Well, it officially feels likes spring… for about four days. Then it’ll be right back to freezing cold again (and by freezing I mean base temperatures of -4). My knitting seems to have taken a hint anyway, as I have added a little green to it.
It’s Daisy’s Springtime Cardigan, a present for her first birthday. Aka the Quick Knit Baby Shrug (By Natalie Haban). I’m using Knit Picks Brava (Worsted Weight, 100% Acrylic in the Mint Colorway). It’s super soft and I’m loving the way it’s knitting up but, I’m not sure whether it needs to be a little bit bigger. If not, I can just start in on the sleeves. I am planning to embroider a few little flowers on it as well.
I also bought some roving from Knit Picks, Wool of the Andes Roving in the Dill Heather Colorway. I spun up 27 yards today and am planning on using it as a demonstration in my public speaking class. The other only other real ‘WIP’ I have right now is my stash.
I did a major destash at the beginning of this week. I sold for skeins of Berroco Weekend DK, traded two skeins of Lamb’s Pride that I dyed, and I am giving the rest away to goodwill. I only kept stuff that really spoke to me. Now, I just have to organize my Ravelry Stash. I’m accounting for the odds and ends, which is the hardest part. Next I plan on accounting for all of my needles.
That’s about it. With it being spring break one would think I would have more knitting time but, all I mostly seem to be doing is homework. I’m not even trying to get ahead. I had a lot of stuff assigned to work on over break.
Hope you’re all enjoying some spring weather!
