Just like that, March is over!  With spring on it's way, (I think!) there have been lots of new beginnings happening in my knitting queue:

Left: Here's a good start on the Lesley pullover from Hannah Fetig's book, Home and Away.  After seeing the announcement for the #wewearknitbot fashion show on Instagram, I couldn't stop myself from casting on!  I bought this wonderful collection last year and Lesley was one of the designs that instantly caught my eye, so I cast on with some old Green Mountain Spinnery wool in a beautiful marled raspberry-ish color. 

Middle: Ondawa beginnings!  I love a good cabling project, and I finally ordered the yarn for this beauty designed by Michelle Wang.  I decided on Fauna (after knitting almost a whole sleeve in a different color!) and the color depth and richness is ridiculous.  Photos don't do it justice.  

Right: A Snoqualmie swatch in the new bulky yarn from BT: Quarry.  Holy cow, this stuff is what knitter's dreams are made of.  It's soft (for 100% wool), light and lofty yet warm, and has beautiful stitch definition.  I'm not sure when I'll start the rest of this cardigan (although I could use it just now with all the spring snow Wisconsin has had lately) but reading Closet Case Files progress on her Snoqualmie knit-a-long is giving me serious cast-on-itis.
