stitches in bloom

We had a busy weekend. Some knitting, lots of photography, a trip to the Rebuilding Center to look for cool stuff, out to brunch...it's amazing all that one can accomplish when they have a weekend off from work!

Look who came out of hiding? Lohengrin! It's about time she got back into the queue!

The Paul Atwell sock is coming along nicely...This sock is in Dashing Dachs 'Speckled Wildflowers'. I purchased the yarn from Woolgirl, but I'm not sure who else might carry it.

Hmmm...it looks like there is a new sock in the bunch!

What's a girl to do when she's been test knitting and hasn't made significant progress on existing projects for knitterly blog entries?

Yep...Quickly cast on a new sock to create variety! This one is Keukenhof by Anne Hanson in Miss Babs' 'Dahlia'.

Did you all remember to spring forward this weekend?

Wasn't that extra hour of light glorious on Sunday?! I'm loving it!

The finest qualities of our nature,
like the bloom on fruits,
can be preserved only by the most delicate handling.

Yesterday was so dark and gloomy we couldn't appreciate the extra light :-(

Your socks all look lovely!

Yes, I remembered but I still don't like it.

Forgot to set my clock forward (after many reminders to self), but managed to wake up in time to not be late for the day's packed slate of events! That as a close call...

Lovely lovely pix!
