The last time I was such a serious knitter was in my university days. By serious I mean completing more than one dish cloth or scarf here and there. Ginny’s Yarn Along has been such a great source of inspiration and motivation. I love checking out other knitters’ projects and I’m amazed to see how many yarn-alongers there are out there.
This week I’ve been knitting Sweetpea’s Sorello shirt. Ravelry is such a fun place to get patterns. I’ve discovered that I really like seamless tops; it’s fun to see how they turn out. I’ve also noticed that Ravelry has groups you can join – anybody belong to a fun Ravelry group?
We just ordered 35 chicks and they’ll arrive April 28th. We don’t have room in our backyard to raise chickens (the rabbits have already made their claim), so the plan is to set them up for the first few weeks in our basement in a brooder and then bring them out to my parents’ acreage. My parents have being dreaming of building a chicken coop for a while and it looks like those plans will finally become a reality!
