I had not intended to wait so long to post this weekend but I got busy. The lengthening days with the extra minutes of daylight are having the desired effect of waking me from my hibernation*. After running errands, getting a massage, and general galavanting in Madison on Friday, Saturday found me in my studio---cleaning and straightening. I should say starting to clean because the winter (it wasn't me, it was WINTER) left that room a Mess. I cataloged more of my stash and entered it into Ravelry. I have several (ahem) sweaters' worth of stash....which are now neatly tucked away in little plastic bin/drawers that were on sale at Shopko on Friday. I still have a ways to go on that room today but I can see most of the floor now.
I took time out from finding the studio's floor to walk around outside. We have some crocus blooming on the south side of the house.
The soil is still rather wet and cold, so I won't be planting any seeds for a few weeks. Even with the wait, I find it heartening that the raised beds shed their cover of snow and will be warming up as they were designed to do.
I also started my Forest Canopy Shawl. I'm Knitting with Nora in a very relaxed, no rules KAL. If you are inclined, please join us! I'm using Fleece Artist Sea Wool in the most appropriate Woodlands colorway. I've knit up through row 12 of the set-up. I am enjoying the yarn and the pattern. Good pattern
campaign suggestion, Stacey!
*Now if I only had come out of hibernation a few pounds lighter, like a real bear. *grin*
