Happy Easter!

Happy Easter!I wondered about my "in progress" sweater's name, Helleborus. At a family gathering today, I saw a beautiful Helleborus plant. After googling, I discovered that the "Helleborus Orientalis" is known for its early blooming quality, around early spring. Generally around the time of the Christian season of Lent. Described as: plants that inject color into the otherwise dreary landscape and usher in spring, bestowing on it their stamp of approval. That makes me happy to know my sweater is named after such a gracious flowering plant. How timely that I am making it during Easter season and I hope to be finished with it in time to wear for spring.
