SPRING...

.. is finally coming to our little corner of the world . Nature is soooo wonderful x .....despite storms , cold and all the rest ...the flowers and the blossom show us how to hope xx

These trees are on the walk that I take most days with the dogs...



... it has been wonderful to see the blossom develop x

These...



.. are flowers (mostly crocus) that were originally planted, in a park close to my home ,by local school children .. many years ago x They have gradually expanded and moved along and down the slope x Beautiful.

The warmer/nicer weather has inspired me to move from the thicker wools and a 4ply shawl was made...





.....my grandson informs me that I  am "in" as these are colours of a Harry Potter house .. Gryffindor it would seem!... well I never ... I just liked the colour combination xx lol x I added some beads to the lacy border to add a little bling.

Have a good week x

I love garments made with 4ply wool and knitting it. I prefer the result it gives rather than thicker wools. Takes longer I know but ends up snugglier.
We are having rain, rain, rain down here.

So, now Harry Potter is the top fashion designer.....
Our spring is now in an on-again, off again mode. A challenge when picking clothing for the say ... so a shawl is a good choice.

Too funny about the Harry Potter colors! Your shawl is beautiful. Your trees and crocus are ahead of ours. I love the blooming trees. . .especially flowering cherry and apple trees.

I'll look again at these pretty spring photos tomorrow when we in New England are buried in 12 to 18 inches of new snow. :-)

The new shawl is a beauty!! And so "in"! :) It is lovely to see your spring blooms. We are very far away from having any flowers here. First two swans of spring were sighted this morning though.
