April seems to have slid past without making so much as a gentle ripple on the surface of my life. I've been deep in gift knitting/crochet which is (thankfully) nearly finished - many of the friends-who-I-make-stuff-for have birthdays in April and May so at least I get time during the summer to cast on a few things for myself before the Christmas present rush begins.
Latest off the hook is this blanket for Liz's birthday and I'm really pleased with how the colours of Jitterbug and Koigu work together.

Bulbs on the balcony are starting to sprout and it's time for me to come out of winter hibernation. Yarnwise, I've almost finished a third blanket, this one made out of Colinette Jitterbug. Luscious yarn in luscious colours.
