Your mileage may vary but to me it felt like January just draggggged itself out longer than usual. I did my best with the hygge and the savoring but I can’t say I’m sorry to say goodbye to January. And that means HELLOOoooo to February! And here are three things I’m looking forward to this month.
- School vacation week. Dale is off and I’m planning on taking the week off as well. I don’t think we’ll be traveling anywhere but it means we don’t have to get up at o’dark thirty and hopefully we can get cracking on painting a room that we’ve been putting off for way too long. And by we I mean that I will do things like select paint colors and supervise while he does all of the actual, you know, work.
- SPA. It’s at the tail end of that vacation week and I’m so ready to go to Maine with friends. To hang out and spin (which I haven’t done since last SPA, I think), to knit and tell stories and laugh, to walk around Freeport and shop, to eat and drink and just do whatever we have a mind to do.
- New knitting projects. The first clue for the TTL Mystery Sock 2018 is released today and I’m planning on starting tomorrow. I’m also planning on joining Berroco Knit a Lopi sweater knit-a-long. I’ve narrowed my choice down to either Skógafjall or Iðunn. I’m leaning towards Iðunn but I need to make sure I have enough yarn – I ordered 2 sweaters worth when I knit my Stopover but Iðunn is longer and I don’t know if I’ve got enough. I’ll be making a decision first thing tomorrow, I think, so feel free to weigh in on this one. Whichever I choose, I will counting this project as part of the Team Rules Schmules group that Vicki and Terry started as part of the Knitting Olympics.
February is getting to off to a great start, I think. And it’s a short month which means it will be March before we know it – and March brings the first day of SPRING.
