think spring

I want to take pictures of things to share here, but whenever I have the time, it’s cloudy out. When it’s sunny and bright and beautiful, I have to do things like go to work. So unfair! Oh well, today is cloudy and grey and I’m at work so I’ll just be happy about that.

I’m so ready to start wearing Spring-y clothes. I love warm, cozy sweaters, but enough is enough already. So I made an attempt today-linen blouse with short puffed sleeves and black linen cropped pants. I almost went with the black sandels, but decided not to risk it and stuck with my closed toe shoes. Good thing, since I’m all bundled up now in my Lady Eleanor wishing my Jaywalker socks were finished (almost there! I’m on the second foot, maybe tonight they will be done!). I’m making my plans, though and I’m going to start on two sweaters for myself for this Spring/Summer. First of all, this one:


I’ve ordered some Blue Sky Cotton in Sky Blue (heh!). My only problem with it is that big metal zipper. What’s up with that? I’m going to try and find a blue one. Also, the edges have a crochet finish. This scares me a little. I haven’t given up on the idea of learning to crochet, but I don’t know about learning in time to do all those edges. hmmm.

I’ve also got some Rowan Cashcotton 4 ply in pink for this sweater:


So pretty! I have a hard time knitting sweaters for myself, it’s hard to stay committed to such long term projects, but I love these two so much, I really am going to finish these as quick as I can.

Meanwhile, for a little instant Spring wardrobe gratification I bought these espadrilles last night:


Sigh. Spring is my favorite time of year.

P.S. My email doesn’t work right now, and I owe a few people emails. So if you are one of them, I’m not ignoring you, I just can’t access my email right now.


  1. cute shoes. Where’d you get them?

  2. Famous Footwear! $19.95!

  3. I know what you mean about the winter clothes. I was getting ready to put mine away, but this morning it was only 28 degrees! Oh well, at least it’s sunny. I really love that ruffled cardigan!

say something nice...
