Knitting in Spring

My pleasure in knitting seems to have been superseded by my passion for gardening these days. Come Fall, this will likely switch again!

I'm not a gardner so that doesn't interfere with my desire to knit...but the warmer weather usually does. I have decided this year to make sure I concetrate more on projects that fit the weather. I am knitting a cotton sweater for Cecilia. I actually enjoy knitting with cotton, but rarely do it. And I just went to a sheep and wool festival in NY. I've gone to this one the last 3 years and its such a wonderful little event. I bought some yarn while i was there, but chose a lace weight yarn, figuring that it would be good for the warmer weather.

I have great pictures from the sheep and wool festival...i'll post them here later!

Back after a NASTY computer virus knocked out my former computer. YUCK. I'm slow picking up the pieces.:( I have a used computer now which has everything slightly different from what I was used to.

I'd love to see your festival photos! Whenever you have a chance... I bet Cecilia has changed a ton!

No one seems to be knitting at all..or at least not talking about it. The list gets shorter and shorter. Sad

I started teaching myself to knit last year, I have two scarves on at the moment, neither of which are anywhere near being finished. I have very little desire to knit now because we moved and it doesn't get too cold where we live. I am not attempting to knit anything for bub either because it will be getting hot when bub arrives. Maybe for next winter though.

Autumn is a great time to knit! Wendy, you're not going to have tons of time with a new baby, but it should be satisfying if you make time for yourself. Smile

I've totally stalled! Things became busy around here and my needles haven't been touched in weeks. Booooooo. I really want to finish this sweater though, she would still get good use out of it. Its a cotton pullover and would be good in the evenings. Need to get hopping!

Things really stalled here too. Tomorrow I'm picking up a project pattern in another town. I ordered it a while back and never made time to collect it til now.
