Spring - Time To Get Outside

Like much of the US, spring has arrived into the midwest disquised as summer.  Here in Indy, we've had high temperatures in the 80s for almost a week now.  The flowering trees and spring bulbs have erupted into bloom.  Birds are delirious and the air smells divine. 

What better time than to try out a new camera.  I've known for a while that I needed to upgrade my photographs.  After a fair amount of research, and finding a great deal at Costco, we opted for a Nikon D5100 with a couple of different lenses.  I'm on quite the learning curve, but very happy with performance so far. 

As far as knitting, I've been working on design submittals for next winters publications.  It's surreal to be working on winter designs when the weather is this beautiful, but that's how this business works.   And here's a sneak peak of the next brioche/mosaic cowl design - I think I'm going to call this one Archetype.


  1. Here in Ireland its the same, really mild and sunny, we have been out gardening this last month. Love the sneak peak at the new cowl, can't wait to see it finished.

    1. I've only been to Ireland once, but the beauty took my breath away. I'll bet spring there is glorious.
