gettin' by with a little help from my friends...
Getting by. That's the best I can do at the moment. This winter is just dragging on something ridiculous, I have too much going on at work and the days are just too short. My "friends" would be two tubes of lipstick - (BOGO at Walgeens) that darn near match my La Digitessa colorway - I am hoping that lipstuff will help me feel gussied up enough tomorrow to face another below zero day. Aught to just brighten this pasty winter blah dontcha think?
Another thing that helps on a crummy day...
This is my Yarn4Socks installment of Yarntini - doesn't it looks like you should put a little umbrella in it, tune into some steel guitars and swim up to the bar for another? Wicked delicious. I ended up missing out on the first round of packages, I think I just got missed - so Yarn4Socks quickly sent me another. Did you see they have some yarn by The Woolen Rabbit teaming with Anne from the Knitspot for their April offering? Just letting you know - consider it a public service:)
I'm working away on my Stalkers - they seem to be my lunch time project for now. I am also working on some Evangelines by night. Just kind of immediate gratification, slightly relaxing knitting for now. It is helping to have low expectations as this season wears on. I'm getting by.
I did finish another book - Keeping Faith by Jodi Picoult - another winner, it wasn't The Pact - but good. This author seems to routinely choose a culture to explore...Wiccan, Native American, Eskimo, Amish - this time the backstory was religion - very compelling. A child who is experiencing unexplained religious ecstasy, stigmata - curious. I would say reading is a nice, quiet way to divert cabin fever.
One last thing - I am in love with this vest (in Parrot?) after seeing The Plucky Knitter wearing it - the yarn looks so squooshable. It makes me think I haven't given Fleece Artist a fair shake, maybe a study in Fleece Artist is in order. Remember, not a yarn diet - just being mindful and I have a MIND FULL! *giggle*
