The calendar went from February to March, I got in a fight with some stripes I was knitting and the needles were temporarily cast aside.  It’s been hard to maintain enthusiasm for some of my more wintery projects as signs of spring are popping up everywhere. (And did I mention I was fighting with some stripes?) So I went to my craft room and took a break from all things yarn and had fun playing with paper. Now I’m ready to refocus on my needles. I have an upcoming baby shower that’s a good excuse to knit up something fun and a determination to beat those stripes so that I can put that project behind me and cast on something to get me in a more spring-y state of mind.
