Pretty Things: Spring Edition


Ah spring! The season of renewal and rebirth. It' is only appropriate I start blogging again now. A bit of personal time was necessary to wrap up some things. I am a bit of ashamed to admit that I lost my blogging mojo for a while. Not that I have regained all the desire or wit to continue my past shenanigans. Nevertheless, like the rest of the things, I am putting back together piece by piece, I'll try my hardest to rekindle this old flame of mine. Until then, enjoy these pretty blooms from my short lived windowsill garden. They remind me of my mom, who is an avid gardener. Too bad, she never plants any flowers but claims they make the ultimate gift. This is for you mom, who nurtured me to be the romantic, and lover of everything pretty.

Yarn Haul: Lion's Pride® Woolspun®

Every year about this time, I make the Guy a hat. You can say it's one of our holiday traditions. The fun part is- I ask the guy to pick up some yarn of his choice, and then I try to come up with a suitable pattern/design with them. The process can be a bit challenging but very worthwhile. It gives me just the right amount of kick in the pants to try out new techniques and learn new stitches.

Yarn Haul: Lion Brand Woolspun

This year Z picked up these two yarns from Michaels. I was quite surprised with his choice cause he's not really a red person. The yarns are Lion's Pride® Woolspun® (from Lion Brand) in Cranberry and Charcoal. The color combination is quite festive! Now all I have to do is come up with a fun pattern. Check back soon to see what I make with them.
