March Makings…

Hello dearest reader! Yes, Spring has finally sprung (hurrah!) and it’s wonderful to spot all the darling daffodils and pretty primroses blooming in the big outdoors, as well as filling my home with the perfume of heavenly hyacinths. As you can see, I have been busy knitting myself a pair of March mittens to warm my chilly fingers on my wanderings. They were made from James C Brett’s ‘Lakeland’ chunky yarn, using a Sirdar knitting pattern. I’m just loving all the yarns with tonal shades in them at the moment, hence my choice of yarn for my latest jumper project: Stylecraft’s ‘Vintage Look’ life double knit yarn in a shade called ‘Autumn’…

If you’re wondering what happened to the khaki green cardigan I was knitting, well it has been completed (and looks lush) but is still awaiting the adornment of a few buttons which have yet to be purchased, so hopefully I will have a photo for you next time…

All these beautiful blooms bursting into life inspired me to start a little Spring scribbling on a floral theme. I added colour to this inky pattern with a few colouring pencils…

…but I’m not sure whether to leave this inky doodlings alone, or to add a splash of colour with watercolours…

Don’t flowers just fill your heart with joy, dear reader? Well I’m off to return to my jolly jumper project, so until next time – keep on crafting…
