Julia's Shawl, & Spring

After a lovely weekend with lots of sun we are back to cloudy, leaden skies. :-( But I saw two trees full of blossom today so hopefully Spring is just around the corner. In fact I think the birds think Spring is on the way, we have two Blue Tits chasing around the garden and I saw one inspecting the nest box just outside my bedroom window. The daffodils are all up and starting to open which is always a good sign.

Julia's shawl is coming along I am about half way. It feels odd to knit with as the yarn is so thin and feels like thick sewing thread. I am glad she went with the square beads, they positively glint in the sunlight.

Ok today is the 29th Feb, the extra day. I don't think I will be doing anything different, Aunty Freda is coming for coffee and that is about it. Oh except for knitting. :-)

Have a great day.


  1. Hey Christine, spring is in the air here also. My irises are starting to get flowers.

  2. Good day, Christine..

    Glad to hear Spring is on the way. And I am looking forward to seeing Julia's shawl.

    Here in SE Texas USA the robins graced me this morning with their presence, which means that they will be heralding in the Spring up north very soon. They only visit us here while they're migrating north and the past two years we didn't see them here at all. I was pleasantly surprised!

    Enjoy the day and the rest of winter,
