housekeeping I will set up a thread in the Ravelry group when we hit 150 members for a giveaway! The Hungriest Knitter is hosting a Spring Sock-Along from May 1 to June 10. Knit an adult sized pair of socks or any project that uses at least 1 full skein of sock weight yarn. Prizes TBA -- if you'd like to contribute a prize, please contact me! MDSW is May 3 and 4. I'll be attending May 3, so if you're going to be there, let me know.

stash acquisitions A fabulous limited edition screenprinted project bag designed by Jen Hewitt for Fringe Supply Co. Two skeins of sock yarn from Lynai Yarns in the Bloom and Across the Universe colorways. Three skeins of the discontinued Opal Vincent Van Gogh in Cafe Terrace at Night, Trinquetaille Bridge and The Red Vineyard at Arles.

on the stovetop I'm obsessing over spring vegetables -- grilled or roasted and dressed with vinaigrette or salsa verde. I'll share a salsa verde recipe later in the week. I'm also eating avocado toasts like there's no tomorrow and made a mean mushroom pate. What kind of foods do you crave in the spring?
