Knitting a Spring Cowl using the Eyelet Moss Stitch

Hello friends,

I have just started knitting a light cowl for the spring.  I am using the eyelet moss stitch pattern that I found on the Knitting Galore blog.  There are tons of great stitches on this blog it is like a stitch dictionary.  This stitch stood out to me because it looked like it would be light and airy for spring’s warmer temperatures.

 I have also made some progress on my baby blanket that I have been knitting mostly while I was finishing up the second season of House of Cards.   It is getting much longer now I think I have to knit double the amount you see in the photo to complete the blanket.

I hope you are all are having a great Friday and have a good weekend!
Take care,

Spring is finally here and knitted blanket update photos

Hello Friends,

I have been super busy with school work  last week I was preparing an essay to send in for Friday worth 30% of my grade so it was a big deal!  then I was also working a lot of hours at the store.  Excuses aside, today I have taken some time out after sending in my assignments to knit more of the blanket and also take some photos to share with you :)  I will be knitting and blogging a lot more now since I have finished some major assignments ! yay

I am so happy that we are finally having the Spring weather here in Toronto.  This winter has been horrible with all the snow storms and weather changes.  I have felt so much happier and lighter the past few first days of Spring!

Progress made on the blanket! still have a long way to go!

The clovers in the green pot and the daisies in the brown pot are sprouting! it really is Spring :)

As always thank you so much for visiting my blog I really appreciate the support and wonderful comments :)  I hope you all have a great day!

Take care,
Lisa :)

5 Knitting Ideas for Spring!

Hello Friends,

 The weather is beautiful here in Toronto today and it is putting me in great spirits!  I have submitted my two assignments for school and I am free to work on some more knitting for my baby blanket so it’s a great day! Below I have included some ideas for things to knit for spring!  as it gets warmer we need to wear lighter knits and let go of the heavy and chunky knits and save them for next winter.

1.   This bird’s nest by “The Purl Bee” by Purl Soho is perfect for the start of spring.  We will be seeing a lot of birds flying around soon, I can already hear them chirping outside. 

 2.  This lovely light cowl called "Rustic Lace cowl" by "Balls to the Walls Knits" is perfect for Spring.  The beautiful lace details and the light wool make a nice addition to any spring wardrobe.

3. These knitted Spring flowers are a perfect addition to add onto clothing, scarves, headbands and more. You can visit Knitculture's blog to see how you can make some of your own!

 4.       This is a light lace scarf called the"Gurie Jabot Scarf" from Berroco.  It is perfect for spring with the light brown color and the lace to make it airy. 

5.  You can find this Light cowl pattern on this “Balls to the Walls Knits” blog by Gretchen.  It is a nice light and airy cowl perfect for spring.  Time to shed those heavy chunky scarves and go for something lighter!

Have a great night! Thank you for your visit !

Knitted Baby Blanket Progress and Planting for Spring!

Hello Friends,

How is everyone doing? I have been busy with my two online University courses (Women's Writing and Philosophy) that I have assignments coming up for soon! There is so much work to do, and I love taking some time out of writing and reading to do some KNITTING! 
Below I have posted some photos of how the blanket is looking so far. I still have a long way to go.  The pattern is a basket weave stitch.  I also posted a photo of my pots from Target that I purchased this week.  The seeds came with the pots and one has clover seeds and the other has daisy seeds.  The third plant in the baseball pot is one I have had for years.  It used to be in my classroom in the toddler room but then I brought it home with me.   I am ready for spring now!  Maybe the more I think about Spring it will come faster? Pretty please?

Now I am just waiting patiently for them to grow... :)
Have a great night!
