Speaking of moving in the right direction, have you noticed the days are getting longer? We are also moving towards the spring equinox on March 20, 2016. Are you being self-indulgent yet? Have you pulled out that special something and knit a few stitches? If you haven't, stop by our Ravelry group here to find out who else is doing some self-indulgent knitting. Or perhaps pop in here to see all the finished self-indulgent projects. It's a fun thread to scroll through and so far, 44 of you are playing along. Yay us! :) The Self-indulgent KAL #sikal2016 will come to an end at the equinox, so there is still a few weeks to join the fun.
Gayle and I will be at StitchesWest in a few weeks. We'll be having an informal get-together on Saturday afternoon in the bar area of the hotel/convention center, as well as making the rounds in booths including Western Sky Knits and Dragonfly Fibers. If you see us there, don't hesitate to say hi!
