January was such a stinker it wasn't worth blogging about. Ha! Thankfully Chinese New Year happened at the end of the month and helped turn the bad energy around.
Today we woke up to another deep snow.
Thankfully this did not delay my long awaited shipment from yarn.com. The UPS guy was super nice and walked all the way up my driveway!
I had decided to participate in the Cascade Yarns Knitterati Afghan Knit-along and after much agonizing I realized the quickest way to settling my yarn problem was to order a kit.This is always painful when you are already sitting on as much yarn as I am.
I decided to go with the "Jewel" 5 color option rather than the "Original." Cascade Yarns actually posted several color alternatives. It has been fun to follow on Ravelry as block 1 and block 2 have already released. It is great to see the variation. I have some catching up to do!
The electric blanket has been working overtime. As always, I am ready for summer. Leela is probably ambivalent as long as the bed is kept warm. Mostly I could do with more light and longer days.
