Raise your hand if you're tired of snow...

Um, yeah, I'm over all of the snow we've gotten. Its pretty to look at but its keeping The Things home from schooll WAY too much and they've lost almost all of their school vacations leading up to Spring Break. (((sigh))) Either way, Spring is closer than it ever was before and I'm going to keep my eyes on the prize - warmer weather!

So, to keep myself from going stir crazy, I've been knitting, spinning and nesting for the new baby. Here's what's been happening round these parts...

Speaking of Cheekies, as part of the Help for Haiti campaign that Ravelry launched, I'm donating 50% of gross proceeds from my patterns sales to Haitian relief efforts through February 15th. AND King Thing's company is going to match our gift dollar for dollar.

I've began offering two of my online knitting workshops as "on-demand". That means that they'll be available anytime instead of having to wait for a workshop to start on a particular date. You simply register with your payment through Paypal and within 24 hours, you will be sent the login link to the workshop website. For more information, visit the site at http://theindigomuse.ning.com

That's it for now. Hopefully, I'll have new puppy pictures next week if the weather cooperates. Can't. Wait!
