I hear rumors of very cold temperatures and more snow....
I hate to admit it, but it is not even February and I am already thinking of spring. It is going to be a long haul if I don't get a better attitude.Hobby Farms had an article that shared 7 ideas for beating the winter blahs
*Connect-draw inspiration and learn from farmers
*Expose-expose yourself to new perspectives
*Pamper-give your body some TLC
*Play-put some fun into your day
From that list, I have been putting together a list of projects to work on to get through the long winter days ahead.
Knitting: Great winter project-I just need to move on from scarves and dishcloths. I get caught in my comfort zone and have a hard time moving forward. On to more challenging things. Any ideas for a novice knitter?
Hand Spinning- My wheel has been dusted off and has been in use quite a bit this winter. I am still working on the Tunis Roving, Mike processed for me. It is getting a little easier. My goal is to spin the yarn, dye the yarn, knit the yarn. I am thinking, maybe a hat for Mike. He would appreciate it, even with all of the mistakes it is bound to have.
Soap Making: I am getting ready to make my second batch. I am down to three bars from the first batch. I just need to remember to add more lemongrass this time.
My house could use some organizing, Sheep registrations could get filled out, we'll see....
How are you beating the winter blahs??
