I'm working on a new design with generous yarn support from Blue Moon Fiber Arts. One of the colors they sent me: The New Color of Love. Two weeks ago when I got the yarn, I didn't think much of the name. (I did fall in love with the yarn and I promise to write more about this gorgeous yarn in another post.)
But it hit me today. It was a long, cold, snowy winter. Our snow has finally melted. There's still snow in some corners of our yard, but most of it's gone. For months, the landscape was white, then dirty white, then brown.
I have spent the last two days outside, reveling in the sunshine and warm temperatures. And a quick walk around our yard showed me why green is the new color of love.
I feel like I can breathe again. This is our first spring in our new house, so there were lots of surprises. A stream and small waterfall that we can hear from the deck, hyacinths, bulbs coming up where we didn't expect them.
I'll be writing more about the new design soon and hosting a knit a long next month. I hope you'll join us!
