If you're wondering about the large size avatar on the previous post, it's because I was trying to enlarge my little blogger picture and somehow or another I took the animation out of the little picture and posted a large size one. I don't know how I did this and now I believe in that little saying, "If it's not broke, don't fix it" Wisdom seems to always come with giant mess up (well for me the 5th mess up usually kicks in wisdom)(I was born hard headed -smiles-)
The epic stash herding is still in effect. It's gonna take me a few days 'cause I keep stopping and saying, "Hey, I forgot I had that!" and then move to the computer to see what patterns might be nice for it. I'm looking to finish by the spring 'cause I keep getting distracted by yarn. It's a lovely vicious cycle, and I am in its vortex, baby!! (help me....lol)
Winter is in full effect here. We are in the grips of bitter cold, impending snow and more bitter cold. Folks are getting tired of the snow, ice and cold but I look at it this way; "It's winter people, get over it!!" Also dressing warmly like a sane person might make it easier to bear the cold. I look at people who think hoodies and long johns are enough to deal with the winter's chill and I think, Frostbite Victims Walkin' news at 11. My favorite thing this winter...100% wool hiking socks. No, I did not knit them and yes yes yes they are sooooo warm on the feet. Picked them up at I Goldberg's, a store that sells hiking, camping, military stuff etc... I no longer have cold feet and they keep me warm even in sneakers (my footwear of choice) I highly recommend for those folks who must endure extended time outdoors and do not want to wear boots.
Gonna get me some hot chocolate and then I'm gonna hit the road. I ain't scared of no stinkin' cold!!! (smiles)
