Last Day of May

I was so excited for this month of Project Spectrum to begin- I can't believe it's already nearly over! So many pretty green objects around the house that never got to be photographed this month like bags and purses, shoes, and teapots. What's that saying about best laid plans? I honestly don't know where the month went! Why is it that time flies by so much faster as we get older? Wasn't it just March? Did I blink and miss Spring? Thankfully, I think I have a few more weeks until Spring is officially over, though I feel as though it's just begun.

Anyway, I thought I would end the month (seriously - wasn't it just May Day?) with actual green content as it relates to actual knitting (novel idea) so let me flash the yarn I will be using on my Amazing Lace adventure this summer- Misti Alpaca Baby Alpaca in this yummy muted light greenish-yellowish color.

More on the Amazing Lace to come, including my first official challenge, but for now suffice it to say that this will be truly amazing endeavor for me by the time I cross the finish line.

Totally unrelated but worthy of a shout out: Check out Cara's blog when you have a chance. You may or may not have already heard about the Spin Out she is organizing in Central Park. Regrettably, I am unable to attend, much as I would love yet another "excuse" to go back to the NYC. Thankfully for those of us who cannot be there in person, we can still participate in the accompanying raffle by donating to one of the most wonderful organizations ever, Heifer International. They do such amazing work there, I was happy to contribute (and not for the prizes, either)! Details are up on Cara's blog. Check it out! All the cool kids are doing it! ;)
