sparking joy

Happy first day of Spring! It seems like this month has been flying along at full speed. I've been trying to unplug from technology a bit and just enjoy the little moments as they present themselves: reading actual books, listening to music on cds, cooking from my collection of cookbooks and knitting on various projects. I also started a granny stripes blanket that is sparking so much joy that Marie Kondo would be proud. Gotta love a project that makes use of all those leftover fingering weight scraps that are taking up precious space in the stash. And watching how these hand dyed yarns are crocheting up is so mesmerizing because the visual effect is quite different than in knitting. This will no doubt be a long term project but that's ok. I'm loving every moment of it so far.
