today the little birdies woke me up, chirping, singing pickpickpick, pickpickpick…


Ms. Donna, from Knit One, Purl Too

CONGRATULATIONS! You are the new owner of some pretty pretty yarn and a hard copy Ariann Pattern!

THANK YOU! to all who participated and because there seem to be a lot of you with Spring Fever, I picked 3 more people to get a hard copy of Ariann –

Lynda from Knit Together

Gail R

Cheryl C

Thanks again to everyone who dropped by :)

This, but of course, has NOT cured my Spring Fever but made it Bigger than ever! Over the weekend I had to pick up the needles to get started with some Magnificent COLOR! I’ve had this yarn it seems forever. It was from One Fine Yarn – 3 cones of Crystal Palace “Georgia”.


What’s incredible about this is that the saturation level of the color just is indescribable! This is becoming a lacy little number called L-O-L-A Lola…

  Monday Morning Mirth  


What can I say? This girl needs some music and this is the jukebox of a man called SuperFrenchie. J’adore Superfrenchie!!!

There is POP! TRAD! And towards the end, even some fab Zydeco, like Clifton Chenier, Sleepy La Beef & Zachary Richard!

I am rushing towards the IRS finish line like a madwoman but HEY! Even procrastinators need some cool music to soothe the impoverished (and soon to be flattened wallet) soul…

hey, WINTER. yeah you. Get thee BEHIND ME!

In a sneak attempt to prolong the profit margin of the utility companies, Mother Nature is whipping the Big Windy with all sorts of mess: snow, ice, icy snow, icy rain, high winds, low faces.

I refuse to buckle under the Pressure! This is just more time for me to go get the upcoming season in order. (It is coming, right? Promise???)

Many folks have beat me to the punch – I’m seeing all sorts of wondrous spring-ish garments all over. Have you seen Mademoiselle Michelle’s CeCe? I am so absolutely impressed because she re-cycled some linen-y type yarn from a man’s Structure sweater!!! Or how about the very chic Christine, in her glorious Purple ChicKami? Hmmm. Cotton? Seeing Erika’s Ariann, done in, OMG, Cotton Ease, put me smack dab in a Spring-time frame of mind:

Erika made her collar longer – I’ve been waiting to see if someone would do this – BRAVA! I love it – would recommend going to 6 inches for a great look!

So what’s a girl to do?
That’s what…

All you have to do to get enough *new edition* Cotton Ease (color: Lake) to make an Ariann is send me an email at:
with the words “Spring Fever” in the subject line…
