Strange – I’ve gone most of my cold winter hibernation not having the desire to really sit down and knit or spin. And then the other day it really hit me hard, so I finished this pair of socks I’ve been working on for what feels like forever. And I sat down at the wheel to spin, and now I’m 3/4ths of the way done with the plum fiber I was working on. And I ordered new fiber (not that I needed it).
We got a lovely snow yesterday, though the roads were awful, and they’re calling for more snow overnight tonight. I have a project to keep busy this weekend – painting our home office. I had a hard time picking out a color, and I finally decided on one called “Satin Weave” – but now I’m second-guessing myself because in the store the paint chip looked a lot more yellow than the off white/tan I wanted. But I did the whole “tape the chip to the wall in the room” thing to make sure it looked right throughout the day, and it did, so we’ll see. I have to tape and prime the walls first (paneling, not my favorite thing to paint over but I certainly have more than my fair share of experience with it). Hopefully, when all is said and done, I’ll come away with a really lovely new color for the office so I can sew and craft and work feeling more at home and less like I’m in a dark cave.
