Wow, April flew by so quickly! One minute it was still wintery and the next moment I'm wearing shorts and spending long days in the sun. This past weekend I made my first spring cleaning attempt in our front garden and I'm quite proud of my progress considering I have absolutely no green in my thumb. May is already off to an exciting start and I have a lot of pots on the burners, so to speak: work, a new real estate class, the tops, tanks, and tees kal, and the KKD business updates. I'm glad that this real estate class is only one month long or I will be suffering from some serious burnout.
Given that my schedule is going to be so crazed, I'm focusing on only two projects this month: The Aislyn Pullover from Quince & Co, and a self-published design in the works, which I'm naming Eilat after our recent trip to Israel.
Eilat is a top-down double v-neck tank knit in Quince & Co's Sparrow in Blue Spruce. I'm knitting this as part of a small mini collection featuring my favorite lace stitch. All four patterns should be published by mid-summer if all goes according to schedule.
