Why Helloooo Spring. So Nice of you to Join Us!

Spring is here and now I can reach deep into the back of my closet and pull out some of the things I finished just in time for the snow to fall last year. They got tossed around in the closet, and some almost near- forgotten, but it's nice to see them again.
Especially because it means that the warm weather is here.

I can feel it.

What is it? Roundabout Leaf Tank by Norah Gaughan from her book Knitting Nature.
What yarn? Kelly by Filtes King- sadly, it is no longer. It's a cotton/acrylic blend.
What needles? 5 mm
Get it? Hmmm??? The name? See the leafs? And the round-about ways of this tank? Man. It was so fun I want to relive this whole project.

Another day, another yarn.

The tank is knit in a big strip, starting at the bottom and going up around and around. I felt very much like I was being forced to think out of the knitted-tank-top-box and this is a good thing. We need a good knitting kick-in-the-pants every now and again.

Norah Gaughan gives good kicks.

And one more thing.

I don't think I have been this happy to see Spring in my entire life.

I hope you all had lovely long weekend with your knitting and/or amongst the flowers.
