My First Robin of Spring

One of my favorite things about the new house is the absurdly large number of birds that live in the trees in our yard. I’ve spotted chickadees, tufted titmice, blue jays, cardinals, hawks, grackles (I think), woodpeckers and more. This morning I spotted my first robin. Quite fitting for the first day of spring (and more fitting than the current snowfall).

For today’s outfit I pulled out an old sewing project. I had this skirt in the “to mend” pile, but don’t remember what needed mending. It might have been that I wanted to hem it differently. I was pleased to discover I had done a really good job lining and finishing this skirt – despite having made it a long time ago (over 2 years!!), before I had started focusing on finishing.

In other news, my Krona knitting patterns were featured today on the Quince & Co. Website. Much thanks to Pam for including me!!

It feels like forever since I’ve put out a pattern, but I’ve got something very springy currently in testing and it should be out by April 1st. For at least one reader of this blog it will look very familiar…
