Here it is, February 8, and I'm just now finding time to sit down and upload some pictures.
Last week I went up to visit my parents for a few days. They're having an even worse winter at the ranch than we are,
We've also been dealing with this:
We've also had some disturbing news. Boise is now one of the 5 finalists for the horrible F35 jets training ground, and if selected, 105 homeowners will be forced to sell their homes because the noise level will essentially condemn the area, and our house will be in a loud enough area to be completely and utterly miserable--not to mention the impact on our already problematic air quality issues. We'll find out within 2-3 months if Boise is one of the 2 preferred sites or one of the 2 "acceptable" sites, but we've been talking a lot about this anyway, and we've decided to expand my job search to Oregon as a step to moving. We love our friends here and the house, but the job market is sad at best and the only reason we've been able to stay this long is because Andy is telecommuting, and if we have to move anyway, we won't stay in Idaho. So, it is entirely possible that I'll be having to pack up and move the stash! THAT is a sobering thought. Needless to say, I've been knitting MUCH faster,
I've also, under close supervision,
I've also completed 2 new table runner tops,
I've also cast on for a new Begonia Swirl scarf/shawl.
