It’s a Beautiful Morning

Today has been one of those mornings that is so inspirational. We are having some unseasonably gorgeous weather here in Southern California. I awoke this morning to warm sunshine. This kind of weather, so spring-like, is perfect for throwing open the doors and windows and letting in the fresh air after weeks of keeping out the cold.
I decided to take advantage of this early spring and grab my knitting, a pillow, my iPod, and a glass of iced tea and set up shop on the patio. I couldn’t believe how happy everything in my backyard was. The trees were full of little birds hopping around, busy with their morning routines. I even have some beautiful roses blooming in my completely overgrown flower beds.
All of this put a spring in my knitting needles as I got a great start on my latest project. I’m making the Moderne Baby Blanket, from the book Mason Dixon Knitting, for our little one due in July.

Blanket Beginnings

I’m knitting it in Knit Picks Comfy which, combined with their nickle plated circular needles, is a dream to work with . I love the way the cotton yarn just slides right off, easy as pie! It is making this project such a joy to work on.
Even if your weather isn’t exactly perfect right now, find a quiet place and load up on comforts you enjoy. Happiness can only follow!
