January was a tough month for many of my family and friends. It seemed to fly by but also felt too long. I am happy to welcome a new month with slightly less fatigue and knee pain and a renewed enthusiasm for all things creative.
I tried to talk myself out of it, but I am such a fan of Kate Davies, her designs and her writing, that I could not resist signing up for Knitting Season. I didn’t buy the yarn or the journal, plenty of notebooks and stash around here. I am using a large Field Notes notebook for the weekly creative prompts. And this morning, I am starting the Weel Riggit hat.
And best of all on this first day of February, a soak in warm water, some serious squeezing to get out the excess moisture, and scrunching up instead of blocking, has brought my Vintersol back to a reasonable size. Thanks for all the good ideas and encouraging vibes. We have a spell of colder weather in the forecast so I am looking forward to wearing my sweater this weekend.
