Longing for spring

I don't think I have ever seen so much snow before. More comes at least weekly! However, we have beautiful sunlight here almost every day, which is very different than Michigan or Indiana.
We have workshops here to keep us busy during the long winter months. I have been leading a felting group, and here pictured are some of our recent projects. I hope to get more photos of the felting class posted eventually. My favorite workshops are in the weavery, and one of these days I will remember to bring my camera. I am thoroughly enjoying learning to weave. Not that I needed another fiber hobby!

I have been knitting... everywhere, it seems. I am currently working on a cardigan from a recent Interweave Knits magazine, and also another pair of spiral socks. Both are nearing completion, but here is an early phot of the socks.

Icy Blue

It looks like my online world skipped directly from summer to winter! I assure you, there were quite a few very long months of transition in between the two seasons. After three months in New Hampshire we have settled in remarkably well. C is enjoying her lovely local Waldorf School kindergarten, and J is happy in the predictable routine and social life of our household. We (my husband and I) have become houseparents at a community for developmentally disabled adults. We now have a much larger household to run, and that has taken some adjustment. The rewards are great however, and include the view above. My knitting hasn't suffered so far, but our internet connection has. Very infrequent decent connection means this is my first post in 4 months! I hope to get online more often in the months to come. Keep checking in!
