*****Snow*****

 

Well, I had planned on a lovely, cheery, Springy post about my skirt sewing. BUT–Mother Nature has done a number on my mood, my garden and my plans for sewing. I woke up yesterday morning bright and early, and turned over to look out the not so clean window and the pine trees were COVERED in snow! Coated, bending and layered in icy snow. My Aspen trees broke again… My dogwoods are covered in bubble gum pink flowers, and yesterday their lusciousness was covered in frozen snow.

My local yarn shop BY HAND in Sonora, Ca.http://www.byhandyarn.com/  has a customer show  every June. I have a few things that I can let them borrow, and I now have an inspiration to complete the incomplete Crayon Box Jacket. I’m not sure I really love my version of it. My jacket is very busy. I think perhaps I over did it with color and texture.  Here, I’ll show you the pieces…

The Sleeve and Gussets

 

The Front

 

The Back

So, would you please leave me a comment and tell me if it’s just “too much”? Too” it will alter your vision”…Just too darn bright?

Anyway. I’m knitting as fast as I can, pretending like I’m going to love it.

One thought on “*****Snow*****

  1. Too colorful – of course not. Is there such a thing? Besides, it will show up nicely against the snow that apparently is never going to leave Twain Harte.
