Finally the Spring Sweaters are blocking to dry, and are awaiting my nieces!   (Emma is not drying, nor awaiting, but just is.)

Knit from cotton-linen blend, these tees are from my Calidez pullover design (with short sleeves and ‘summer neckline’ options (details on Ravelry here & here)

I’ve made a couple of monogrammed labels embroidered rather wonkily on pieces of old silk ties I collect.

Next week is Spring break, and I am meeting my nieces in Calistoga, and will bring back gobs of spectacular photos of them modeling these Spring Sweaters I am sure.

But for now, Emma and I are just hanging out.

Everything in its place, and life is good.

Upcoming

For the Vernal Equinox Project, lovely varigated wool skeins in my nieces’ favorite colors…

Just to clue you in, as of last Vernal Equinox 2010, I have made myself a challenge to knit each of my two nieces a sweater (or vest) on both the Vernal Equinox, and the Autumnal Equinox. So far, I am on schedule.
