Another week has come and gone. In many ways it has been a trying week. One of my daughters (Courtney) is having a hard time with another girl who has been harassing her to the nth degree. Not much bothers Courtney, but the constant harassment is wearing her down and as a Mom it has been REALLY hard for me to sit back and let her handle it. This other girl really seems to have some issues, which is sad....but.....still.....
Courtney has a good head on her shoulders and I know if she really needs me to step in she will ask, but it's stressful for a Mom all the same. Sheesh......
Ok.......on to better things. It's been REALLY cold up here in the mountains this winter. Most nights have been 15-25 degrees below zero. Even I, who loves winter, is ready for it to warm up a bit.
I'm not one to wear scarves that often but with this cold weather my neck does get cold. Remembering how much I liked the first Spiralucious, I made one for me this time. It keeps my neck nice and warm without scarf ends to deal with. :).
There has been a little knitting here. I have some socks on the needles, but the call of the Beaverslide has just been too darn hard to ignore. Besides it's good to balance working with little needles with sweater size needles...right?
This morning after I finished Spiralucious, I sat down and swatched the Beaverslide for Acer. Whoo hoo....I got gauge with the recommended needles.
I do need to work on twisted vines, but I really haven't felt like taking the time to pull her back to find where I was on the pattern before I lost my place. Maybe if I have some quiet time over the weekend, but until then, I am looking forward to working with this scrumptious yarn!
NETA Spa Weekend
Many of you have heard of the SPA weekend that NETA puts on every February.
It's a FUN weekend and one that I have vended at for the last few years. This year it is the last weekend of February in Freeport Maine and promises to be another fun fibery weekend.
It's been fun having an excuse to fire up the dyepots for roving once again. I haven't a name yet for this colorway, which is ok...I like it enough that it just might stay. :)
I hope to see a few familiar happy faces that weekend!
