Spring needs to start now

It’s April 8th and the weather forecast is snow.  6-8 inches of snow.  This is not good for so many reasons.

Everyone I know is very ready for spring.

I am truly sorry that I have not blogged in a long while.  Did I tell you that I am working at a yarn store?  I do have fulltime employment.  I am working at the yarn store for fun.  Oh, yeah, and the yarn.  Here’s a sample:

spring colors

And more yarn.

Of course, I’m buying [bought] a variety of these luscious gems.  I get the awesome opportunity of getting first dibs on so many lovely, luscious, fabulous yarns.  My yarn stash has grown exponentially since my employment at the yarn store.

I am so busy.  I need time to knit.  I had a panic moment the other day while in my sewing knitting room.  I am thinking that I may not have enough time days to knit everything that I want to knit.

And more yarn is arriving in the mail! I almost forgot I had ordered the yarn.  But, not really.  I did forget what I was planning to knit with the new yarn, oh well, I’ll find something.  At last count I had 10,416 patterns saved in my library on Ravelry.  So, I have a few options.

I want to share some potential knitting projects.  I mean, these are not “potential”, more “probably”, it’s the “when” that is in question.

photo (4)  I am so excited about this sweater.  Besides being a super cute pattern, the yarn is Brooklyn Tweed! This is a wonderful yarn that was only available online until recently when The Yarnery in St Paul became a special distributor.  [And I live close to this LYS].

photo (2)  And look at this pile of delicious colors of Madelinetosh!  I’m planning on a very cool shrug with a design down the back and a few shawls.  The shawls will be soft and squishy fun to wrap around my neck.

So much yarn, many projects, all I need is time,a cozy chair, and no distractions.

A girl can dream, can’t she?
