When do we usually know that it is really spring, and that we can expect nice weather? When the geese come back from the south:

However, I think this weekend might be the real beginning of spring. Here are a few signs:
|Costo mango, Asian pears and lettuce containers as mini greenhouses|
|A new tenant! A chickadee made a nest in there this week, after it was left empty last year|
|Urban garden is ready to go (as soon as it stops freezing at night)|
So, I did not get much time to knit and weave since the last time I wrote. If you recall, nothing was quite working, and that's how it was until this weekend. I saw my mother on Saturday, and asked her about Peasy. She could not tell me anything new, except that what I had done was right, but in my head, it was still wrong. This morning, I woke up, having decided to just get through it, and yes, it was ok. I have no idea if it got fixed, or if I was wrong all along and it was ok, and I just realised this this morning, but it doesn't matter. I can now go ahead with it. I started the front lace, and I think it will be quite easy, it is very, very well written.
I had another nice surprise this weekend.
I realised that this weaving pattern, which I thought was boring because it was not colourful enough:
So I am a happy crafter.
Today is the last day of my 4-day Easter weekend (good way to start working full time, no?). I think I'll use it to finish another woven piece.
Talk to you soon!
