Spring is coming!

It feels like spring is coming!   Snow is melting... a bit... and I know there will be more snow coming,  but I can feel the warmth in the sun.   The sky is a wonderful true blue,  and coincidentally,  matches the blues in the River Shannon Shawl I am working on.  This  is a colour block version,  using up partial skeins of fingering wool I have.

I have been busy getting the shawl knit up so I can get a FO picture of it for the pattern.  A lovely lady in Germany found me on Ravelry and is helping test and fix up the written pattern.  The internet is a wonderful way to meet people!  I have learned more about pattern writing in the last 24 hours than I ever imagined.  I am thankful.

With luck and my ability to  get things done,  I will have an official pattern testing thread going at Ravelry in the next day or so.  I am excited.

I took the knitting outside to photograph in the natural light,  and was soon distracted by the drip drip dripping of melting snow.   What a wonderful thing it is to stop and look around at the visible signs of spring! Snow and ice melting will soon mean  ( and I know,  soon means  months away still... ) the grass will green up again.

I've been reading lots about crystals and their healing powers in The Crystal Bible, by Judy Hall.  I've had this book for years and every now and then pull it out to look up the name or properties of a crystal.   Its beautiful.

I am joining Ginny in the Yarn along  and    also the bloghop at  Tilly's  Nest.     

Enjoy your day!
