Hey. How are you? I've been hibernating a little, because it's been really snowy and cold. I did, however, go for a long walk with the daughter, niece and sister last Sunday, and that was fun, but man, was it icy. I'm lucky I didn't go ass over teakettle. Went to the gallery and saw a new exhibit- Mary Pratt.
How is 2014 going so far? I feel a shift towards better times, a happier sort of year. I realize it's a bit early in the game to decide this, but 2013 was a bit of a washout, and while change is hard, it is also good. I am going to keep that positive thought. Most people on my radar are moving toward positive things.
On the knitting front, I have been inspired. I have a few new things in the works, and am working on finishing up a few WIP's- (cough) like the squirrel sweater from hell. I hope it works out, but most patterns and projects are a leap of faith, aren't they?
Lately, I have re-acquainted myself with my beloved Shetland yarns. And even spinning some, as for some reason I haven't worked much with it. I know alot of people think Shetland is scratchy, and yes, it can be. But I have been knitting with it for years, and it is wonderful. It has body, takes colour well and wears beautifully. It is my favorite yarn to work with. I'm having a lovely time spinning some laceweight on Mr. Reeves-
Three Waters Farm BFL- the colour is "The Gloaming", browns, deep purples and hot pink. Marvellous.
Animals make me laugh. Fleece out, until next time.
