Spring ahead?

I don’t know about you, but this is one Sunday that throws me for a loop every year. My adjustment period to Daylight Savings Time seems to take longer with each passing year. I’ve been up since 3:30 a.m. body time because I knew that it was 4:30 a.m. “real” time and I have a cat who gets meds every morning at the same time. I got up then because tomorrow morning the alarm will go off at 4:00 a.m. body time so it just seemed prudent to begin the change over on a day where I could be foggy if I chose to do so. Needless to say we are going with the K.I.S.S. system today. While I have a few projects I would like to start, and one I should start in case the adult ed class I’ve offered to teach gets students, I think that today will be a quiet crocheting day. I’m working on my second All Buttoned Up shawl, or rather my version of this lovely shawl as I’ve omitted the buttons and just crocheted the 3 squares together, for a friend of mine. It’s in Caron’s Simply Soft yarn in the very rich Autumn Red color. Absolutely gorgeous. I’ll have to find  pattern to make something for myself out of this color. In fact, all of the Simply Soft colors are amazing.

I suppose I could get the pattern and the yarn together for the Red Heart KAL that starts at the end of this month http://www.redheart.com/blog/spring-2012-knit-along . I don’t do many of these, but it’s good to see what others are doing and this is a good way to check in to groups with whom I don’t normally chat. It’s also a good way to learn a new stitch or two. Of course, I had to change the yarn. Happily I did check my stash to see what I had before my yarn imp, Jennifer – a  delightful lady who is going to go the KAL with me – could lead me astray (not a difficult task by any means) once again by purchasing more yarn. She is one of my biggest inspirations, yarn enabling aside, and someone who always seems to encourage me into moving in the right direction. Thanks, Imp!
