The recently finished Tiny Tea Leaves (sweater pattern by Melissa LaBarre) has been appearing more and more now that the weather is warming. Finished about six weeks ago, this sweater was an easy knit for those of us who can’t (ahem) always keep track when counting stitches in a house full of activity. (Almost no counting required!)

And there was just enough left over yarn to make a caplet for Miss Maggie bunny, little sister’s birthday present this year. Fitting, we thought, for this spring babe who has always adored rabbits.

    So happy to see you knitting. Such a lovely pattern. I have enjoyed my sewn apron immensely. I think I cook better in it. Missing our letters. Spring is upon us and I feel that I am waking from a work induced coma. Sending you love.

      Didn’t mean to imply your turn… just missing our chats:) It’s been such a cold Spring here. I finally toughed it through cold temps, rain, and even a bit of hail today to get my first seeds in the garden, and late at that: kale, chard, spinach, beets, radishes, peas, lettuce, and onions are trembling as I write. Loved the photos of your happy plantlings. Blessings to you and your family. Still looking for our acres to love. xxx ooo

        So glad to hear you managed to get your seeds in the ground. The weather here has been challenging too. Germination in the greenhouse was about 30% for the first planting, which had us all yearning for spinach long before there was enough to eat. Thankfully it’s here now, though the tomatoes are vying for the space. Sigh. Some years are like that. We will need to be creative, which so far looks like moving plants up to bigger pots to hold them off a while longer. Hope you are well.
