What's big and green and waiting for yarn? The Sunshine Bag from Knit Picks that's what! I am feeling much better about my knitting drive now that I have started seeing patterns that I can't wait to knit up. This one appears to be a serious knitting project but that does not deter me from wanting to start it right away--as soon as the grassy green yarn gets here. I think I will leave the handles off of mine and make it a fold over clutch, but I will use bright turquoise for the lining and zipper as shown. Don't you just love summer colors?
The hot pink cowl is coming along. Linen stitch is not one of my favorites so the stitch pattern will be altered on the second cowl, which I plan to knit in gold, teal and brown variegated yarn.
Also big and green is our lawn right now! Winter has been anything but cold here in Texas and our grass got so long that it had to be mowed so we wouldn't lose a dog in it. We usually don't have to mow until around April. Macy and Max had small patches where they did their business and a strip they used as a path from the house to the squirrel tree. In addition, our trees in the front are sprouting buds.
I received a message yesterday from Journey North saying the hummingbirds are migrating north and we should put up feeders to sustain them after their long trek across the Gulf of Mexico. I just took down the feeder about a month ago. Are they confused? I certainly am! I guess winter is well and truly over before it began. Anyway, it will be good to see the little guys (and gals) again and fill their tummies with sweet juice to help them on their way.
Macy says, "Please feed the Hummies!"
Life is good!
