I feel as though the earth has tilted and I'm in a different zone now It was in the 60's yesterday! In February! After Phil predicted 6 more weeks of winter...
We've had heavy fog, heavy rain and mild temps. The birds are singing Spring songs and our backyard is one giant sponge (that is where it isn't pools of water).
I shouldn't really be surprised as this happens a lot of years. I'm just hoping it doesn't come back to bite us. This entire week is supposed to be very mild. Colin is hoping we can be outside Thursday and enjoy a fire in the pit.
Before we know it, gardening season will be here. Yesterday while I was knitting, Fletch was busy planting some seeds in a starter tray:
I believe he was planting carnival peppers - a type of habanero that can be various colors - all on the same plant: red, orange, green, purple, etc. Should be fun.
Saturday I drove up to Lahaska to meet Dee at Twist a very lovely LYS just outside of New Hope. Of course I managed to add a little bit to my stash:
The yarn on the right is Madeline Tosh and the colorway is Tart. This will be for socks for Fletch (he didn't like the skein I bought the last time with him in mind....he does really like this one). The multi-colored skein on the left is Cascade Heritage in a wool/silk blend. I just loved how there are so many different colors in this skein. Socks for me!! After shopping Dee and I hung out in a coffee shop in Peddler's Village. What a relaxing, fun day!
And here is where Sigla was last night:
I managed to get the ribbing done at the bottom last night and I am ready to cast off! I did attempt to try it on over the weekend, forgetting that the circular needle I'm using is 32" - no way that will go around my upper body - LOL. Luckily no stitches popped off when I attempted the try-on. I'm anxious to bind of and try it on. I measured a lot, and I'm 95% sure it will be as loose as I want. I should know tonight when I bind off after yoga.
A gloomy, grey outside and I need to buckle down and do some work. Hope you all have a wonderful week!
