The holiday merry making is over and now it’s back to work. Ugh. I do have two things to tell you about that might help you start your new year off right, though. They are fun things that you and I can do together.
First there is NaSpiMoMo. This is the brain child of Margene, although I did make the button and I’m helping her administer the Ravelry group. (Speaking of the button, I used a photo that Maryse took of my wheel as the background. I want to take photos just like Maryse when I grow up.) Anyway, the idea behind NaSpiMoMo is to spin as much as you can in January. That’s it. No rules, no contests, no give aways, just spinning. You can’t go wrong with that! I hope you’ll join us.
Second there is the ABC Along 2008. It’s back and it’s all thanks to Vicki. If you missed this in 2006 now is your chance to join up. To quote directly from the Ravelry group, “Members in this year-long group . . . post a photo to their blog and/or the Flickr group every two weeks to correspond with a letter of the alphabet. Photos can be related to fiber, but do not have to be; they should reflect the personality of the photographer, and something of importance or meaning to them. Post at least one photo in each 2-week period to match the corresponding letter of the alphabet.”
Don’t those two groups sound like fun? And we could all use a little fun to get us through the bleak midwinter!
