Spring is in the air

Today was a gorgeous day in Colorado. Joe and I took advantage of the good weather to take the B&B team on a looooong walk. I'm thinking Buster enjoyed himself:

I also started a new project in Handmaiden Sea Silk in this lovely warm coppery colour. I'd bought the Sea Silk with the intent of making the Montego Bay Scarf. But after starting twice and ripping it out (I simply didn't enjoy knitting on it) I decided to go with a tried and tested favourite of the mine -- the Shetland Triangle from Interweave's Wrap Style. I'm on a mission to complete this one quickly... more on that later.

I also received my latest Spring Season's mailing from Sundara -- it's a silk merino blend in shade Robin's Egg. If you've been reading my blog recently you know I've got quite the thing for this colour right now. Oooh what to make with this yummy skein of yarn?

Love the coppery Shetland triangle! Wrap Style is one book mising from my collection so may have to hit Amazon.

I think Buster is smiling :D

Your Shetland Triangle will be gorgeous in that color! That Sundara yarn is so pretty!!

It's a gorgeous day here in Texas too - 88 degrees today!
I just added Thuja to my queue on Ravelry, thought I might make them for hubby. Yours look great, and so long as your man is happy ;-)
Thanks for letting me browse by.

Love your shetland! Let me know what you're going to knit with the gorgeous Sundara yarn. I got a skein in the autumn colorway and don't know what I can knit with it. I'm afraid I want have enough for anything with only a 400 yard skein.

Buster's expression reminds me of Abby's when we are out walking.

Your shawl is beautiful. So is that blue yarn. I've just come from a site where she was complaining that the fall colors weren't really fall like. Yours are positively spring!

Buster looks very happy. The Shetland Triangle is going to be amazing in that color. LOVE IT!

Hmm, too bad about the Montego Bag scarf, but the Shetland Triangle looks gorgeous in that yarn! Good luck on getting it done in time!
