Spring has Sprung!

Happy Spring folks!

Finally it feels like things are starting to warm up a bit :) Yesterday I went and celebrated the fact that the sun had got his hat on by eating lunch in the park by these lovely daffodils!

Daffodils mean it's Spring, right?

So now I’m trying to decide what my next knitting project will be. I’m thinking something lacy again – I really enjoyed making the Nordic Lace Hat/Mitts and Cowl set and I have an itch to scratch! I’ve just treated myself to a couple of pairs of Knit Pro interchangeable needles – I’ve gone for the short ones just because they seemed to make me knit much faster when I tested one last week.  I can’t wait until they turn up!

So I don’ t really have much to say today so I’m just going to share some things I like that I found on Etsy, if that’s ok with you!

Gorgeous Handspun yarn from threewelshhens

This yarn was spun and dyed by threewelshhens in Cardiff, and uses a mixture of Merino, Blue Faced Leicester and golden Angelina fibre. I love the colour of this yarn!

Yellow Bird Notepad by Vert Cerise

A very cute handmade notepad by Vert Cerise in France, which I am bookmarking for myself to buy when I’ve got through the three I am currently scribbling in!

Scandinavian Cat Toys by Jane Foster

These cat toys are made from original 1970′s Scandinavian fabric by Jane Foster in Totnes, who designs screenprints and collects vintage fabrics.  (I love their little faces!)

That’s about it for today folks, have a good weekend! :)

    I love your blog – you write well and I especially like your photos – big colorful and very eye catching. I am going to try doing better on my blog about my photos. I really got inspired by yours!

      Thanks! I’ve been trying to improve my photography this year, I’m still not happy with it though! Thank you for the encouragement :)

    I adore vintage fabrics. These is something so bright an cheery about them. The yarn is gorgeous. I love the spring color! I would have to say my favorite item is the book. I love, love, love birds…especially canaries. I have one who’s singer is broken so maybe if I showed him this book he would get exited and sing for all the pretty ladies!!

    Lovely blog by the way! Found you on Ravelry.

      Thank you for your lovely comment! The book is so cute isn’t it?! I’m slowly building up a rather large etsy wishlist..
