Springtime in Hollis

Thank you so very much everyone who left such kind comments on my last post. I can't tell you how much that means to me! Right now I feel so very unsure about so many things that it's so heart warming to know that I still have you all to talk to regardless. It feels as though Spring is taking her time coming this year, even with the sun out today it's chilly and I'm glum. Every time I turn on the the TV or hop on the internet all I see are the extremely horrific images of the damage in Japan. I can't even begin to imagine the fear of losing your home, or having the health of you and your children put at riskbecause of radiation. My heart aches for them and I feel selfish for being down about silly things like wishing I didn't have so many bills, or wishing that I didn't have so much laundry to do. I made a donation today to the Red Cross. It wasn't much but every little bit helps and it felt good to be able to give even that small amount. It gave me hope.

But, because I don't want to leave on a sour note here's a little knitting. It's the small things in life that are beautiful and I must remember it's the small things (like knitting) that make life so wonderful!

This is for my little red head, the color perfectly matches her hair and I almost wish she'd grow a little faster so she can wear it. I finally broke down and ordered some Quince & Co. yarn for this project. I absolutely love the yarn and the finished project. I'll definitely be buying more of their scrumptious fibers. And the gorgeous little dress underneath is from one of my favorite designers EVER, Heather of Skinny LaMinx fame. Here's the Ravelry link for more details.


  1. It is nice to have you back and what a lovely post. You don't have to feel guilty about being a bit down, we all get like that sometimes. Spring certainly is a long time coming, it's like November here in Old Blighty today, we need some sun to cheer us up! Take care of yourself x p.s. the knit is lovely.

  2. Added the pattern to my faves on Ravelry - it's gorgeous, and I love the colour.

    I don't think I ever commented before your break but wanted to say now how much I enjoy your blog - great to see you posting again!

  3. Love the little cardie, and so pleased the dress is still going strong too. x

  4. Any ideas on where I can find a cool desktop calendar now that I know youʻre done for now? Pretty please?
