Yarn Along: Spring is in the Air…

I’m sure you all will be glad to know that I finished both my little bunnies in time for Easter morning.  I was pretty happy with how they turned out and the boys thought they were cute, so it’s all good.  I took a picture of the bunnies next to the felted hearts I made for them for Valentine’s Day and the felted baskets I made for them a few years ago from the same yarns.

They looked pretty cute in the baskets too.

Yay Spring!  Where I live we often have to wait until June for any consistent Spring-like weather.  I know, I know, Spring most places isn’t consistent; that’s part of what makes it Spring.  However, nothing says NOT Spring like snow and wind, which is often what we get in April and May around here.  This week though we are getting a huge treat!  It’s supposed to be in the 60s for as far as the eye can see and even get up to low 70s by the end of the week.  I am walking on a cloud today and keep checking my weather app just to see those numbers again.  I’m soooo excited.

So, this week I’m all about Spring for my yarn along with Ginny.  I’m continuing on with my never-ending Koigu/Churchmouse Linen Scarf, but not at such an impressive pace that it’s worth posting pictures yet.  My speed on that project isn’t likely to pick up either because here’s the bit of Spring that I’m wanting to pick up and knit!

Those colors are just begging to be made into something lovely for this warmer weather.  Any thoughts?  I’m often stymied by what to make with yarns that are a mix of colors.  I can never visualize what it will look like when it’s knit up.  Help?  Any suggestions?  I’m going to try to continue knitting my scarf and hold off starting anything with this yarn until next week with the promise to myself that my comments will be filled with wonderful ideas worth waiting for!

The pressure is on.  Knitters unite (and leave me wonderful suggestions!).
