springling

As promised, a peek at the starting of my newest project:

Yes, just the swatch so far, but even that is pretty exciting in my current knitting world. After spending the last 3 months immersed in dark red 4-ply soft (which, by the way, I still love!), it’s nice to have an alternate project that’s a little brighter. This cheerful blue/yellow/white combo makes me smile every time I look at it and is the perfect accompaniment to the beautiful spring weather we’re having around here. The temperatures are up and the flowers are blooming, making me dream of lightweight, ethereal knits, pastels and brights, loose gauges and lacy stitches. This particular project is slated to be baby sized, so it should go quickly, leaving plenty of time to dream up a warm weather project or two for me. In the meantime, what are you planning on knitting up for spring?
