Happy Spring!!!

Happy Vernal Equinox to All! I have sprouts!
My heirloom tomatoes, they came up yesterday.
I have new fibre!
That's some Soya Cotton DK from Sublime Yarns. It's really soft and it's 50% soy, 50% cotton and supplied by Nature Boy. I finally got around to using my Valentine's gift card. It's a nice rich shade of indigo and I believe I will be designing a sweater, maybe a cardigan, and already know the name but I don't have the "picture" of the sweater yet in my head. I hope to dream it up soon.

Speaking of dreams...I got the latest Vogue Knitting in the mail yesterday and want to make this: Now I need a dress like I need a hole in my head. I have right now upstairs three white dresses, three green, three blue, two gray, three black, one bright orange, one red, one brown and more shoved in the back of my closet in some plastic storage bags. What, you've never really seen me in a dress? I don't know why but I buy dresses on sale all the time and don't wear them. Well let it be known once it warms up this is to be the Year of the Dress. I will be sporting dresses every day, gardening in them, walking to the store in them, knitting in them. It will be quite a sight indeed!

I finally started the front of the Chemise last night. I am really anxious of late because Nature Boy's family is coming this weekend. If that's not enough to be anxious about, my family is coming on Easter Sunday to meet Nature Boy's family for the first time. We have been together about 15 years now and this is the first time they have met. I guess that's what happens when you refuse to get hitched! Of course we are cooking dinner too. So this vegan pagan will be cooking a ham and listening to stories of the resurrection of Christ whilst watching Ben Hur with lots of parental units. My plan? To keep my wine glass halfway to completely full at all times. If I never do post again, you all will know I met an untimely death at some point this weekend. Which may not be all bad after all...
