March Madness

 We have gone a little mad over here. Mad for making things! There has been a lot of knitting and crocheting, baking of bread and cookies, soap making, sewing of shirts and pajamas, quilting and more knitting going on. Creativeness oozing out of us until we finally fall asleep at night. It must be Spring!

 Doesn't the changing of the seasons invigorate you? Somehow it has a way of setting us all in motion. And since we can't work outside yet (especially with this weeks snowstorm!), we have to satisfy ourselves with creating things indoors.
Pictured here is one of the projects I am currently working on, a crocheted Haiku Shawl. It will be a sample for a class I will be teaching at our local knit shop. I have had a lovely time repeating the patterns three rows over and over again (it gives me time to dream of other projects!).
Made in Swan's Island Fingering in Lupine, what could be more springy?

What are you making today?


  1. Heide,

    Your shawl is beautiful! The pattern and yarn are simply delightful. Lavender is one of my favorite colors. I just finished crocheting a doily, and have begun another. It has been awhile since I had crocheted and it felt good to crochet again.


    1. Thank you Sarah. I have really enjoyed this project. Some crochet projects I can't wait to finish, but this one has been very soothing. And a lovely break from knitting!
