Thinking of spring

Ahhh, spring in Florida. From February through April I can breathe! Kind of. Because this is the time of year in which open windows are better than air conditioning, this morning I dusted away a handful of pollen dust in my living room. Yes, yellow dust inside the house. I brush off the pollen from my car door handle every time I drive somewhere. No matter. My eyes may be itchy but the rest of me loves this time of year in St. Petersburg. My neighborhood's jasmine is starting to bloom so when I walk the dogs the air is fragrant. My plumeria (frangipani) is starting to grow leaves. The bouganvilla is flourishing.

For spring:

Cherry Tree Hill: Life's A Beach. For Jaywalkers.

Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock: Daffodil. For ?? (suggestions welcome)

In progress: Hederas. In Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock: Carol Green.

Yummy soap from Megan's Goodworks of Athens, Springtime Lure (Lavendar and Lime).

Jackson loves spring but finds "springing foward" a bit difficult. He is not a morning dog.

He looks like this after 10AM.

I love, love, LOVE, LL's Daffodil! I have the sock yarn in that color . . and I just got the Shepherd's Worsted (4 skeins) for a clapotis I will start after I finish my entrelac. Other than socks . . hmmm . . have you seen the ruckus over the Chevron Scarf? I wonder if you could pair that with 2 skeins of something else.

Love all of your signs (read: all the beautiful yarn!) of spring!! Spring has missed Philadelphia thus far, but here's hoping it'll make it to the northeast soon!

PS: Thanks for the soap shout-out!
