Spring knitting

The second Burning Stripes rainbow sock is still moving along.

I am ready to turn the heel, and need to remember the trick to finishing knitting projects is to actually work on them!

Last night at knitting group I knitted two Spring Chicks, a sweet free pattern from the talented Barbara Prime. This morning I finished them-

And they will be a nice addition to our homeschool co-op's nature table. Out of orange felt, I used construction paper instead. 

Laura is making bark boats with the preschool group today and I am hoping to get some wheatgrass started for our dining table this week. It is fun to return to these seasonal projects year after year, especially those heralding spring!
