Cocooning...

Captured by my daughter, sometime earlier this month...

(Is that a word, cocooning? ) That sort of sums up how I've been feeling the last two months. Living in a cocoon, not feeling like communicating with anyone. Nothing bad, just being quiet. Just me and my knitting... (see my Ravelry  page)

Winter has come and gone, but spring hasn't arrived yet. We are so many weeks behind schedule. Lots of rain, and clouds and only a couple of hours of sun. (and those hours felt soooo good!) 

The kids each came home for a week, but only at the same time for a couple of overlapping days. Nice to have them each for ourselves. The two of us had a great roadtrip to central Oregon in February visiting Mr. G's middle brother and wife. Good times and several beers were had...

Now we're getting closer to our Spring Break. We're thinking of spending a couple of days near or in Port Townsend and maybe a cheeky visit to the Dutch/ British/ Scandinavian grocery store in Poulsbo on the way there. My licorice stock (= drop) is nearing its end...

It called for a light DK, but I'm using a sock weight yarn by Madeline Tosh in the colorway 'Asphalt'. I'm loving all the colorful bits in it. Her's to hoping that my gamble will be paying off...

  1. Wat fijn om weer van je te horen, ik heb aan je gedacht.. De foto is echt prachtig, zo verstild, hij weerspiegelt de periode waar je in zat. Nog even wachten, dan breekt de lente los en hopelijk horen we dan weer vaker van je. Laat je ook zien wat je gebreid hebt? Lieve groeten!!
