Today's appointment with my doctor has been postponed until next Monday. So the wait continues on the status of my blood clotting disorder. That's okay. I can wait.

The weather has been beautiful, but tonight will be the end of it. I expect to be getting snow by the weekend. They're saying rain on the news, but that's for Spokane who's temps at night will barely be above freezing. So ours will definitely be below freezing. I am going to mentally prepare myself for it so I don't get depressed. At least we know spring is here. My crocuses, daffodils, and tulips all sprouted yesterday, as well as the buttercups being in full bloom. Get a little sun around here and everything pops out in the open. I saw kids walking home from school today wearing shorts, tank tops, and flip flops. Now, it's been warm, but I don't think it's been warm enough for that! Kids....

I started a knew knitting project. I have some Juaquetta yarn.

Juaquetta is a local spinner who makes some very interesting yarns. Most of it is bulky weight, but it has lots of interesting textures, and wonderful color combinations. I have 4 skeins of a brown and teal colorway with bits of purple called Wildwood that I've been wanting to make into a vest. I need a mindless project. You know, something easy to take to knit group meetings. I picked a pattern which also requires a solid color for contrast. At first I thought I'd use that teal Brown Sheep stuff I bought a couple weeks ago. I knit a good 3 inches of it, but it's such a wonderful shade of teal screaming at me that it wants to be a cable sweater. I finally frogged it. I'm back to figuring out a solid contrast. I'd like to use brown. I spent some time digging in my considerable stash yesterday looking for brown. I don't have any. Once again, I have to buy more yarn. All that yarn in my stash and there's never the right color! Maybe I'll rethink the pattern I want to do with this stuff.

Good night.
