Spring + Flowering Shrubs + Trees = Pollen! aaaacchhhhuuuuu

I've been knitting - but not much.  I'm trying to finish up the back on the sweater I started for the wedding.  I have so many projects started I wonder which one will be done first. I'm a great starter and terrible at finishing.
I don't really have anything new to show so I'm going to hunt through my pictures and stick one a few in here so you'll have something to look at.  Until next time, enjoy the sunshine, I hope the pollen isn't getting to you! I'll be sneezing and blowing my nose and hoping it ends soon so I can look down to knit without....................well, you know.
Happy Knitting!

Spring Has Sprung!

This is The Briar Rose Wrap by Melanie Gibbons, aka Pink Lemon. I've done several of her patterns and love them. This is Louisa Harding Cashmere DK in the prettiest lavender. Soft and squishy!

Spring Fling, free at Knitty. This has been in my favorites for awhile and I thought it was a good choice for the festivities at the wedding but even in 100% cotton I don't think it'll work. It is VERY hot in Alabama in August! I might just buy one of the little lacy sweater thingy's (I wouldn't call them sweaters, but not a bolero either, so whatever it is). I've been told I have to wear a sundress, so MUST have something to cover..................... 

First sleeve is all done.  I did a sleeve first so I could get the pattern in my head so I wouldn't have to dig out the pattern when I have 10 minutes to work on it. It's very easy once you get the pattern figured out.

 My grandson spent the day with his Grandfather last fall and he planted 150 daffodil bulbs.  They are coming up now and are so beautiful! I love daffodils and can remember going to my Grandmother's each spring and cleaning the branches and such that had fallen into her garden of daffodils. So many memories. Now I have daffodils. Thanks Jay!

Happy Knitting!
