There’s only a month left for me to finish a nalbinding hat for Bill’s birthday in March. It’s hard to keep this kind of gift a secret when I keep asking him to try it on. But he bought into my family’s tradition of “gift amnesia” years ago and applies selective memory as needed.
He might be a little surprised, though, after all the upheaval of recent weeks, if I actually get it done in time. But it’ll be tough for him to pretend he didn’t know: I have to use his head to block it on when I full the finished hat.
February kind of snuck up on me and I just got the calendar flipped today. But there’s a lot of great stuff on this page. For one thing, February is when registration opens for Sievers classes.
I teach Local Color To Wear at Sievers July 16-20, 2016.
Then I go back to Sievers October 11-15 for the Natural Dye Retreat.
But the main thing to celebrate in February is that life is settling into a new normal. I even managed to finish a small gift for a February birthday. OK, I finished something that was supposed to be a Christmas present until November when it became clear there would be no finishing anything by Christmas.
It isn’t wrapped yet, so there’s still time for this gift to be late. But the actual knitting came at a great time. Any version of “normal” needs a project or three sitting by my chair.
