Good Weather at last!!

Easter has now come and gone and the weather has taken a turn for the better. My plants are sprouting and the garden looks quite colourful.

It was Ladies Day at Aintree last Friday. No pics available yet. We had a great day. Louise who is 7 months pregnant was a bit dubious about being on her feet all day but in truth she was in better shape than me by the end of the day. I am 6 foot - why do I feel the need to wear high heels?? Not next year - I have already decided what I am going to wear. Actually I am going to knit something..............
We went for a meal after the races and were on the next table to Coleen Rooney - Oh yes rubbing shoulders (well almost) with the WAGS. Sherry Murphy was also there. Honestly I was more impressed that we had a seat!
The good weather has now got me thinking about what I have got on my needles. The Fresian Cow (a Designer Knitting Magazine Pattern - real name - Floral Cardigan) made in Felted Tweed, Louisa Harding Kota Scarf in Merletto, and Cardoon in Rowan Revive. Cardoon should really be finished by now but I have only knitted this at my Knitting group each week. The scarf is something to pick up when I have only got a limited amount of time to knit in the evening and the Floral Cardigan is not really a summer garment.
Soooooo - I need to get something new on the go. The choice this season is overwhelming so I am going to pick my favourites and then get my Knitting friends to give me some advice. My problem - which is probably the same as everybody reading this is that I want to make everything. The weather has definitely been a factor in my choice of favourites. If you fancy making a comment about this blog let me know which project you think I should start.

I am also in love with the two New Mirasol Yarns - Lachiwa and Wachi. Check them out on the website. The colour are so sharp and fresh.
I think that is enough choice for now. I also need to squeeze in some baby items as I have 3 friends who are expecting.
I am looking forward to seeing more finished garments so dont forget - send me any pics and I will post them on the blog. Probably better than me using this as a sounding ground for my indecision.
