March came in like a lion around here; the last day of February was sunny and warm but with gale force gusts of wind, which blew in the rain clouds. The rain poured down all night, but I was snug inside, knitting away on the baby blanket. I think I'm ready to do the garter portion and bind it off. Maybe just one more repeat of the pattern, now that I finally memorized it.
I've finished watching Cranford and am waiting for Return to Cranford to be available at the video store. It's such a comforting show; it reminds me of the series of books by Miss Read. I reread them every few years and I always feel so calm when I do, and apparently I'm not the only one. I don't remember how I found them, but they're quite enjoyable. I also used to reread the Anne of Green Gables books periodically for the same reason. I wonder if I'd enjoy reading the Cranford books now that I've seen the adaptation? Between school, the class I'm taking, and knitting, I haven't been reading very much at all lately, other than blogs, which is unusual for me.
A random thought: I had such luck making body scrubs at Christmas, that I think I'm going to try and make some lotion soon too. Maybe while I'm on spring break?
