It's all about the FRONT--

Yes indeed, all about the front. I'd show you a photo of my empty needles, made when the BACK of the cardi was bound off. (And a true celebration it was!) But empty needles really aren't that exciting, well except to me at that point in time. I wanted to knit the diamond portion of the pattern to the point that it was narrowing down where the shoulders would meet but the knitting goddess deemed it necessary that I stop lest a full length coat be born. So be it.

Now that the front has been cast on, ribbed, and the pattern begun I can't get OVER how fast it seems not to have that afghan of a cardi back to work on. It's almost speedy! :) I feel a renewal of knitting even though it is the same project.

It has come to my attention from many of you out there in blogland that you may well be experiencing SPRING. I lust for and hunger after spring, can't wait if the truth be told!! Thank you all for sharing the peeks of buds, the early blossoms and the first flush of flowers it gives me hope. My backyard is mud and there is so much to be done. I'm seriously considering some downsizing and now just might be the time to do it.............. before we mow.

Until then the temp here in the midwest is a balmy 55. Not too shabby------------ I'll take it.

Get Knittin!
