One after effect of Bloggerfest is that I'm going to attempt to post more often (I've said that before) and mostly I want to show respect for those who comment on my blog and answer as many comments as I can. I went back and responded to those who commented on my last post.
I am taking February off from much of anything except getting my life sorted and spending time with Bosley, my cat. I need the down time and he needs the attention. I'm going through things and getting rid of stuff. I'm down to items that I still like but just don't use anymore. 3 pair of cowboy boots are in the pile to donate now. They were bought before my feet went up a size in shoes. Some of my shoes are ones that I used to wear to work when I needed to dress more formally than I do now. If those shoes fit I'm keeping them for now. Progress, not perfection.
I'm also going through my knitting notions. I never have, and hope to never need to, used double pointed needles to knit in the round. I use circular needles and I use Magic Loop method to knit smaller circumferences such as sleeves and hats. I have a knitting friend here who does prefer the double point needle method, so I'm giving all my sets to her. It seems that every time I dig into my supplies I find another set. Remember, I said I never used them. sigh.
I have other stuff locally I want to do this month. Seems every time I leave an area at the end of the season I think of all the things I had planned to do while in that location. This is the month.
