Giving up something for Lent?

Make mine snow, please.

Yes, I will suffer through and give up snow for Lent.  I know, it will be difficult, but I will try and persevere!

Yeah.  I know.  I’ll let you all know how that works!

Well, in the reality of things, we have gotten volumes of snow this year thus far.  And, we have a good chunk of February and all of March to get through yet.

Oh boy.

Well, the good thing about all this snow is that it makes for good knitting weather.

I can work on depleting some of the wool that is living in my stash.

I am taking a class on Selbuvotter mittens coming up in March.  That is something that will be fun to do in this frigid weather.

I also need to get knitting on another BSJ – my girlfriend is having a baby and they just found out it is a boy.  I’d like to knit it out of something a bit larger than sock weight yarn.  I will have to keep my eyes open for the perfect yarn and get that worked up.  They have about 20 more weeks to go, so my thought process is to have a bit of a bigger sweater so he can wear it this fall.  There is a plan, huh?  Maybe some Dream in Color Classy – mmmmm, I have not knit with that, but I love how it feels!  That could be perfect!

I am in Lynne’s May Sock Swap and I have found my pattern, I have ordered my yarn and I am itching to get knitting on my pal’s socks.  I am so excited about this!  I loved Bloomin’ Feet and I was blessed to be able to knit for Lynne, so I am excited to be thinking about my new pal as I am knitting socks for her.

And, I have just one more item to get for my Special Swap Pal for her Spa package – I hope to have my package out and on it’s way to her early next week.

Stay warm and have a good night all!

  1. How about taking something on for lent? Where I live I took on several inches of snow last night. The gifts you don’t even ask for.

    BTW, I found your site through the writings from the wilderness site.
