Well, back home and it's the last day of vacation. Feeling much better - was so sick driving home yesterday... the blanket is 60% done. Wondering if Heidi would like some white yarn or ribbon woven through for accents... it might make cleaning a bit more tricky, though.... hmmmmm..... don't know what I should do....

It's vacation week!!! Love it. Love it. Love it.
Some blanket progress - but slowed down when my interchangeable needle fell apart & I had to put the dropped stitches back on --- missed four and didn't find until much later.... AAARGH!!! Some fixing ensued, and hopefully will blend in ok. At least it's starting to look like a blanket.
Lots of skating progress. The entrance to the spins is much better and the loop jump is also much better.... not beautiful yet, but the end product seems possible.
There is a very early crocus trying to come up! And some robins have come back...

So much snow.... it's been like driving in a labyrinth.
Working a lot.
Knitting a bit. The blanket's a bit longer. I'm up to about a foot now. Wonder if Heidi wants fringe. I'm keeping track of the time it takes for the first time. Very enlightening!
Skating's been great lately. Lots of progress on that loop jump. I've finally landed a few legit jumps.... at least I know it's possible now. I'm also getting lower on my sit spin. It's all not that beautiful yet... far from mastered...but I'm working on it.
