I can’t believe it took this long for the first snowfall of the season. What is it about snow that instantly makes me feel like a 5-year-old again? Everytime I glanced out the window yesterday and saw the snow coming down, I would burst into spontaneous giggle fits. I know – hard to believe, no? [I didn’t claim it was a particularly IMPRESSIVE snowfall – we probably got between 1.5 and 2 inches]
This weekend, I went to my first stash swap/knit night with a combo of strangers and friends co-hosted by Snargle and Vibegrrl. Unfortunately, since we got there kind of late, I didn’t really get a chance to talk to the folks I didn’t know very well, but I assume I’ll see most of them again at MD Sheep & Wool in a few months. The swap was crazy! I didn’t really dive in – I left that to the pros – but I did pick up a couple of balls of wool for hats. Unfortunately, I couldn’t get to my camera – it was buried in a corner someplace, but you can check out others’ pics here and here. Despite the fact that I occasionally turned into my usual introverted self (hush Stick!), I had a great time!
I decided to take yesterday off from the gym, laboring under the delusion that this week would be when I would start getting up to go workout before work. That was, of course, before the wintry mix descended upon greater Washington DC and I decided not to get out of bed. Perhaps I’ll try again tomorrow. I really do prefer going to the gym in the morning, but it’s SO HARD. I’m just not a morning person by ANY stretch of the imagination.
EJ and I braved the elements to go to our friend Pam’s house to knit and watch football yesterday afternoon [GO BEARS!]. We ended up teaching a couple of people how to knit and I managed to get a FO out of the deal! I know! Two in one week! I finally finished my cousin’s so-called Christmas present. I’m glad I decided to go with the fringe, despite not being a fringe-y person myself. Hard to believe I actually get to knock something off my UFO Resurrection to-do list. Other items on this list (that I haven’t blocked from my mind):
Finally, my favorite Saturday Sky pic to date:
