a sunny spring day


With the current temperature at 22°C and an expected daytime high of 24°C, we're definitely going to be breaking some records. Especially when you consider that typical daytime highs for this time of year are about 7 or 8°C. This past March was the first March with no snow whatsoever in downtown Toronto since record-keeping began. Crazy and alarming for sure. But it's hard not to love this unexpectedly gorgeous, warm and sunny spring.

The kids should be arriving shortly to get this Easter weekend started, and you may have already guessed that just the one bunny egg cosy is done. These last couple of weeks have been busy - precious little time left for knitting. I've done a few more repeats on my Gull Lace blanket, started the second Esther sock, and that's about it.

I really like your blanket ! Lucky baby that will be able to snuggle up with it . Feels like summer here today , bizarre but lovely to shed some of those wintery layers ...

Happy Easter !

Odd that. We're having just the same temperature down here in Melbourne. Normal for us at this time of year but not for you.
I really like the lacey pattern of your blanket. Hope you're enjoying your Easter.

It's been beautiful here, too. Everything is getting green and the flowers are starting to bloom. Not sure about the metric thing but I think that's warm for you.
