Spring Finally Here?

I hate to say it out loud.....We've had a month of bad weather (snow a couple of days ago...in Seattle!) and a month of illness. Today was in the 60s, mild and just a perfect day all around.

My goal was to spend a little time in the garden. I got my roses pruned, finally, and a little weeding done. Luckily I did a good job of putting my dahlia/vegetable garden to bed for the winter, and it's not looking too shabby. I weeded around the garlic that's starting to sprout, then mulched with some of the straw from under the rabbit cage. Good organic fertilizer, that. Growing garlic is really easy and we love having all that fresh garlic to enjoy from midsummer on.

The raspberries got a little weeding and mulch, too. They're just starting to sprout some new leaves.


So are the roses.


You'll never guess what's doing the best already. Good thing our little rabbit likes dandelions.

In keeping with the spring theme, I sat outside for awhile and worked on my Asparagus Cable socks. This is an easy and fun pattern, available at The Loopy Ewe in the Wendy Knits section.



I'm using Numma Numma Toasty in the Pesto colorway. Can't wait to finish.

Oh, the green is making me so jealous! We are so far from that here.

And....guess what. No, I'm not knitting that sock, but I have that yarn. And I considered digging it up for this month's KAL! (But didn't, I'm saving it for something else for my daughter.)

The usual, twin! See you SOON!
