I've got it bad. Let's just leave it at that. In an effort to fight right back, I decided to knit on the back porch for the last half hour. It is 25 degrees out and sunny. Vitamin D recharge. I'm going to see if I can make this a habit. No, not knitting........the Vitamin D dose.
My new earrings arrived today. I won them in a Valentine Ravelry Swap. Nancy of Sassafras Creations makes them out of knitting needles. I went for the artsy fartsy image today. They are very fun to wear. Very very light. Since the hat charity drive is over, I've been missing fun mail. Well, the gas bill was 70 dollars less than we budgeted for this month......that could be percieved as fun mail. And trust me, no one has been hurt from wearing their coats and hats in the house...
Something else arrived this weekend. Girl Scout cookies. When I was pregnant with Al, twenty one years ago, (her birthday is this friday) I gained 3 lbs this last week of gestation. My doctor said the weight was all mine, none of it the baby's. Well, the Girl Scout thin mints arrived this same week back then, too. I think I've already told you about the time I nearly knocked the Girl Scout down when she delivered them in a snowstorm by wagon..........there was no chocolate in the house and no hope of going out to get any....and yet, the bell rang and it was delivered.
As for my slow knitting, it is really slow. I hope to finally have a little FO to show you tomorrow.
Do you have cabin fever? Girl Scout cookies? A vitamin D trick?
I'll talk to you in the comments. :)
