Rainbow Groove 

This morning I woke up to several inched of surprise snow on the ground, and only a couple of days after the first day of Spring!  Not happy.  So, this bright post will remind me of what is sure to be around the corner: colors and flowers and sun.  My knitting and spinning has been on a total Rainbow groove, I originally called it a rut, but my friend Andi from SnB said that there is no way that rainbows are a rut.  Is it my desire for spring, or just need for more color in my life?

First I knit with this amazing yarn, Monkey socks in progress.

Which inspired the purchase of this fiber:

Which prompted me recently to go to Knitterly Things, and look at her beautiful self-striping yarns, they have been on my radar for a long time.  So, my splurge included this Vesper Sock yarn, I was originally going to get another rainbow, but opted for a more serene color palate:

And, while I was there, these mini wee-skeins called to me to be knit up into something hopefully creative…

And for a true rainbow, I am making the Dot socks from the Vogue Sock Knitting on the go:

Here is my cuff, using JaWoll Sock yarn for this:

And to be totally forthright, as I was organizing and cleaning my stash today, I forgot that I had purchased this last fall at Wisconsin Sheep and Wool from River’s Edge Fiber Arts
