March Into Spring

jenjoycedesign© March Into Spring KAL.JPG

I am participating in a little knit-along over in Ravelry, because I felt like knitting a few pairs of socks, especially since I gave away the whole stack of socks I knit last year for gifts. So now I’m starting a new stack!   Also doing the March Into Spring knit-along because it is March, and so near the Spring Equinox, so if you would like to join in, I’m having a pattern give-away and providing lots of March-ing music (bagpipes mostly)  over here.   Hope to see you there!

Also this is a Yarn Tasting which coincidentally goes with the whole marching & bagpipes theme having “Northumbria” in the title ~  Miss Babs Northumbria Fingering yarn:  It is hand-dyed 100% Blue-Faced Leicester wool, in colorway “adobe”.  Springy, elastic, sturdy,  just all around perfect for socks, with amazingly beautiful variegation from the hand-dying.  Incidentally, this skein was a gift to me after the wildfire,  along with another of the same in colorway of “beach glass” ( thank you so very much Taddy ~xx )  Naturally I am providing music accompaniment of the small Northumbrian Pipes to go with the Northumbria yarn, and I hope you enjoy every bit as I do . . .

  1. Oh Jen! That’s looking so inviting! Gorgeous colors (both yarn and dishes)!
    Lovely greetings (from a lazy chilling friend, sitting by the warming fireplace in Denmark), Petra

    • Petra, you’ve landed, and sitting by a fireplace sounds utterly dreamy.
      Oh, hey, check out the post again, I added some lovely Northumbrian Small Pipes… maybe might make your evening perfect?

      • Lovely! Indeed!
        We´re enjoying listening to music. Thanks for sharing.
        It’s so unbelievable quiet and dark here – biggest contrast to the normal citylife.
        (You must be used to it, at the place you are living?)
        We are getting into deep relaxation (except when I am checking out the wonderful yarn stores – f.e. Isager or Holst – or the best thrift stores ever – lol)

        • Right ! The best thrift stores ever, because its easy perhaps to find things knit up in Isager & Holst yarns!!! Yes, in the rural places its so dark when the moon is new, but so bright also when its full. I think most of all the sounds of nature predominant is the magic…. hmm… on the Danish coast… waves? Birds? Wind! Don’t forget to have a glass of wine for me! 🙂 xx
