You know- I think sometimes I am a bit odd. I hasten to qualify this-I don't mind Mondays at all. It's the beginning of a new week, and to look forward to what can be accomplished. Not so much with housework, although I plan to go upstairs and do a massive clear out of my closet. There are things in there which I know I won't wear, and a clear closet is better for my morale. I hate having to cram things in a drawer.
I also like this time of year, whether the sun is out or not. It's quiet and peaceful, and I like watching the snow fall- no garden to clear up, maybe a bit of shovelling, it's nice.
I even have a finished knitting project- for those who don't hang on Ravelry too much:
Etsy seller made it, and it's in marblewood. Cool, huh?
I'm also finishing up some Fair Isle designs, which I have to decide what I'm going to do with. A hat and a tam, as well as a V-neck pullover- I will probably self publish these patterns. The inspiration is Canadian Art- as in The Group of Seven, mostly influenced by landscapes of the north. There are colour stories that haven't been explored in knitting- and to go to a gallery and look at these is to experience Canada as these artists perceived it.
I also have in mind another square Shetland shawl, and have some books on order from Heirloom Knitting- Sharon is a historian as well as a designer, and her books are well worth the price.
Have a great week.
