Spring Somethings…

Yes, Spring has finally arrived, despite the brief snowy interludes which delayed all that lovely blossom and crushed a few darling daffodils… As you can see dear reader, I have been busy crocheting bunnnies for Easter tree decorations, along with replenishing my bunny basket…

Presently I am feeling rather spoilt, as I am crocheting one of Cherry Heart’s blankets (Granny Goes Large) in the most amazingingly bright, sunshine colours which is pure joy to work on…

Do have a little peek at her website ( http://www.cherryheart.co.uk ) if you haven’t already; it’s a real feast of colour for the eyes, plus she has some really inspiring patterns. Talking of blankets, I’ve also finished not one but two (yes, two!) of my scrappy blankies; one before Christmas for a darling daughter and one since which is just for me, me, me…

And yes, you’ve guessed it, I’ve started another one! Same as with sock knitting I’m afraid: there is always a new pair on my needles as soon as a pair is complete, like these little beauties, knitted using a Patons Smoothie dk yarn, all perfect in pastels…

…and a new pair just has to be cast on (obviously)…

Ooh, still addicted to cake yarns too and right now I am enjoying the so very, very soft Northern Lights dk cake yarn by James C. Brett which came with a free shawl pattern on the ball band…

On the subject of Northern Lights, remember those socks I was knitting using a King Cole Sprite dk yarn in shade Capri which I thought should have been called Aurora? Well here they are…

Don’t the colours remind you of the Northern Lights? Just love those socks.

After spotting lots of red, red scarves around this autumn/winter, I decided to knit one for myself in a King Cole chunky yarn…

So ready for next autumn/winter now! Talking of autumn, I had a little dabble at drawing some mushrooms or I should say ‘fun with fungi’ if you’ll pardon the pun…

Must most definitely sketch more this Easter. Well I shall wish you a happy-hoppy Easter my dear reader and leave you with a couple of springful photos to peruse but remember – keep crafting!
