Spring is coming????

http://www.interweaveknits.com/preview/2008_spring.asp How can I stay in the winter doldrums when I see what Interweave has planned for their spring issue? Lots of cute little sweaters-still trying to work my head around the "negative ease" notion (I don't very often wear clingy things, so I am still kind of stalled on the idea of intentionally doing it!) The storm, today, is decidedly UN springlike-it kind of reminds me of that flash freeze scene in that movie "Day After Tomorrow" (now there's a movie to freak a person out)
Don't forget my contest- I have very few entries so far-either my readership is down, or else my prize is not very enticing. Hmm- I had better work on that. The lamb, by the way, is not a teeny weeny little bag- it is 22 inches tail to nose, and about 14 inches high (not counting the strap, of course).


Added later: What kind of yarn do you suppose I should add to the sheep?????Sock yarn? laceweight??? Mitten yarn???? (I have some absolutely gorgeous, but now discontinued Tibet by Naturally- lofty super bulky yarn with elastane-in cherry red-would make absolutely fantastic idiot string mittens!!!!!!)

I know right, those adorable little sweaters.

We are getting snow, snow and more snow here. It's fantastic!

Snow bad...especially when it's snowing up, and trees blowing down, etc. You're right, it is kind of like that movie. Also, how's this...the school cancelled Ski Club today; possibly because of snow?

Your prize is quite enticing and I'm sure whatever you choose to put in the sheepie will also be delightful.

Gypsy here--Wind. Cold. Snow. Woof! In now, where blankie for nosie!

I am a little hesitant about the negative ease thing too, since I am not 16 yrs old anymore! But I knit up Coachella from Knitty and loved it. So I guess it really depends on the project...
