April is here! For the next two months, Project Spectrum is all about GREEN, YELLOW, and PINK!

I have to admit, I was excited to get this month started. I loved working with blues, grays, and whites, but I am in a new state of mind, and ready to move on to new crafts and new possibilities. Green and pink are two of my favorite colors (the other two being blue and brown), and I love using these colors together in my crafts.
Case in point:
This cardigan is flying off the needles! I completed the back on Friday, and promptly started the left front, seen here in the foreground. The yarn is a little finicky, with the black nylon ply around the cotton and rayon threads, but is knitting up into a beautiful fabric. It is pretty light, and will make a very nice summertime wrap over a little black dress.
Shades Sock in Trekking XXL #107
This sock pattern is from Nancy Bush’s mail order service, The Wooly West. It was a birthday gift from Jenna last November, along with two other NB patterns. (Perfect for the Compendium project!) I chose to use the lovely #107 colorway of Trekking XXL, as it has slight variegations of all of the new Project Spectrum colors! I have another pair of socks on the needles right now as well, but honestly, this pair really has my attention right now!
More to come!
