Spring! It's still two weeks until Daylight Savings Time begins, and three until spring officially begins, but it has consistently felt like spring for weeks. This post from Cliff Mass reassured me that I'm not crazy for feeling spring has begun well before the calendar says it has. Here in the Seattle area, we're just lucky to have more spring than anyone else in the country. I love these transitional times, where two season push up against each other. In some places there are only bare branches and dead leaves, while in others spring is in full bloom.
Naturally, now that the days are getting longer and warmer, I've finally found the time to start the sweater I promised Andy. I'm using this gorgeous pattern, with a thick, cozy wool yarn, and I'll probably finish it just in time for it to be far too warm to be worn. I guess the alternative is working on a heavy wool sweater through the heat of summer so it's finished just in time to be worn, and that sounds terrible. I'd definitely choose Andy overheating wearing the sweater over me overheating while making it!
