Spring knitting -- just in time for summer.

My husband gave me some beautiful hand-dyed sockyarn for Christmas, but I wanted to make something besides socks with it. The lovely lavender, yellow and green begged to made into something for spring.

I started this Lacy Baktus, hoping one skein would be enough -- and then I ran out of yarn just six inches from the end! I thought about ripping it all out and just using the yarn for socks -- but then Scott gave me another skein for my birthday so I could finally finish it!

 I'n it perty?

Yep, it surely is. I can't imagine wearing any more than I absolutely have to today though - it's hot!

I'm working on a lacey open front cardigan right now with sock yarn too. :)
