 5.5 mm needles, it is also a very fast knit.
      Thanks for stopping by, Inês! Have a lovely weekend!
