Let the past sleep, but let it sleep in the sweet embrace of Christ, and let us go on into the invincible future with Him. (Oswalt Chambers)

Chat Back for March 7

Answering questions from comments and email.

Laura from beautiful West Mich asked . . .
Isn't it so much fun when you make something for someone and they really like it?

Almost everyone is polite enough to act as if they really like what I make them. The true test is if they wear it.

I don't want anything I knit packed away or saved for good. I want it worn and enjoyed until it has holes in it.

Wouldn't it be nice if people who didn't like or want their knitted gifts had a nice way to tell us so we knitters don't spend hours knitting them something else they don't want?

Phoebe asked . . .
Any signs of spring in SW Michigan?

Even after two days of temperatures over 60 degrees, we still have piles of dirty, unmelted snow.

And lots of mud.

Although though we expect at least one more good snow before this winter is over, it's time to plan for warmer weather.

The lawn tractor got picked up for its spring maintenance this week. Once the grass turns green and starts growing, the tractor will be ready to mow.
