Spring is in the air ...

Today it definitely was :
spring was in the air.
(though there wasn't that much sunshine)

Our private bulb field !
These delicate crocuses fall over with a bit of rain or wind
but today they stood proud !

Sad to admit, but the snowdrops are already over.
Every late winter I long for them
and always too soon they are gone

So I picked a few
and made some drawings.
This is just a start :
I will work on them with water colour
and other techniques to keep them 
for a much longer time !

A new baby was born in my nephew's family
so I made my usual present
for that occasion

Welcome Fie !

There was more knitting these last two weeks :
the indigo blue shawl I made was a success
so I started another one
with homespun yarn daughter gave me
combined again with some fluffy
Rowan Kid Silk Haze Stripe.
(and while it was Stitch'nBitch-day today
I took it with me to Rotterdam)

(though it was a day late
it still was included in the good cause KAL donation !)

In my search for new knitting projects on Ravelry
I found something interesting.
Though I don't have the pattern for this Norwegian jacket (yet)
I had to give it a go
(on some smaller scale : mittens)

I frogged it already three times
and even now the size is too big ...
(must do some more tests)

And finally I received the (very) last felted piece
of the felting-exchange
(with one extra for the delay, ha, ha)

We hope to set a date for a meeting 
of all the felting-exchange members this summer.
It will be fun to see each other
ánd to see all the work.
