Spring Sprouts


Spring is in full swing here in Eugene. The flowering currants and Oregon Grape are blooming on our curb. The Hellebore (Lenten Rose) has been looking great for weeks. Seth has put in a bunch of lettuces. Saturday Market has started up again with it's piles of early carrots, garlic greens and salad mix. Spring rain is coming down. 


   It rained on our Spring Creek Elementary Spring Art show, but it didn't dampen our enthusiasm.

   I peeked in my knitting basket and discovered several small projects which have reached the cotyledon stage as well. With proper care they may develop into full fledged finished objects over time.  

   Noro 2 row 1x1 Rib scarf,

an attempt to make myself like sock yarn by doubling it up so I can knit on needles I can at least see (I love the effect of the different striping patterns together), 



and the Fiber Trends hedgehog pattern. Everyone who has done it swears this is right so far and will infact eventually become a hedgehog! Gotta have faith.

Happy Spring, everyone. May it come to you soon if it hasn't yet!
