A few weeks ago I was so inspired by the beginnings of Spring that I couldn’t resist casting on a new Spring knitting project!

Time has been flying by, and I’ve been doing some lovely outdoor knitting in my favorite outdoor knitting chair…

Just now, I almost had a heart attack when I looked at the above shot and saw that the right sleeve looks bigger than the left!

Blocking, although necessary to knitting (like ironing is to sewing) is not my favorite part, and it WAS rather late…

… but then I remembered that I DID measure the sleeves when I blocked them last night!

And I saw this shot, and realized that they actually ARE the same size. What a relief!

I think the first shot is at a bit of an odd angle and that’s why one sleeve looks bigger than the other…

Have you guessed what my Spring Sweater is yet?

I’m making the lovely Scoop Neck Pullover by Patty Lyons; its in the Spring/Summer 2014 Issue of Vogue Knitting, and it has been a joy to knit!

As soon as it is done drying, I’m off to do the finishing!

What fun Spring projects have you been working on lately?
