Moderation in all things.

The next knit-along at Cloverhill doesn’t start until February 1st. This means that I have just under a month to work on other knitting. Despite the fact that I have some lovely Alpaca Lace in meri colors staring at me (really, it’s on my desk; I should get it some googly eyes), I am going to try to hold off on starting any new projects. Instead, I will work on wrapping up old projects. Really, there are just three: the Peter Easy vest for Shamamama, Missy’s cowl, and my Clara cardigan (which I really wish I had finished today, because it’s 63°F in my office).

Of course, all bets are off once the yarn for Shipwreck shows up. But really, I’d like to finish at least the vest and the cowl before I dive into any new knitting.

We’ll see how this goes. I’m currently fighting a, “Must start ALL THE PROJECTS!” urge, so I may not get far. But a girl can hope.

Dorky layout realization of the day.

If you’ve paid attention at all over the last n years, you know that one of the things I do is design custom planners. So, I spend a lot of time creating calendars of various sorts. I was working on one today, and I stumbled upon something:

If you’re one of the people whose calendar weeks run Sunday – Saturday, then February 2015 fits exactly into a 4-week spread. I don’t think I’ve encountered that before, or at least, it never stuck out enough to be noticed before.

That’s all. Nothing overly interesting. I said it was a dorky realization, didn’t I? And yet you read on. You have nobody to blame but yourself.
