>> felt a big ol' surge of WANT upon seeing alina appasova's new shawl pattern, lale lace shawl. huge surprise, as i like pretty much everything she does (have you seen lilac wish and yalinka?), but with so many spring-inspired designs i'm starting to feel less and less capable of resisting. i don't buy many patterns, but when i do i knit the crap out of them.
>> shopped for all the colors of the spring. i am not a big fan of clothing shopping, but there comes a time when you realize that the clothes lingering in your wardrobe from college probably should be replaced. luckily for me, i'm a big fan of the spring palette, save for pink/coral/salmon, which i neither like nor look good in. i'm officially ready for the warmer weather to get here!

this week was a trying one, between very long, tiring days at work and absolutely crap weather (caveat: crap weather for florida in march. for those of you still experiencing true winter, you have my sympathies), so i'm especially glad to see bright spring colors, sunny skies, and wide open calendars this weekend! i've got metric assloads of things planned, plenty of it crafty, which i plan to share real soon.
