Spring is here and tulips and daffodils are beginning to peek out and pop up. I love the arrival of Spring!

I don't quite know what it is about Spring, but it is always inspiring to me. Maybe it's all of the color that begins it's vibrant display. Maybe it's all of the new life that begins springing up everywhere. Whatever it is, fills me with joy, awe and appreciation and with the desire to create and make things new and fresh.

Lately, I'm feeling the urge to paint and create some multi media projects. I've spent the winter learning to knit and I'm still working on my socks. I'm on the home stretch now and glad because I can feel my heart getting ready to express something new. I've got to go and get me some new colors of paint and some fresh canvases. I'm also looking forward to planting some flowers and plants and a small vegetable garden in my backyard. 

Mmmm. I can almost taste all those luscious fruits and vegetables now.

I really don't care for socks. I prefer flip flops. OK, I love flip flops and probably wouldn't wear anything else if I didn't have to. But, since moving to the Pacific Northwest from Southern California, I have begun to...well, need socks. I just took up knitting and absolutely love it, so I decided to learn to knit socks.

So I got me this nice ball of rich, forest green Ultra Alpaca Fine yarn by Berroco. It's so soft with deep undertones like the trees outside. And here's where I'm at so far...


...halfway done with the cuff.
