Spring is in the air???

We had a touch of Spring this past week as the temperature reached 60 degrees F. It was short lived as it reached a low of 28 degrees F that same night. This week coming it is supposed to be quite chilly, tomorrow at the bus stop it will be a balmy 17 degrees. The reason I bring up this crazy New England weather is because finally, I got around crocheting my boboletta last night. I am determined to finish it before the official start of spring, so I can at least wear my sweater once before the warmer weather. I started this sweater on January 12th...but have not consistently worked on this for weeks. My only excuse is that I started watching Buffy The Vampire Slayer series on dvd. It is such a jam packed hour, that I can not crochet or surf the net while watching...or I will seriously miss an important detail. And, I guess there would be time to fit in crochet as well during the evening if I stopped at just one episode a night, but this is not the case. I end up watching 3 or 4 episodes a night. It is so addicting. A friend of mine got me I never was into the series when it hit the airwaves in 1997. Just to good.

I have not forgotten about crochet completely. I have been busy organizing my new craft room. We finished remodeling our basement, so the boys have a new playroom downstairs. So, the playroom upstairs became available for me to take over! I started to organize my yarns. That is no easy feat. I have a lot of cottons and acrylics. I have been really disciplined since the first of the year and have not bought any new yarns. Obviously, I have really not started any new projects...but that is besides the point ;) I am trying to make my craft room an oasis. I have some pretty scented candles...planning on perhaps getting a big comfy chair and possibly an area rug. I have taken all my crochet books and magazines and neatly placed them on a shelf. It is getting there.

Have not forgotten about you...but i would hate to bore you with non crochet stories. especially since there are no new crochet stories. But alas, I really need to finish some projects and move on to new ones.
