Even though i said I would not cast-on more yarn until I finish as least one of my projects, I am closing in on the border of my Oaklet shawl, and that qualifies as almost done, which means it's pretty much time to start a new project.;) Plus, I've been really wanting to knit in pink. So yay! It's March after all. Time for new beginnings. Do you find you need something that says Spring on your needles about this time of year? I sure do.
The yarn is Leelanu Lady - Slipper, by Pigeon Roof Studios. A silky, high-twist sock yarn, and the pattern is Teasdale by Corrina Ferguson.
Today is suppose to be homeschool network day for us, but we are staying home and working here. My son didn't want to go today and I love that we have that choice. So we'll have a quiet day at home. We usually focus on math the most and then balance the other subjects. I'll make a scone recipe from the book I shared yesterday as well.
I was working on my quilt last evening when I saw this sunset outside the window. I grabbed my camera and got two photos, before it slipped so quickly past the horizon. I really think this might be the prettiest sunset I have ever seen. It was so beautiful. I see it as a gift.
The quilt is all stitched up but is too square, so I have to add another row of blocks at the bottom. It won't take too long, but you know that moment when you think you're about done, but no, there's more? hmm.
I do hope today is good for you my friends, and we do have Friday's arrival to look forward to:) Jeannine
