I suppose not really, but it sure feels like it. The last few days have been very cold, and extremely windy, which makes very cold feel like bitter artic cold.
Good thing I have lot of cowls and shawls and hats and socks, right? I do need more sweaters though, and that is a fact. Better move one up the queue. 🙂
Today I was huddled at my desk in a wonderful cowl I made a few years ago (with some fabulous handspun yarn I got at Common Ground Fair – it has PEARLS spun into it!) around my neck, my giant gray fluffy Pi shawl wrapped around my shoulders and torso, and my boss cracked up. I asked him if he wouldn’t mind paying the heating bill. 🙂
But now I am warmer, and have put the shawl away for a time. But not very far away – I feel the draft when the door opens and it does that frequently in the mornings.
My knitting is moving right along – slow on this project, as it is one I only work on when away from home (my “mobile” project)
and faster on this one, which I work on each evening.
Just about done with the tenth repeat of the third chart – love the pattern and placing the beads as I go is getting to be not as cumbersome as at first – I am developing a rhythm for that, too. Can’t wait to see what the 4th chart looks like… and the 5th and 6th… 🙂
Yarn peeks over the back of the couch at me, calling me, reminding me that I promised it would be next…and maybe it will be. But maybe not as well. I have so many conflicting projects and goals pulling me – slowly and steadily build inventory; knit up the stash and make me some warm things; make more pretty jewelry because I love playing with the beads; try some of the ornament patterns I have bookmarked… which could also be inventory building, right?
I barely have time to go to work. And it is so cold out there, I really don’t want to…
