Above---the half-finished garden bed to honor my very first motorcycle, a 1971 Honda CB 450. ---the snow tidies it up beautifully! We're down to 4 or so hours of daylight now. I took a nap around 2pm and missed the actual sunlight of the day!
My only productivity this week has been making this hat---knitted with Lion Brand Wool Ease. Yes, yes---I am kind of a yarn snob, and this yarn doesn't actually fit into that attitude! Turns out I'm just that wee bit allergic to wool in most of it's forms...so this acrylic blend stuff doesn't itch. I LOVE knitting in the winter! It totally sastisfies this OCD side of me, too. Curling up on the couch, cold outside, good movie (lately renting episodes of Fringe) and knitting. I do wonder if it gives me a false sense of productivity, however. Siphoning off a little of that creative angst, maybe?? Haha. No worries---knitting can never take the place of painting for me.
Happy December, ya'll. I hope you're each finding some satisfying winter creativity wherever you are.
