Yes, its April

p1010029.jpgFor some reason, April always makes me happy.  January has always been my toughest month-not sure why that should be so, but it is-and the following months take a slow upturn ’til we get to April.  April makes me smile.  It may sound like a seasonal disorder but it has been this way even here in California (where spring essentially lasts like, 15 minutes and begins in late February)…perhaps it does have something to do with the amount of sunlight, I don’t know.   But today is April 1st and I’m glad.

I have been spinning and hope to finally finish up the “Seashell Pink” yarn today.  I will probably make a 2 ply out of it like the first bit, but I find chain plying so addictive that I am curious to see how it would look if I did that.  I hope I can resist the urge since the color changes have been kind of intended to be twisted in a 2 ply way. I will have pics of it later if I finish it up.

On the knitting side (I vaguely remember knitting-lol) I am plugging away on the CPH, but I am distracted by the fact I scored a “Street Smart” booklet from Ebay and have been drooling over the “Must Have Cardigan” and the “Urban Aran”….I have the yarn for the MHC in my stash already….and its tempting….but then I look over at my poor CPH and feel guilty.  I have the back and 90% of one sleeve done but I am a little disheartened since I have the original KnitScene magazine pattern  and have heard about the errata and the fact the sleeves run to the tight side.  These issues have pretty much stalled my progress as I try to decide what to do.   I think I just might rip it all out, buy the updated pattern online and start again fresh.  In the meantime…..I could begin the MHC without feeling guilty….right?

(ps-I hope you enjoy the flower pic, I took that over the Easter weekend-I was told when we bought the house that it was a kind of jasmine, it certainly smells like jasmine.  If anyone knows what it is let me know)
