Primavera

Spring comes early in Arizona. The grass is greening up. The apricot trees are blooming. The grapefruit are sweet as can be. And I've celebrated by starting a very springy sock indeed.

The pattern, appropriately, is called 'Primavera.' Yarn is Fleece Artist Merino Sock in 'Rainforest.' It seems so yummy and fresh to me, and it's knitting up speedily.

I have to admit, though, that the warm weather makes me realize how much I missed having a cold and bracing Vermont winter. As long as my body thought it was autumn (which is what an Arizona winter feels like), it didn't miss winter. But now that we're headlong into spring, I really feel like I've skipped a season.

And soon it will be too hot for socks! So I'd better back to my needles ....

OH I touched that yarn tonight and it was fabulous. Thanks for sharing it and it does look like Spring........something that happens in very few places in February.

Want to switch places? It's miserably cold here in NY (17 degrees when I woke up). :(

That is so pretty! I love the colors and such a neat pattern.
And I'll take some of that Spring too! It's very windy and cold here in Philly and we're expecting snow showers tonight.

well it will probably still be plenty bracing if your able come out to Boston in a couple weeks, so maybe you'll have just enough cold to appreciate satisfied your blooming apricots and citrus groves.
