We had such great weather this past weekend! The sun was bright and the temperature was in the 60's. Hooray! One of my favorite firsts of the year is hanging out clothes on the line. Especially our sheets. I don't think there is a better smell than climbing into bed and smelling the great outdoors! I also had some of my work blouses hanging out so I can be reminded of the glorious open air. If you have never hung sheets or clothes out to dry in the fresh air I urge you to try it!
I was able to get some outdoor chores started. I worked on cleaning up the garden. Look what I found as a spring surprise. These are miniature irises. I can't remember the name. My friend Susi planted these for me one year as a birthday gift. I love gifts like that! Aren't they cute? I was just checking on the garden on Wednesday. By Saturday the mini irises were blooming.
On the knitting front I finished another Amanda Hat. I tried to finish it for Malabrigo March Maddness. I didn't give myself much of a chance considering I cast on for this project on March 29! Oh well, I got it done. I love the colors. I used the leftover half skein from my DD's Tudora. The yarn is Malabrigo and the color is Emerald Blue. Come in for a closer look.....
Look at the stitch definition. Pretty cool right? This pattern is on my list for Christmas gifts. I know. Christmas is months away. My problem is that by the time I think of making a gift for Christmas it's too late. I'm trying to plan ahead.
On the horse name game still no name. I have several that I am considering. I like Lady, Elizabeth, Cashmere and I could go on. Her and I are getting to know each other so I'm sure the name will hit me suddenly. This is my sweetie checking out the neighbors horses.
