Spring is coming

Animated Annie-mals

My sister is going to have a baby, so naturally I’m looking everywhere for baby related things. I found these at Shan’s Needleworks for $2 a piece.

Timmy Turtle

I’m particularly excited about the turtle. So cute!! I haven’t done amigurumi before, nothing has really caught my eye. I’ve seen lots of cool things people have whipped up, but I suppose I’m not into the cutesy items as much when it comes to actually making them. I figure having a niece/nephew gives me the opportunity to make those cutesy things without having to find a place to put them afterward.

I also got a nice discount bag of yarn.

love the colors

and a super handy knitting gauge tool!!

it shows metric on the other side, and canadian and american needle sizes on this side!

I went for a wonderful walk along the quay yesterday, so refreshing. I don’t go walking nearly as much as I should. They have so many beautiful flowers and decorative lettuces planted along the boardwalk, it makes me feel lucky to live where I do. Every morning I can enjoy the amazing colors of the sun rising up beyond the bridges and see the mist float around the river.

    1. yeah, I’m not sure what to make with it yet.. I think it’d make a wonderful shawl or something, when I get some longer knitting needles I’ll find a nice pattern for it.
