When I let the dogs out, it had started to snow. They say we won't have much snow this time - only 2-4 inches. With the thin crust of sleet underneath, I'm not sure I want to try to drive to work tomorrow, especially since it won't get above 20 degrees today.
Sock Madness 8 begins anytime. The specifications for Round 1 came out yesterday morning and that means the pattern will be released sometime within 48 hours of then. I have 2 weeks to knit that first pair in order to get onto a team. Piece of cake! I've found that it's when we get to Round 3, 4, & 5 that I falter - mainly because I don't knit as fast as a lot of the other knitters from around the world. And this IS, after all, a speed competition!
As usual, I made several project bags to donate for prizes. I did 2 embroidered ones - I'm particularly fond of the seahorse one. Might need to make one for myself.
And these 6 lines drawstring ones. They go together fairly quickly. I spent all day yesterday making 4 of them. Not to be bragging or anything, but my project bags are very popular during Sock Madness competitions! I try a different style each year and each year they go over quite well. This year is no exception.
Well, time to get dressed...it's after noon and I still need to get the trash gathered and clean out the litter box and get everything out to the trash for pick up day. I slept in later than usual and always need to have a fortifying mug of Irish breakfast tea to get started.
Thanks for stopping by. I'll let you know how March ends - hopefully like a lamb and not a lion!
