a lovely spring day !

Ahhhhh, what a lovely warm day it was today !

Mmmmmm ... in the garden we were
and even the chairs came down from upstairs !

Love to see the buds on this Black Elder growing bigger and bigger,
the Weeping Willow, at the other side of the water,
has a soft green haze.

Here my big magenta Geranium is getting started too, amazing colour !

Besides working a lot
to get rid of all the old dry remains of last year's growth
there was plenty of time to knit in the sun.

One of the side panels for the mitred little vest
I decided to colour my pattern so I won't end up
with two  identical squares next to each other,
this way it is a bit simpler
( although I cán change the colours if I like to ... )

Last Friday daughter came with a friend to felt some little slippers 

... wee baby boots ...

And because felting little boots is infectious :

( though it's a bit early in the year for strawberries )

  4. unseasonably warm here in Ontario, Canada, I am sure we will pay for this

  5. Oh my goodness those strawberry booties are so sweet. knitting in the sun sounds so relaxing - most of my knitting is done in the evenings, which is also very nice

  6. Przepyszne truskaweczki.
    Życzę szczęśliwego rozwiązania.

  7. Mmmmm, thanks for the hope of warm spring weather with new growth everywhere, Els. Your felting is so amazing. LOVE the booties! -sus
