I guess I should not be so surprised as the signs of Spring beginning are all around me---crocus's popping up all over, the earliest of all the flowers where I live, birds chirping in the mornings, and last night, the frogs were out in the wetlands making all kinds of noise! I know that we are now 2/3 of the way through our YOP year, and while I don't think I am 2/3 done with my project list, I have made a good dent in it.
Rosie's dress, is almost done! Here you see it in my usual photography spot--the windowsill where I have the best natural light, always.
All I need to do is stitch up the side seams and get some buttons. I have never seamed a garment before, but I watched a very thorough tutorial on the mattress stitch and think I will be able to do it.
I have also been working on my Noble Cowl, but as usual, the purple color of the yarn did not photograph very accurately--
I am thinking I am going to have to put the cowl on hold for a bit as I want to knit a couple of these adorable little bunnies for the Grandies for Easter.
I am hoping to knit a little dress for each of them with the sock yarn showed in the picture--I am just not sure what pattern to use for that and I am not sure how big these bunnies will actually turn out. I had to search high and low on the Lion Brand site for this actual pattern as it had been cached--but my persistence paid off. I ordered my yarn from Knit Picks--a first for me and it actually feels wonderful. The tan yarn is called CotLin and is part cotton and part linen. If I get these finished they will count towards my goal of knitting my first ever toys.
Well, dear readers, I leave you with this beautiful photo of some spring I found in my neighborhood....
