It’s time to pack away my warm woolies and pull out those fun little tops and swishy skirts and summer dresses because it is spring and I love spring ♥

My knitting is going in the same direction too with the latest project that’s on my needles… the Spring Garden Tee.

I test knit this pattern for Alana a couple years ago and that finished project, knit in Be Sweet Bamboo, was mailed out to be a part of her trunk show.

I’ve been wanting to knit a SGT for myself and a KAL hosted by Shannon of luvinthemommyhood was the perfect excuse to get going.


I swatched with some recently acquired Araucania Ruca.

The gauge swatch turned out so drapey and soft and the color of this yarn is a *delicious hot pink!

* I apologize if you’ve grabbed your sunglasses to read this post because the colors look completely blown out.  Thing is, my laptop’s on the fritz and I’m using the home computer to write this post and the pictures look completely peptobismolesque to me!!!  I’m such a creature of habit and even though my dead laptop is old and cranky and takes a half hour to fire up, I love her so and the colors aren’t so over-zealous!  New laptop’s on the way, in the meantime, I gotta make this work. 

Happy middle of Spring everyone 🙂

    It looks lovely and the knit fabric doesn’t look peptobismolesque at all 😉
