Lots has been happening. I have not been writing about it. Part of the reason for my absence is due to my working through an addiction to the old Nintendo games like Boulder Dash and Super Mario Bros., which have been rediscovered on nintendo8.com.
And another part of the reason has been a general lack of inspiration. Maybe the long, cold, dull, boring, bleak winter finally sucked all of the creativity and words out of me.
This past weekend was abso-friggin-lutely amazingly wonderful. It was sunny and warm, and breezy and forced me out the door. I wandered Port Credit, and sat by the river and listened to Cast-On and worked on my real sock attempt, in yarn I like.
This yarn I got from Juno a while back. I'm knitting this using Wendy's toe-up sock pattern. The idea of a knitting a sock from the toe up just seems so logical and orderly that it appeals to the Scottish (cheap) engineer (methodical) in me. I can make the socks as tall as possible, without running out of yarn, and using every last inch.
I came out of the park with the toe of the sock completed, caught up on my podcasts, and the first sunburn of the season.
Winter is dead. Long live spring!
