Yesterday it was brought to my attention by more than a few people around me that all my chattering on about 'spring' was a bit laughable. Maybe not so reality-based. Perhaps not a true reflection of the layers of capilene-wool-down still required out there in the elements. What? You don't call 40 degrees spring-like weather?
Well....maybe I'm pushing spring just a little bit. But look! There really are peeks of green happening out there. It's still mostly white. But oh, those peeks of green - I do love them.
The bits of warm weather - and the thought of spring to come - was just what I had in mind as I finished up this knitting project for Miss Adelaide. The pattern is the Girls Cap Sleeved Spring Top (available for free here). I used a glorious skein of DK merino from Shivaya Naturals. Such a pleasure to knit and beautiful in the way the hand dyed color knit up, I think. (it's laying on a piece of oilcloth from Anna Maria's Good Folks fabric collection.)
Adelaide likes it too, she says. For now, it's for wearing on the inside. But soon. Soon we'll be out there in the spring weather and this will be just the thing to have on amidst all that green out there. Green!
