Finally. Yesterday was snow-free. Beautiful blue sky. Comfortable temperature. The Colorado I know and love. Well, ok, I actually love the snow and all the fun things there are to do in it, but the last couple of months have been way too much of a good thing. I now have a major case of Spring Fever.
So, I went to the Denver Botanic Gardens.
Can you just imagine lounging on these slopes when they are grassy and green, wiggling your bare toes in the soft blades, sipping something cool and listening to the sweet sounds of a chamber ensemble?
I was going to post one of these images for my Saturday Sky. But, I couldn't choose just one. And anyway, now it's Sunday. But today is equally glorious. I hope you enjoyed the little stroll with me through the Gardens and the promise of Spring to come.
And speaking of Sky
I'm making good progress on the Simple Lace Shawl - at this point, all 367 stitches of it. It's been my travel project for the last few weeks. I am now beginning work on the lace border. Yay! I was afraid of lapsing into a garter stitch coma. The drape and subtle sheen of this Giada yarn is gorgeous.
And finally, a big thank you to my good friend Patti from Sweetgrass in Helena, Montana. She gifted me with this lovely skein of her own Montana Fibers in a hand-dyed Blue Faced Leicester. The colorway is Ocean. The wool is gorgeous and has a beautiful soft hand.There are about 375 yards and it looks like it will work up to about 5 sts to the inch. This might make another lovely Forest Canopy shoulder shawl. Any other ideas?
Happy Sunday - and Happy knitting to you!
