When we first bought this house, we would sit on the patio, swat mosquitoes, and say to each other, "We need to cover in the patio." At the time we were house rich, and money poor, so it went on the list of dreams. Eventually we saved enough to create the space of our dreams, and from May until October, it becomes the focal space of the house.
However, it is an unheated space, so it serves as an airlock for the dogs and a home for outdoor things during the winter. Today, we declared winter over, and did the annual clean out of the sunroom.
It is now ready to serve as a refuge for knitters and readers. It is a playroom for little cats.
There is a table and chairs for meals, and nearly all meals will now be consumed here, from now on. The wooden benches will become home to pots of flowers, as soon as I go to the garden centre and get some.
Since spring is now officially here, I have pictures of the last cool weather knitting.
Fingerless gloves, I need to spend 5 minutes and finish the second thumb. I might need them come fall.
One last pair of socks in size 6 months, "Jett" will need bigger ones in the fall.
The first spring start is a shawl.
It is called "Into the Woods Owl Shawl" and it will have owls.
In more spring news, my Canada 150 tulips bloomed.
Does anyone besides me see a problem here? I planted 30 in clumps of 5 bulbs last fall.
They all look like this. For those who are unfamiliar with Canada 150 Tulips, they were advertised as being white with red stripes, like the Canadian flag. They look really yellow to me. apparently I am not the only one with this problem. Oh, well.
