Orchids

From all of my mentions about how Spring will be coming soon, one would think I live in the depths of the most frigid cold. I'm actually here in Oregon, where the temperature is relatively mild and the spurts of true cold are few and far between. Regardless of the moderate winter temperatures here, I still long for Spring. I think it's the need to feel the sun (at least on occasion during the rainy Spring of Oregon) and to hear the birds sing. I suddenly and quite happily realized this morning that we're actually less than a month away from the official start of Spring now! (Official, since the weather likely won't reflect it for a while beyond that, but hitting the milestone date of March 21st is still something for which I'm anxious.)

Why this talk of Spring, you ask? Here's why:



JuniperJune knit these fabulous Orchid Lace Mitts (pattern by Anne Hanson) using FF Laceweight Merino Yarn in the Brunette colorway. Aren't they glorious?! Of course, it's not the color that sets my mind to Spring, but rather the pattern. Lacey fingerless gloves are so perfect for Spring and these are just so beautiful!

You can see more of JuniperJune's work on Ravelry, as well as on her new blog.

Before I sign off for today, I want to give you all a quick heads-up that I'll be posting lots of new items in my FF shop this morning. Stop by for a browse if you have a moment.

Great day to all!
