It's Spring, It's Spring

It is so beautiful out - and the air smells so good. The lilacs are starting to bloom. And I had a visitor this morning. Just here for a rest, but good to see anyway.

The flowers are periwinkle or myrtle - depending on your location. They are blooming on the variegated leafed version and the older dark green leaf version. I think the blooms on the first are larger. I think the swallowtail thinks so too.

On the knitting front, here's a photo of Unst Bridal Shawl from Heirloom Knitting. I couldn't think of a way to pull it out more but I've finished four of 19 repeats for the center square.

From that point, I'll pick up stitches all around and work the first set of borders. The final set is worked perpendicular to the outside edge. Hard to describe, but I'll show photos as I go.

No stitching work to show - I'm still unpacking and sorting my "junk room" and have purchased a 4-drawer file cabinet to keep the projects in. I have some colored expanding pocket folders to hold the projects. I think this will be the easiest way to track what I have and what I need to finish. It might get a bit scary before I'm done.

Final photo from about a week ago - the neighbor's Bradford Pear in full bloom. Sorry there is so much garage door.
