“Lila regn innan vår natt är slut”*

I’m continuing to work on my socks. I have abandoned the orange socks, well, they were finished after all, in favor of another sock-in-progress. This one is purple, a much welcoming color this time of the year.

Speaking of Purple, I found blooming lilacs today! That’s insane! Too early! The bird cherry hasn’t even started yet, lilacs before bird cherry, that’s just weird. A quick search on the blog though shows that this happened last year as well, and on the same day too. Last year it was only the one little flower though, this year it’s much more.

It seems I left all my socks-in-progress just before the toes because I’ve knit a purple toe today too. I always find it easier to knit socks in public when the first one is done. People always ask what I’m making and it’s hard to explain that it’s a sock before it’s finished. It’s much easier if I already have one finished that I can show. And since this toe is now finished, I can easily show the sock to people.
