brothers,monthly | Friday, January 31st, 2014

The weather – it’s been a gorgeous month of blue skies and fog. We spent the first half of the month getting over colds 1 at a time and getting back out into the sunshine has been deeply nourishing. Our tree remains in the back alley along with the remains of last years – oops. There has been much knitting and story time. i am obsessed with making the Barley hat (ravelry). i’ve been perusing some textile design books and feeling the urge to try out some more dyeing and printing – at this point I’m just trying to use what supplies i have. What sort of craftiness are you folks getting up to these days?

We were lucky to see the Nutcracker this Winter and both the music and dance have made a great impression on this little guy. We have daily Tchaikovsky dance sessions;

well if you made it to the end then thank you for being a truly committed blog peruser. I may very well be tapering off to 1 blog post per month that is limited in words and heavy in photos.

Little A skipped the last half day of school and the boys headed out in the snow before 7am. they spent 4 hours straight building snowmen, snow forts, snowballs, sledding, eating snow… After drying off and refueling they headed out again to the tobaggan hill. Small dramas aside, i wore my pjs ALL day (out with my 1993 sorels shoveling snow), got the littlest A to sleep in the teepee and spent some cozy time knitting last minute gifts;
