The peonies haven't even bloomed yet and we broke a record with 94 degrees this past weekend. It's been high 80's-90's since and rainy. Spring in Michigan can be anything I guess. I did have a little fun watching the ants work the buds so bloom is soon, very soon. I love the sweet scent of peonies and the absolutely huge blooms. They are starting to remind me of my knitting though, 'still in progress'. I am grateful to have the shawl to work on right now but I think it overwhelmed me to have one more thing on the needles. I'm declaring June a month to finish some things up before starting anything else.

The lovely and talented Marina sent me yarny gifts - naked Henry's Attic Kona Superwash that I have been 'dyeing' to try! yuk! yuk! I couldn't resist :) Now what to do with this luscious goodness? I'm thinking a colorful handpainted shawl would be wonderful in the fingering weight. Something I wouldn't hesitate to grab and throw on since it is superwash, kind of like a favorite sweater, cozy and comfortable. I feel very honored that she shared part of her stash with me, Thank You Marina!
