Two more weeks have passed and nothing special happened. Until now I have been enjoying the last days of Winter. After the first gentle peeks of Spring during the first days of March, cold and damp weather has took over again to accompany the last days of Winter. I have been enjoying the last weeks of “hibernation” and did all the things I like during the darker seasons. I did a lot of knitting, went to bed early and enjoyed staying at my cozy home. Furthermore I started a new book in which I like to escape during my evenings (The Invisible Bridge by Julie Orringer). It’s the first time I’m actually reading on an everyday basis for a long time as I normally enjoy listening to audibooks while knitting or crocheting.
After finishing Hermiones Everyday Socks I started a new knitting project. Against all the other plans and considerations I’ve done during the last weeks I did something completely different. I neither cast on the Lucia Hoodie (but it’s still on my list and I’m thinking about doing it parallel?!) nor did I start my own pattern (but again this is still in the back of my head). In the end I did a compromise and cast on a project to get rid of some of my stash. My driftwood sweater left me some balls of blue baby alpaca yarn. Additional I bought 4 balls of fluffy mohair-silk and now I am working on this ( link leads you to ravelry) project. It’s a free pattern by garnstudio and I think this would be a nice coat for mild Spring days.
So nothing more to say. Tomorrow is the begining of Spring and hibernation time is definitely over. As the days are getting longer it’s time for some new projects and plans! Actually this makes me a bit sad as I just love Autumn and Winter and all that coziness that comes along with them (and I’m secretly looking forward to the end of summer). See you in six months, Autumn!
