I woke up to such a beautiful sunrise this first day of May. The sky was perfectly clear with beautiful shades of blue and pretty morning light. I love this time of year. I did a little work in the garden and enjoyed just sitting and listening to the birds sing while sipping on my morning coffee. Just the way a day should start.
I spent some time thinking of the things I would like to knit this month. I knit my first socks last month (almost finished with the second one of the pair now) and I must say I love knitting socks. I see lots more in my future. I'm also going to participate in the small flower mitts knit along. It's a pretty little pattern designed by Ann Myhre and Leigh Miller, which you can find here. And it's free! And to join in the knit along you can get all the info here. I'll also try to get some knitting time in on my Oceanbound shawl by Melanie Berg. I've been knitting it with some indigo dyed wool by A Verb for Keeping Warm and am absolutely loving the pattern, and the wool. I think that will be enough knitting to keep me busy this month, as I also have some sewing I'd like to get done.
What do you have planned to make this May?
Happy spring! And happy May! :)
