In spring every knitter's fancy turns

A couple of weeks ago it was officially spring. A typical British Isles spring, a few brighter days, temperatures creeping into double figures enough for a lighter coat but nothing spectacular. I was thinking fine handknits, smart skirts and trousers and light jackets where my wardrobe mainstays.

So I cast on a certain vintage inspired jumper I'd been raving about in a wool cotton mix.

The the sun came out and I started thinking of floral and floaty dresses and this little number from Debenhams.

With beads - something I'll talk about when I've decided whether I decide it was worth it.

Of course the sun will probably vanish now but at least I have two projects for as my fancy turns.
