Spring Tease

It was SO nice in Seattle on Saturday. So nice. I even got a tan sitting outside of Peet's with Anne-Marie (although it's only on my right arm because of the way I was sitting. Oops!). I was there in a tank top, shorts, and flip-flops. Lovely. In the 70s. And then yesterday? Back into the 50s, with rain. Today? 40s and rain. The rest of the week? The same. Anyway, here are some lovely tulips to brighten the gloom!
Pink TulipsI finished the main part of the tank top and the first lace panel on the front, so I'm almost finished! I have the second lace panel to finish and then the straps, which should go quickly. Then, even though I converted it to the round, there is a lot of finishing to do because there is crochet around all the edges plus some sort of fancy crochet (Have I mentioned that my knowledge of crochet stops at single crochet edgings?) around the lace panels. I think I'll be enlisting Anne-Marie for help on that, and it should be finished soon!

Officially we got to 79 - that's so close to 80 it's mind-boggling. We rarely hit 80 in August. And what's it been, two or three weeks since it snowed? Though I missed that.
