Does it feel as if there will be a change? A warming of the earth, the spirit, the heart and maybe, just maybe a thaw of all the snow and ice? The next few days look to be warmer than the whole of the last two months and I am so hopeful we will see signs of spring. I've heard birds and seen them bouncing around the trees and, just yesterday, I saw spears peeking through the earth in a neighbors yard. I do believe they'll have crocus soon! I still have a foot of snow at my front door and 6" on my patio.
I missed Yarn Along as we had a major computer failure in my office (yes, I do a fair amount of writing from work) and a couple of my evenings were spent with grrlfriends, which left me no time to blog. Let me tell you how boring, and full of angst, an office can be when there is so much is unknown and there is no connection, except by phone, to the outside world. A stand still is not good in the work world. big sigh We are SO grateful IT was able to work out the problems. But I feel like that March Hare. I'm late!
Two things I love most are knitting and reading, just as it is for Ginny and so many of you. The sleeve of Chicane is going well and the construction continues to be unique and interesting. More time spent with the needles would yeild faster results, but the sleeve is growing. The book group I belong to is reading Angle of Repose over the next two months (it's a big book). I read it years ago, loved it, and I'm happy to be reading it again.
That sweater looks fascinating. Is that the arm/shoulder join?

Chicane looks blue against the rocks. I hope you get your warm up and sunshine. It's amazing how much that helps and I hope to find out myself someday soon;-p Have a wonderful weekend. Have fun and get some serious relaxation in there, too. IT problems are so stressful!

Computer problems at work are a major pain, glad all is well again. I have daffodil shoots - hooray!

I'm just so happy to be writing 3-1-13 today! It appears to be coming in like a lamb (though there's a bit of snow flying around), but it could come in like anything and I'd be fine. ;)
Happy weekend, Margene!

You and my mother both shared the misery of no computer for a few days. At least she wasn't tied to a desk for hours.

So far our changes have been colder and more snow (though not a lot so far). Computer problems are never good - must be something going around ;)

It's amazing how quickly we begin to feel disconnected, isn't it?! I hope you and Smith have a lovely weekend.

I promise spring really is coming. Whether we're ready or not. No, not all hearts warm and that's for the best. ;^) Knitting looks lovely and I am so glad you're back online. It's just not the same without you.

Ahhh. March. At last! Angle of Repose is up next on my reading list! It is one of my favorite books ever . . . and I decided to treat myself to a re-read after the slog I'm putting myself through right now (with The Children's Book). Can't wait to see the sleeve.

Angle of Repose is in my pile; a student gave it to me as a gift and I've yet to turn a page! I'm enjoying the Audible How to be an American Housewife right now - as I tink back thirteen rows of lace - ARG!
