Loose Ends


I finished my cowl earlier this week and have worn it twice.  It's lovely to have something new in the wardrobe.  Ravelry notes are here.  Also during the week I was lucky to receive a giveaway sponsored by Donna over at Knit1Spin2 blog.  I have to admit I love to receive gifts in the mail especially the 'yarny' kind.  Thank you Donna, you've made this knitter quite happy!!



Yesterday while getting dinner ready, Frodo was out back surveying his lands and barking.  I told him to be quiet and left the door ajar to be sure he listened to me.  I continued to peel potatoes and became lost in thought.  It must have been within 15 minutes when I thought it smelled like spring in the house.  The fresh air from the door being ajar did wonders to my mood and how the weather felt.  It looks like winter and feels like winter but you know what?

It is sounding and smelling like spring!  I hope you all have a lovely weekend :)

  4. I know smell of spring- we are probably 2 months behind you. Good dog Frodo patrols the area and holds down the fort...Lily & Luther do the same for us.
    Happy Firday.

  6. look at all those fun things in that package!!!! beautiful cowl-----sure could have used a cowl this morning (as I dashed---once again---to yoga!!!); it's been lightly snowing all morning. Won't last---not even covering the grass (which is my measurement of a 'real ' snowfall)---but it's pretty none the less!)

  13. I just found your cowl pattern again - I saved it ages ago & then it got lost in the shuffle. I think I'm going to plan one for early in the fall so I will have a new cowl to wear when the cold weather comes again late this year! xo

  15. I can't wait for spring! Our heating system just stopped working and it sure feels like winter in our house. But your words remind me that relief is around the corner - even if the heating guy doesn't know how to fix it, the sun will come to the rescue soon :)

  16. Beautiful cowl--is that your own pattern? I love the color you chose for it.

    There really is nothing nicer than receiving something lovely in the mail. : )

    I feel spring coming, too! And, oh, I hate to rush the seasons, but this year I can't wait.

  17. I love your cowl! We are getting a bit of early spring here too--it has actually been quite warm! There is nothing like that first fesh breeze...makes me want to camp out in the sun on a blanket and watch the clouds go by :)

  18. Your knitting is pure art....perfection. And I had the windows open the other day as well and forgot about it until I came back into the room and smelled the dewy earth smell and heard the birds calling to each other. Love. (Then it snowed almost 8 inches).....oh well. Here's to a midwest spring. XO
