Disappearing, Reappearing Act

I am my projects. I am the seasons. I disappear and reappear just as they do.

I have been daydreaming about lace and spring after last week’s fling with 80° F temperatures.

my premiere lace cardi, reappeared – now with the re-beginning of sleeves.

Then the snow and ice reappeared, and I reconsidered the warmth of a soft wool scarf.

Luckily, babies need nice warm clothes regardless of the season.

the first sleeve – done!
because everyone wants to see floats

One of my goals for this week: collect yarn for destashing.

    Fun! That color work is beautiful!

    We had nice weather for a few days too, and now back to the snow. Yuck!

    yeah, the weather lately has been a little schizophrenic, no? i’d like for it to pick a season and stick with it! :)

    I love floats. Don’t they make you feel like the best knitter on the face of the planet? Like you can work some serious magic – the sleeve looks great. :)

    I am jealous of the warmth you had. We are crazy insane cold, still. It was zero this morning. Grrrrr.

    Lovely! I really think that baby sweater is going to be fantastic – I hope the recipient likes it. The cardi is also very nice, a great color. What yarn are you using? Do you have a link to the pattern?

    love this post – totally clever, and very true. I’ve done the same this past week :-)
    that purple lace cardi is divine
