Shitty spring

I was fooled yesterday by this little beauty.

Pretty

For a few hours I thought that spring was finally here. Until I woke up this morning

Icky!

On the bright side, crappy weather days are good for a few things

Chai tea

Flower basket wip

I also finished a hat for M.; Gooseberry hat (ravelry link), a really cute pattern. And a new to me yarn, Lerke by Dale. Marie has been wanting a blue hat with a pompom for months. (For my Norwegian readers; One just like Lillebror has in the books by about Lillebror and Knerten.)

Gooseberry hat

I especially love the hat for the yarn, it was a pleasure to knit with. Cotton, but without the pain! I'm curious to see how it wears and washes. If after a few weeks it's still good, I might want a cardi for me out of this. It could compare it to unstretchy Calmer.

Her hat matches the flowers! And both are very pretty.

Crazy random storms are very springy themselves.

Nice hat!

The weather can't seem to make up it's mind if it's Spring or not, no matter where you are. Thanks for sharing the flower picture. Love the hat.
