This is March to me: mostly shadows, a little sun. Not quite spring, but getting there.
In March, I suppose we should be looking toward shedding winter gear, but the hat I just needed to finish is finished.
For now, we're calling this particular model the Monsters, Inc. Cap, but the "pattern" is called Tweedish because that's just how it looks to me. I'm planning to write up a tutorial one of these days, because it's kind of a cool technique, and a good way to use up scraps of different yarns.
Interest really started to develop when I got out the pompon maker,
in an effort to work a little bit during playtime, and it actually went pretty well. I am now a devotee of this tool (I actually bought a bunch of sizes with coupons and another project in mind), and once we noticed that the colors matched favorite characters Mike & Sulley,
he's barely taken it off.
These blocks are for ASB--mailed off to the UK this afternoon. Very springy, even if the weather's not. This quilt is going to be gorgeous.
