WIP Wednesday - Spring is in the air

Hello Lovelies! Sun is shining, flowers are blooming.. It's like winter has gone crazy!

I'm trying out 'eastern european style knitting'. It's like continental style but different ;-) When I started knitting not so long ago, continental style just wouldn't work with me and my clumsy fingers. But I was determined to learn knitting so I tried the english style (with the 'throwing') which worked for me. Then I started 'flicking', but I still held the yarn in my right hand.. I've now knitted a few rows eastern european style on my basketweave blanket and I think I'm getting the hang of it.

I've also started making several spring colored balls! It's a bit random, but that's what happens when spring is in my head! I need color! I'm not sure what I'll make with them though, maybe make a caterpillar?

And of course Valentine's day is coming up, I wonder if I should make something .. A cuddly toy? A garland? mmm.. still thinking about it.. Are you making something for Valentine's day?

Continental can be awkward for first time learners. I taught English/throwing to my students (kids and adults) as it was easier. I use this method when I strand knit.
The colorful balls are fun! I need to make some for my friends' little ones and my niece.
