Some Springy Knitting

In an act of desperation, as we continue to wake up to freshly fallen snow (it's not as picturesque as one might think) I grabbed this sweater I made for The Elder when she was in 2nd grade, and I am re-fashioning it for The Youngest.
You can see where the yarn has been re-knitted, I hope it'll block out o.k..
The idea for this sweater was clouds in a blue sky, but I plan to embroider some crocus and snow drops along the bottom, since the white could also be snow.
Actually, this week we're seeing higher temperatures, like double digits and everything! Spring may just be on its way.

What's on your needles today?

I love the embroidery idea! It looks great! I bet it will block out just fine.

Hate to commiserate over the snow... but it's been a bit much, no? I live on the North Shore and we have grown weary of it too. Mud puddles today, though. Hang in there!

Oh, pretty! I love that you are refashioning the sweater! I think that your plan sounds lovely and I would think that it should block out just perfectly.

And, oh, yes! Am I ready for spring!
