Most of what I remember about March consists of low light, endless rounds plying my snow shovel and roof rake, the Passage of Pee - the narrow, high-sided tunnel shoveled from deck to chicken coop that was decorated daily by the dogs - knitting and obsessing over knitting podcasts. There may have been some ordering of yarn and related objects. There may have been way too much of that.
In the miasma of March, I, being the mental case that I am/was, I entered a near-swooning state over the new Making magazine. I am not one for subscriptions - with the exception of my devotion to Taproot Magazine, to which I have subscribed from the beginning. I am sure it was due to all the knitting and watching all those ladies (and men) do all their better knitting, and all the much more complicated and lovely things they were knitting that I totally thought I could knit as well. And then there was the lack of sunlight. In any event, it appears I ordered two subscriptions. Sigh. The very nice women who create this publication (based in Portland, ME - Sylvie!) refunded my extra subscription and let me keep the extra copy of No. 5 - Color.
In view of this largess, I am having a drawing for the extra copy. You can go to their website here, to see what all the fuss is about.
Here's what you need to do to enter the drawing - leave a comment below about March. Or making something. Or about an interesting conversation you overheard in the grocery store. Whatever. Make the comment by midnight Wednesday, April 25th, which, by the way is National Administrative Assistant Day (formerly, Secretarys' Day but HEAVEN FORBID WE LEAVE ANYONE WHATSOEVER OUT OF BEING SPECIAL) and which, by the way, is the day before National Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day. I may be bringing the pups...hehe. Back to business. I will draw a winner on Friday. The drawing is open to the continental US and our neighbors to the North (yay, Canada!!!)
Aren't you glad I am such a hot mess?
