Happy springtime! I love this time of year when we (sometimes) start to feel the sun, my instagram feed fills up with pictures of lambs and the days get longer. And ever since the Edinburgh Yarn Festival my needles have been moving at super-speed, finishing up old projects and working on shawls, toys and light sweaters for the children I know. It seems like there is inspiration everywhere, so today I thought I’d share a few of my favourite projects inspired by spring.
Seeing the toy designs knitted up in bright, more unusual colours is one of my favourite things, so I couldn’t resist this adorable mousie knitted by kippiann, especially when he’s obviously made a friend already.
Everything about this project makes me smile with thoughts of springtime. This little Sophie was knitted by Dona and I’m now adding a pom pom tail for Sophie projects to my list of wonderful ideas!
And finally, a very spring-like Strokkur that I absolutely love (and not just because there’s a sheep peeking in the background.) Bossyfemme told me that ‘I knit that sweater in Seattle Seahawks colours because I was moving to Seattle & was hoping to meet sports friends & knitting friends simultaneously. I wear it constantly.’
