It's a bit premature. It usually starts near the end of April. I want time off from work to clean (major spring cleaning) garden and do fiber things. I frequently schedule a week of vacation for this time of year and have enjoyed it every time I did it. This year I can't do that because of the need to go to NY in the next few months for my brother but WOW do I want to! It's such a struggle to go to work every day.
I have been knitting away on my test knit spiral shawl. I have gotten to the point of adding the first of the two additional increase areas, which means that the rows are getting longer faster now. I suspect my "inches of progress" will slow despite my "number of stitches progress" growing. It's going to be a great shawl.
I have been knitting on Elis also, since I need a simple knitting project for walking to and from the garage, etc. I have just started the last repeat of Indian Cross stitches. Sock progress has been made - both the Riff and the SKYP socks are mid-heel/gusset. Yippee! I think the cashmere blend sock yarn staring at me each night before bed is a spur to knitting on those other socks. ; )
That is all as far as fiber progress is concerned. I had 2!! migraines on Tuesday. Despite being home from work, I made little progress due to the pain. No spinning or plying has happened but I plan to change that over the weekend. The plying will be finished this weekend. I have decided. I'd like to do my spring clean out and rearranging of my fiber and yarn but I doubt that I will have time for that plus the plying ......
