The pattern was written by Ysolda Teague. I'm using a basic Knit Picks Swish DK in persimmon and a puny size 3 needle. It has been a turbulent relationship but I think we've come to an understanding. She looks good with a nice pair of jeans.
We're still wearing wool sweaters and jeans in Minnesota but today I wore a short sleeve shirt underneath. Sadly, I even wore my floor to ceiling down quilted ugly brown coat to work today. Tomorrow is supposed to be a miraculous 58 degrees. I'm skeptical. We have an outdoor field trip scheduled and I'll be damned if I will spend another two minutes standing around watching my own breath freeze in the air.
Spring has been keeping us busy. The garden is completely untouched. Too cold. Now it's too wet. Wah wah wah.
Stella has grown into a pretty little lady. She is quite the swimmer and retrieves like a mo-fo. Seriously. We've been smacking tennis balls into the woods and after zigzagging back and forth for 5 minutes, she comes back with the darn thing.
Easter came and went. It was lovely.
We rented a little teeny tiny cabin with the kiddos and had a sweet little vacation in the woods. Wait. Don't we live in the woods already? I guess we do. Hmmm. I'll have to think about that a bit.
