I’m so excited about Equinox. I love living in a part of the world that the seasons are so distinct yet blurred into one (Calgary is known for snowing at some insane point in the summer and for scorchers in the middle of winter thanks to menopausal Sister Chinook). Here’s the beauty of a typical never-know-what-you’ll-get-in-the-morning morning here on our street this weekend:
The branches are all sugar-iced in crystals looking like they’re just on the cusp of melting away – making you want to stay outside and inhale the melting icing to become one with the day. But… I had to go to the coffeeshop, get a latte in me and get knitting!
Et voila! I finally finished the back of the Electra Vest from Rowan #38: Man, I love this project. The striping is so relaxing and purdy to look at as it unfolds. I’m using Spring as a springboard to giddyup on this cuz I gots to get started on Edie’s Easter bunny surprize (I was going to present it to her on Easter Sunday. I’m gonna sneak out of bed and replace my body with the Easter bunny, ala Godfather horse head scene).
I also finished one of the legwarmers but I don’t want to expose you guys to its itchiness lest it affects your laptop monitors somehow. The itchy factor could be all in my head I suppose. I was psyching myself out for a sticking my foot in and enveloping my lower limb into a soft cloud of hot pink cotton candy experience. Perhaps I should have then purchase the recommended mohair/silk blend yarn as oppose to some mohair/can’t pronounce the chemical name blend? Stupid rookie knitter.
