Clear sunlight on falling snow; fire and ice.
Bare-boned trees stark to the horizon,
Cold marshes, havens to ducks and geese.
A groundhog sits motionless on a post.
The ground hog is a wise little animal to sit and just absorb time. My time to sit and absorb will be a few weeks away but I am looking forward to it.
This month is always a busy time for me, but a business that I enjoy so I don't complain. I will be honest with you though, I was doing some serious complaining a few days ago about knitting cables.
Anne is such a dear friend who always comes up with a beautiful pattern for me to bring to SPA. I will admit though when I saw the new French Quarter pattern that was sporting a lot of cables my heart dropped a bit. Not because I do not love cables because I do, but I am THE world's slowest cable knitter....so as I was whining a bit to Terry about feeling a bit homicidal using size 0 needles and slick yarn, she sent me this video....
OMG............I could have dropped on the ground and hero worshiped her...let me tell you. I went from feeling like poking my eyes out with my teeny double points to actually staying up late last night because I didn't want to put my knitting down. Grrls....if you are still using a cable needle...put it down and go check out the video. It is SO worth it!
Yes, little Miss Ellie is starting to give her Mum a break now and then. This week brings the introduction to food. We start out slowly with a milk mixture and then slowly add a little bit of baby cereal to it. Tomorrow she will get a mix of milk soaked puppy food, which will be easy peasy for her as this little girl is definitely her mother's daughter....she likes her chow for sure!
