Where Did January Go?


Evil Kitten

OMG, what happened, it can't be the end of January already! I have so much to do! 3 birthday's in February, Valentine's Day gifts to make, an Arts & Crafts show to go to in Asheville, NC and I need to alter some clothes! I have nothing to wear!
Plus look at my evil kitten who is not helping me get any work done. This was me trying to make a shirt for my niece's birthday gift! I have 4 of 7 parts done! I'm hoping she's all tuckered out from harassing me this afternoon, so I can get work done this evening!
I visited my neighbor last night and I learned so much I just have to share! She bought this awesome book called The Knitter's Book of Yarn. Which tells you everything you could ever want to know about yarn, there weights, how warm they are, etc... I learned that wool is not the friend I thought it was. It will not keep me as warm as angora from a rabbit. Which is 8 times warmer than wool! Seriously that's a lot when it's in the negative numbers! Or alpaca which I think is eight times warmer than wool but is much denser so an alpaca sweater will weigh a ton compared to a wool sweater! The info can go on and on. So I need this book but it has to wait until I have the time to sit and read! I can tell there will be some serious knitting changes around here in the up coming year!
So good bye January, Helloooooo February!

Oh! I just checked that book out the the library and it is amazing! I think I'm going to have to buy it.
I agree about January. My husband was complaining the other day about how long Winter was and I thought he was crazy! It's almost over already! And I'm not ready!

I guess that cat is having some thrill in there.
