It is definately Spring – the Japanese Cherry Grove at the base of the hill is in full bloom! This the be-all end-all sign of Spring for me. It is possibly the most beautiful thing of the season for me. I would like to go to Japan one day to experience the Cherry Blossom Festivals, until then I will enjoy the trees here and carry my new bag to experience all I can of Blossom Time.
I’ve even done some Spring cleaning, found a couple of books and magazines that I had been looking for and made my husband happy by remembering to tidy what I had said I would tidy! The intentions are always good but the follow through sometimes fades!
The new spring project is coming along nicely – I am not usually a fan of cotton, I find hard on my hands to knit. The Pima Lino is a very fine, soft lace weight and it is looking great! The colour is vivid purple and will look great with most of my summer clothing. I am seeing a waterfall style vest with a simple scalloped edge. I’m trying to stay focused on the project at hand – I want to wear this one, but there are a few other things waiting to be explored. What are you planning for summer wearing?
