Yes Virginia, there is spring out there!

Wanted to say I am not complaining of all the ways we stay connected. I am pleased there are so many ways, and I am very happy to have found all of you, and happy to stay connected. As a matter of fact- its great to see what my friends are doing all over the world. I love it.

Some of you doubt the spring, but here is some proof:
1. The obligatory crocus shot. Notice- mud, not snow on the ground!
yes Virginia, there is spring out there!
2. I left the house without a hat, with only my little seasilk scarf. (well, ok, I also had my trekking pro-natura socks on, but they are for spring!) The seasilk, by the way, is perfect for early spring, and I am glad I made it short.
scarf, but no hat!

matching socks and scarf...
Just wanted to write a note about my reference to friends being non supportive. It has nothing to do with my fiber life. They think its kind of "cute." Its got to do with other issues, and it is disappointing to experience it. Sometimes we have to face change. I keep knitting, for balance

Nice photo of you in "balance"!Thanks for the crocus shot - they are my favorite spring flower.

Glad spring is heading your way! We still have snow, but today it was warm enough to open the windows a crack an let some fresh air in (well, it's 22F, but that's warm enough for me!)
I like your self-portraits. Balance in change is good, knitting is my favorite way to get there (or to pass the time until I can manage it!)

Mmmm, nice crocus! Am knitting for balance myself. Cheers.

Great shots and glad that spring is arriving with you also.
With you totally on the knitting thoughts and for me spinning also applies. I'm a Libran so balance is essential for me :)

I never get tired of seeing photos of flowers and you take such lovely pictures.

My dearest friend. Luve that scarf, and I agree. Today was a sunny fabulous day, Crocus blooming here as well - unusually early. We need balance. Im a Libra 2(but every time I say that I hear Frank Zappa in my ears answering - Love your nails).. You sure brighten up the blogsworld.

Yes, you are definitely doing a great job balancing!

thanks for your comment about our blanket. 35,000 ends is exaggeration, of course--but it truly feels like 35,000! Today in Wisconsin the temperature is in the 80's--we're not ready yet for such heat. The crocuses will be open and gone in one day!!
Love your portrait and scarf.

That last photo is really rather cute!

I love the Spring so much - BRING IT ON!! NOW.

Alice said...

Thanks so much for asking how we all are now (just seen your comment). We are all well and appreciate your asking.

I think Spring has definitely arrived! Your crocus photo is lovely as is your Seasilk scarf. I think Seasilk is one of my favourite yarns and it looks great in that pattern. By the way, what colour did you use for it?
