Sunday Morning Knit Wit ~ Knitting for Spring

The calander says it is spring but someone forgot to tell Mother Nature that spring is here in Central NY.  Although it is sunny and I do hear some birds chirping here and there, we woke up to a cold 5 degrees again today. 

But I know that it will begin to feel like spring soon and I already have spring fever. And that doesn't mean my knitting needles are put away for the season.  In fact, I love knitting on the porch during the summer months, especially in the early morning. 

I'm also looking forward to seeing the daffidols, tulilps and other fabulous flowers.  And what better way to show these great flowers than in a unique vase?

My newest item available on etsy is a hand knit cabled vase cozy in soft pink.  This item comes with the vase and is ready to show your spring flowers.  (A perfect Mother's Day gift as well!)

I'm already working on a lovely lavender alpaca version with 'claw' cable design which is sure to be just as pretty. 

So don't put away your knitting needles and wool just because spring is here.  Keep knitting and make something wonderful for the season. 

What are some of your favorite spring projects?  I would love to hear and see what you are working on, so please leave a comment and link to a photo!

I'm not a knitter... yet! I'm sure some day I'll pick up the craft, but for now, I'm attached to my sewing machine! On warm days I bring it out to the deck and sew in the sunshine. Still very chilly here in Ct too, a toasty 18 degrees this morning! ;)
