The snow has gone the snow has gone!

The snow drops are up.

And I've been shopping at the Unwind Yarn House spring sale.

The rust coloured Aran "tweed" is Kathmandu and I can't wait to make something with this silk blend...perhaps a lace pattern shawl. The ivory yarn, Rown Summer Tweed, is also a silk blend. Not sure what that will become yet. The lovely coloured wool is for the wrap sweater pictured in the book. This Freedom Spirit colour is called "soul". I made a slouchy tam from the same yarn in a rich red colourway. Very nice to work with.

A picture of our frozen window, from last week. The snow has two days. I have eaten all my points today and I'm hungry and it is only 8:20 p.m. oh sigh. But, I am feeling good about this W.W. thing.

Karen and I are going to Canada Blooms tomorrow afternoon/evening. I just can't wait....a breath of spring is so needed right now.
I'm hungry, saving some "points" for later tonight. Weight Watchers has been going very well...down 7 lbs. as of today after one month and one week. I am happy and will try to make these dietary changes last for a lifetime. Still a way to like 23 more goal is to have the weight off my TIFF!
I've been watching "A Year in Provence"....half-way through the "Spring" episode. It is great knitting viewing. Working on "Claude"....the back is done. I'm happy with the progress so far. Anna writes the most simple directions and the most beautiful designs I'm just about ready to start the front cables. I think I trip to "Courage My Love" is in order to find the perfect buttons.

Look what the postlady brought me March Break get-away books. On the weekend I knit a pair of cotton fingerless mitts for nice they go with my tapestry "jean" jacket. And lastly, a self-portrait to watch the W.W. progress.

What a difference the sun makes
