The First Step is Admitting I Have a Problem
The February project is done and gifted so I have the rest of the month to do as I wish which has made me drunk with the possibilities. I have proceeded to knit beautiful baby things for the new baby girl. I wanted to do a wee sweater and had a bunch of colorful superwash yarn left over from the Baby Shane blanket (which I realized I never posted a picture of or even shared any project details about. I shall rectify that!) so I thought I'd do another Baby Tulip.
I do not know why this pattern is so entertaining. It must be the change in color which reveals a really simple side to me. You know, the side that likes shiny objects and pretty rocks. Yup. I've been so entertained by this little sweater that weekend chores have kind of gotten "forgotten." But who needs clean clothes and groceries, right? I haven't been able to stop working on it and watched all the episodes of Downton Abbey while knitting it yesterday. My idea of heaven. If you don't have Netflix and can't stream the episodes, it looks like you can watch some episodes online for a little while.
We have had a gorgeous three-day weekend here in Oregon which has been needed. Springs are wet for us (are we officially Spring yet or still Winter?) and even I am ready for the rain to stop about now. I really need to win the lottery so I can spend time outdoors puttering around in the yard and cleaning out my garage. Looking out my window I can see buds starting on my rose bushes but I haven't pruned them yet so I may need to just cut this short and run outside to prune like crazy. I get a lot more roses when I prune.
That is, if I can stop knitting long enough to do anything else.
