Decisions, decisions

The Men’s Fingerless Mitts were finished and presented to the husband last night for Valentine’s Day. He loves them, and I can’t say how happy that makes me!

Yesterday I woke to this. Snow! Very unusual for this part of Virginia. Of course, by midmorning it had vanished, however my daughter ran about in it for a few minutes before breakfast.

This morning there was a bird, which I’ve never seen before, eating at the feeders.

The pic isn’t that great, but I think there’s enough to try to identify the little guy (or gal).

Now that I’ve finished the gloves and am on the second button band side of the Brompton Cardigan, what shall I cast on? A scarf to match my Bronte’s Mitts? I’ve two skeins of Crystal Palace Kid Merino in Iris.

Then there’s the project for Project Spectrum. That lovely, fiery wool. And I have some Wildfoote sock yarn, plus I’ve printed out the Vinnland Socks pattern from The AntiCraft. What to do; what to do?
