Well, our internet has been down now since last Saturday and I am realizing how dependent I am on it, and am feeling quite disconnected in so many ways. I finally got off work a little early today (5 p.m.) and packed up the laptop and am now sitting at Panera trying to catch up on emails; blogs; ravelry; paying bills etc.. Probably should have worn my P.J.'s and just spent the night!!
Yes, winter continues. Yesterday it was 40 below zero here with the windchill. 40 below. That's just crazy. I'm ready to ask Allison if she has a guest room I can rent out there in California! (Her blog is always full of beautiful flower pictures.. go check out the daffodils!!) I'm pretty sure she won't be jealous of my ice laden icicle lights hanging from my roof!!
But sunshine comes in many forms! This week I was honored to be one of Sheri's first Loopy Legends with a yarn colorway named just after me!! It is called 'Janice's Sunshine in Winter' and is beautiful! She is sending me a skein and I can't wait to knit it into something special!
I also received the last installment of the inaugural year of the Loopy Ewe Sock Club. All of the yarns and patterns have been great. I'm looking forward to collecting the ones from this coming year as well!! I think Sumo feels their should be a little doggy treat included in the package since he isn't allowed the Loopy kisses that are always included!
Not much else to report. Life is pretty much consumed with W2's; 1099's; Itemized Deductions etc... But it's all good.
Oh, and if you enjoy seeing baby lambs, check out Rohanknitter's blog.... scroll down to see some adorable pictures of the recent deliveries on their farm. There are some especially cute pictures of some triplets with one of the barn cats!! Too cute!!
Next post I'll have the finished Ballband bag and Lucy bag to show. Until then, stay warm!
Until Next Time.....
