Time flies...

Doesn't it?  Not much advancement for my Damson.  Actually, there is regular unknitting of it!  I keep doing the yos wrong and only see it a few rows later...

Also, things are starting to grow here...  I will transplant in larger pots this afternoon or later this week.

I'm so excited, it's the first time I have tulips this spring and they are so beautiful already!  It's a surprise everyday!

I love this picture.  I think the flower is so delicate and the yellow is just so beautiful!

I also wanted to bring to your attention a great contest that my friend Chantal at Brin dans le vent is having this week!  Such a lovely bag for circular needles!  Good luck to everyone!

I wish you all have a wonderful week!

My current WIP is going quite well!  Garter stitch is so relaxing...  I've undone a few rows, a few times, because I misplaced the yos or knitted a RS on the WS...  but all in all, it's very pleasant!

I've been reading helpful notes on Ravelry for modifications because I only have 100g of yarn.  I'm monitoring the progression very closely and comparing the number of stitches knitted versus the yardage used.  So far, it looks like decreasing the needle size by 0.50 mm is all that I needed to do!  It will be smaller and I think it will make it just the right size to be worn more like a scarf than like a shawl!

Ha, ha, I've been procrastinating a lot today ;-)  Oh well, sometimes that's what you need to do during your vacations!  Right?  It's just that I always think that I can do so many things ;-)

Have a great week!
