Spring Knitting!

Spring has finally arrived here in my remote corner of the planet!  Every plant is displaying their new growth in my favorite version of green!
Two weeks ago, the same pond looked like this!  As mentioned previously, I have been buried in 007 and UFO projects.  Fortunately for me, Nissa requires a lot of exercise.  That means we spend time outdoors every day ... no matter what the weather!  With spring arriving so late this year, I was forced to seek and create spring dillydally style!

Yep ... I am a professional at creating my own fun!  Retail therapy to the rescue!  If Mother Nature wasn't going to cooperate ... I would buy my own version of spring!
As long term followers know, I am a big fan of Sherri Falls and her quilt designs, This and That Patterns.  She is also a knitter, and makes the sweetest and most useful knitting bags!
I love to take handwork out the road when temperatures allow ...
Impossible to get Nissa to pose for pictures.
... it is so nice to linger after a long walk ...
Sometimes her photo bombing works to my advantage!
... and cradle myself in Mother Nature's arms while dillydallying.  I filled my new bag with a project I had started right before my knee surgery a year ago!  It was impossible to knit during my recovery and it quickly became a knitting UFO.  It felt wonderful to pull it out and make a bit of progress!
Coastal living means that weather patterns change quickly ... one day after a walk, it took an entire pot of tea to warm up! Yep ... we were wearing mittens on our walks in May!
After a few rainy afternoons, Little Blue Bear began to come to life!
He really is turning into a cutie!  And I have had to convince Nissa that he is not a "dog" toy!  Even on dreary rainy days life is never dull in DillyDallydom!
Little Blue Bear is also developing a personality of his own!  He is a sweetie and a bit precocious for a bear who is still waiting for arms and legs! ;-)
The sun is shining and temps are supposed to be above 60 degrees today!  Welcome June!  Let's fill the month with dillydally fun!

Do what you love!  Do dillydally!
