Spring’s finally sprung here in the mid-Atlantic.  It was a long time coming, but that was fine by me since it meant I could wear wool longer than usual!  With the new beginnings of spring, I decided it was finally time to start a blog, something I’ve long wanted to do, to document and share my love of knitting and all things fiber and record some of my favorite recipes (sustenance — ha, see what I did there!)

Spring tulips – how gorgeous is that pink? 

So let’s dive in, shall we?  Since it was one of the first properly nice weekends here, I spent Sunday afternoon at a lovely nearby tulip garden.  We have a picnic there every year, and the flowers this year didn’t disappoint.

We camped out beside these lovely lavender tulips all afternoon — with the sun shining on them, they looked almost translucent!

I spent most of the afternoon knitting and people/dog watching — on a sunny Sunday, the tulip garden provided plenty of material!

May Cardigan in progress

I’ve been hard at work on Qunice’s May cardigan, which I’ll write a fuller post about on Wednesday.  To sign off, I’ll leave one final photo of these happiest of yellow tulips —  happy Monday!
