Spring has Sprung
Wow! What a beautiful weekend! The only thing I don't like about the weather turning nice is the yard work. I grew up doing yard work almost every weekend. My parents live on this huge lot with tons of trees, so there was always something to do. I vowed I would have very little 'yard' when I finally bought a house. Jeremy wanted a large yard--so I told him the work is his.
I did help though. We put down almost 100 bags of mulch around the house. That's just around the house. We still have 4 islands and 3 trees to do. My Freelander smells like a cedar closet!
There was some knitting this weekend too:
I have to begin the sleeves and then start knitting them on to the sweater. I liked the 390 yards of yarn all in one ball--I didn't have to worry about changing yarns and having loose ends!!
Granted, I will have to put this one away as soon as it is done....I have been thinking about the next project. (Well, of course you knew that--you do it too!). After seeing Kate and Wendy making the Debbie Bliss Tennis Sweater from the new Vogue, I want to make it too. I really liked it in the magazine, but seeing the in-progress sweaters is really tempting me!! I'm not sure how much of an investment I want to make in the cotton cashmere yarn since it is pretty much a 3-4 month sweater. (meaning since it is mostly cotton, I'll only get about 3-4 months of Spring/Summer wear out of it) But if I knit it in wool like I am thinking, I won't be able to wear it until the fall. Maybe Knit Picks will come out with their summer yarns already so I can go 'cheap'!!!
