Printemps Release And Beachcombing

I LOVE spring. It is one of my favorite seasons! And what better way to celebrate than with a stranded colorwork hat with Spring as the inspiration.

Printemps features traditional colorwork in the ring of rabbits and a crown of budding leaves. Sure signs of Spring! And since spring weather is notoriously unpredictable, you’ll have a cozy hat for the cooler days.

The hat is worked on 3mm needles in your favorite fingering weight yarn.  The pattern is now available for instant download here on my website, Ravelry, and Etsy.

To celebrate the launch of Printemps, I’m offering 20% off the pattern price both here on my website and on Ravelry with the coupon code “20spring“.


Since many of you shared with me your favorite ways to ring in spring in the previous post comments, I though that I would share some pics of mine … beachcombing.

I love going to the beach an searching out pretty rocks and shells, drift wood, and seaglass.  Plus, its a ton of fun to have a picnic!  Food always tasted better al fresco, don’t you agree?

The beach in the pictures is one of our favorites.  It is really close and is usually pretty quiet.  We had the whole beach to ourselves on Sunday!


Judah and Willow love having the run of the place and there are so many big rocks and crevices to explore.

A day on the beach isn’t complete with out finding a few special shells to take home …

… or without getting wet and sandy.


The spring sunshine feels so good on our faces.

We never feel like leaving and always look forward to the next trip to the beach.

I hope you all have a lovely day and happy Spring!
