There is so much on my desk right now - and even on my needles - that I just can't tell you about yet! Because there are some really great and fun things in the works for this coming year. I'm excited to share them all with you when the time is right. Soon! Until then, know that I'm busily working away on some good things when I'm a little bit quiet in this space.
There is that nearly done sweater though that I CAN talk about. I'm very happy to be casting off for that soon - maybe even today if the knitting stars align for me. It's Mountain High and I am so in love with it so far (I've stopped to try it on more times than really is necessary for proper fitting). As love as I am with the sweater, and the yarn (ours!), I will be happy to be done with the gray. It is late January after all, and with a whole lot of ice and gray skies outside our window, I could use an infusion of color. It might not help that I'm currently reading Lincoln's Melancholy: How Depression Challenged a President and Fueled His Greatness - a fascinating book, but perhaps not the best tone for such a time of year in Maine (especially after I add my daily newspaper reading). I think it might be time to set that particular book aside until the green grass appears, and opt for a happy, fantastical fairy tale instead.
Yes, that's that. I've just decided that when this sweater is off the needles, I shall knit something colorful. February needs a rainbow!
