Yes I do love Spring, but it does not love me much. My allergies are in play this year with itchy and watery eyes, itchy and running nose, throat is itchy, and sneezing. They peak in the mornings and nights, and it is time to make a visit to the doctor’s office because I have a feeling that they are going to be bad this year.
I finally made my spring necklace today. I purchased some jump rings for the bail component so that the leaf pendent lay front on the necklace. It does not look like the original project from the Bead Style March issue, but it does have the spirit of spring.
I made a trip to the post office on Saturday to pick up a couple of packages of products I ordered. I order a book on knitting design, and a couple of hanks of yarn to knit a pair of stockings. My yarn stash consist of projects I have in the basket. Knit Picks has some yarn at reasonable prices and patterns for $1.99 from independent knit and crochet designers. This is my first ordering from Knit Picks, the yarn costs me around $14.00 and I think the yarn is a nice quality for the price. It is a merino wool and find the yarn soft as I rubbed on my skin. Now it is a matter of me getting to working on the project.
I purchased lemongrass and sage soap and body scrub from Pampered by Adrienne. I smelled the scent before opening the box and was excited because I found it refreshing. I loved the packaging and will look forward to using these products. Just in time for Spring.
I picked up some mussels and white wine to make mussels in wine sauce and pasta. I really enjoyed this dish after a day of running errands and my jewelry making class. I have a couple of books to review, but will write about them in another post tomorrow. However, Ciao for now!
