Laurel, Beret with Bobbles and Poetry

Laurel, pattern from Brooklyn Tweed




 It's April.  We're at the very beginning of what e. e. cummings called "just-Spring when the world is mud-luscious".   There's a vase of the first daffodils from the garden on the kitchen table and rain/sleet/snow outside.


I spent the morning finishing this hat. 






The yarn is Shibui Knits Baby Alpaca DK, as soft as a breeze, as soft as snow. "The snow doesn't give a soft white damn whom it touches," says e.e. cummings. 


Happy National Poetry Month!



[in Just-]



in Just-
spring          when the world is mud-
luscious the little
lame balloonman


whistles          far          and wee


and eddieandbill come
running from marbles and
piracies and it's
spring


when the world is puddle-wonderful


the queer
old balloonman whistles
far          and             wee
and bettyandisbel come dancing


from hop-scotch and jump-rope and


it's
spring
and


         the


                  goat-footed


balloonMan          whistles
far
and
wee

-e.e.cummings
