This Designer Knitting Spring/Summer 2010 issue arrived in the mailbox today and I flopped down on the bed to page through it during a blissful moment of quiet in the house. It seemed a bit early for this type of skimpy fashion considering our current weather which you will understand as you read more below. All those airy holes don't have any appeal at the moment.
Aren't these light and airy? At the snail-paced slowness that summer is approaching I figure I would likely get two weeks to wear one of these sweaters before autumn arrives. If I am lucky.
These sweaters both look like a fun challenge, but what I really would like to make next is a sweater for Lilly.
I am slowly working on making some double pointed needle holders with handy slots that are labeled with sizes so you can just grab the ones you need and get knitting, no more need to find the right size by guesswork or measuring them. As long as they are in the right slot it is easy as pie.
Speaking of pies, here is one little cutie-pie outside making some snow pies. Now I am seriously starting to wonder if the snow will be completely gone by May? It is still knee-deep. I love winter, really, it is a nice time of year, but it seems to be hogging most of the year. I don't think it is fair to spring, summer and fall. Don't these seasons deserve some time too? I am partial to spring.
Old man winter has definitely outstayed his welcome this time.
Wishing you a most happy weekend and please send us some melting rays of beautiful sunshine!
