Spring! AMEN.

It appears as if the never-ending Winter is receeding and Spring is emerging.

A self-imposed KNITTING HIATUS has finally reached it's end. Had to focus on class work for a license I was testing for. Now, I am focusing on finishing the socks I started during the Eisenhower Administration.

Next up... MARYLAND SHEEP & WOOL FESTIVAL!! I will be working the booth with Toni Neal of The Fold (Marengo, IL) who is the real-world distributor of Blue Moon Fiber Arts "SOCKS THAT ROCK" sock yarn.

I avoided Socks That Rock

I avoided Socks That Rock last year at MD because of the line, but this time I'll make a point to drop by!

I don't want to even think about how long those socks have been in limbo...I'm glad for your knitting hiatus being finished!

Good to hear from you, Thor.

Good to hear from you, Thor. I noticed today that the daffodils have magically appeared as I never noticed them over the weekend. Yippee...maybe Spring has indeed arrived in Wyoming. -- Books, knitting, cats, fountain pens...Life is Good.

I heard about the Maryland

I heard about the Maryland Sheep & Wool from people I met at a Sox weekend on Chincoteague Island. I will have to try to plan to go next year. My wife and I are planning on attending the NC Fiber Festival May 21-23 in Raleigh. I am hoping that it will be great. It has supposedly doubled in size from last year.

tho it seems that winter

tho it seems that winter has, as usual, been going on for a few decades, "spring" in my local area is 4 to six weeks in advance of "normal" in many respects.

we seem to have skipped "mud season" - which usually occupies a couple of months between "hard freeze" and "frost free"
