It kind of feels like it. The days are quite warm, well into the 50’s, even 60… the nights are cooler, but not bitter. It could be a prank and we could be back in the single digits with snow blowing around us next week. Or it could keep on like this and things could thaw out and it could be an early spring. Only time will tell, but I am itching to plant flowers and start seeds.
I won’t do it yet. I don’t have a pick ax.
I keep knitting and spinning. Both are creeping along, as you might expect from big projects, lots of time spent, not a lot of noticeable progress. My fingers are itching to cast on a new project, anything bright and cheerful and fast. I won’t let them do it, I know that road. That road leads to projects dragging on for years, even being forgotten.
Instead I just go to my queue on Ravelry and look at all the patterns I plan to make, and the yarn I plan to make them with and I rearrange the order of the queue, maybe add a pair of socks. But I don’t wind yarn and cast on. Not yet.
The next few weeks of work are tediously long, BUT I think I did the math properly and I might get a day off mid-week next week. Here’s hoping. Sunday we have a fundraising event in the morning, Monday is a tax day, Tuesday I have to take minutes at our board meeting, and pick up the sandwiches, etc for that. The coworkers who usually do those two chores are going to a conference. So that will be a late evening home. And Friday is another tax day. I certainly feel like I will need a day off to make up for all the extra hours! I wish it could be Friday or Monday, but that’s how it goes sometimes.
There really isn’t anything else new here, and no pictures of knitting that looks the same as it did last week…but maybe next week there will be progress to show? I am almost to the heel of my sock – woot woot! Good times. Exciting times.
How about you? Are you ready for spring and a change in your daily routine?
