Spring Is Here! You Know What That Means...
HAPPY SPRINGTIME! You know what it means when spring arrives, right? You start knitting stuff for next winter. Oh, wait. I mean you KEEP knitting stuff for next winter. Or the following winter. Really, who cares when you get it done? Just as long as you're knitting.
Even though I have done deadline knitting, I'm increasingly better at not falling into that nerve wracking trap. Knitting is for RELAXING not FRETTING. I figure this year, if I'm lucky, I'll knock out one sweater and one ginormous shawl-- both entirely done in tediously repetitious garter stitch, which I tell myself is meditative. And maybe I'll get to knit a couple of pairs of socks-- I'm on a Freia Yarn kick and am dreaming of doing one pair that is inspired by UPS drivers' socks. You know that certain brown and that certain gold? I love that combo.
Speaking of love... I never get tired of how often people send me knitting related pictures and news articles. Everyone on Facebook knows I knit. So they send me stuff like the picture above. And they request projects like the picture below, which I recently finished for a friend's baby.
And then there's this one, from the archives:
How about you? Do your friends and family send you every single knitting-related article and object and picture they come across? What was the strangest one?
Before I sign off here and go dance in the sunshine, I'd be remiss if I didn't remind you-- WE STILL HAVE A FEW OPENINGS for our Knitting and Yoga Adventures weeklong trip to Monhegan Island in September. You really ought to join us. SO FUN.
