Very simple, two background colors and two stamps. But it just says spring to me. When yarn crafting in spring, I spin lighter colors into thinner yarns, I gravitate towards lace patterns in both knit and crochet, and I generally only work with light or bright colors. I wound off one of those skeins of yarn I got at the Homespun Yarn Party this year. Guess which one?
The color's a little washed out in this picture, but it's Downy Oshun, Hon! Baltimorean beachy glory. I've started a crochet project with it, but I don't like how it's coming out so I might frog it and start over. It just needs to be a light, lacy triangle scarf or shawlette. The only trouble is that it's wool. That's my other spring thing. I'd love to be working with cotton or silk. Unfortunately, all my favorite yarns in my favorite weights and colors turn out to be wool or some other warm fiber. Oh well. Air conditioning generally requires a warmer layer, so it'll do.
I wish I had more to show you. This spring has been a little busy:
(Okay, I know, I'm a showoff. But isn't he cute?)
Plus, having moved, my ability to do paper and mixed media art has declined. See, Mom and I share supplies, or at least we always did when I lived at home. Now that Mr. Pocket and I are on our own, I haven't built up enough supplies in my new home to really feel like I can do much yet. As I acquire more, I'll be able to put things together, but now pickings are still slim. On top of that, I haven't felt the knit or crochet mojo as much, so that's not happening. I definitely feel the need to create, though, so hopefully I'll build up more supplies or be able to spend some time at my parents' house enough to do some work. I did house-sit for my parents one night last week, and this is what I came home with:
