Spring Break

Spring break is a special week for me. Instead of planning a trip somewhere far, warm and full of excitement, I use this time to become a hermit and cloister myself at home. Perhaps it's that little bit of introvert in me that says to stay in during my time off from the crazy school days (and my, are they ever crazy). I wear flat shoes instead of heels, read books and watch silly British movies just for the accents. Oh, and I knit.

Project: Peaks Island Hood by Ysolda
Yarn: Madelinetosh Tosh Vintage 2.5 skeins in Oak
Needle: US 10
Buttons: coconut wood, 1 inch diameter

I whole-heartedly love this hooded scarf. The color is the most perfect green. The variations in the yarn make it look like the mosses and lichens on rocks growing in the shady parts of Bidwell Park. Magical.
