It has been a very long and fierce winter here, as it has been in many other locales. During January and February - I loved it. A good old fashioned winter. Lots of 'can't go anywhere' days that meant quiet times for knitting and reading. Lucky for us we not only don't have to drive to work anymore but we can also walk to most amenities in our village. So, contrary to many, I enjoyed the winter. But tomorrow is April 1 and I think that is a bit too late to still be winter. I am thinkin' spring.
Apparently so are a few other knitters. Look at the spring colours posted by some of my ravelry friends.

More spring socks - http://www.ravelry.com/projects/Celinas-Mor/wedge
A spring coloured tunic - http://www.ravelry.com/projects/Celinas-Mor/cha-cha
And then the magazine I treated myself to on the weekend talks about Spring on the cover and features these spring-like patterns.
But the most telling sign of them all, the sign that really has me thinkin' spring - Curlerchick is wearing flip flops.
