April showers

This weekend while I was riding my bike around town, I got so warm I had to take off my light jacket. I was so warm that the breeze felt good.

Today…. see the green leaves on that tree? They only just came out last week. And see that snow on the sidewalk, the cars, and the tree in the background? That only arrived today. We haven’t seen snow since early March.

Who knows what tomorrow’s weather will bring!


to knit, or not to knit …

Another wonderful and elegant design from brooklyntweed — He calls it the Juneberry triangle. I even love the name! This one is going to make my resolution to only knit from my stash a very, very difficult resolution to keep.

I already have a slightly variegated indigo lace-weight silk that I have put aside to use for this…

… the Aeolian Shawl from Knitty.

Meanwhile, I’ve got Cachou (bless you!) on the go in a soy silk. I know I’m going to love it when it’s done.

It looks like it’ll be one of those grab-it-as-you-run-out-the-door kind of sweaters, a favourite that’ll go anywhere anytime. But all that seed-stitch! It’s a great pattern but oh so tedious.

If the weather man wasn’t calling for snow tonight (!?), I would likely be switching from cardigan to lacy shawl right now …
