It was starting to get springlike around here – well, enough for the temps to reach near 10ºC / 50ºF with lots of sunny days, melting most of the snow. But today brought fresh snow, perfectly normal here in northern Norway at this time of year! Spring comes late. The days are growing long, though (sunset is after 8PM now) and the midnight sun will begin in mid-May. The light here is always changing and it continues to be surreally beautiful. I’m grateful for that.
It’s a bit quiet here on the blog at the moment because April also means I’m now spending a majority of my time working on my course papers, which are due in May, and I also broke my shoulder a month ago, which means I’m on a bit of a necessary break from knitting, obviously. I need a bit more sleep and I’m eating more than normal, but otherwise it hasn’t interrupted my everyday life too much – aside from the knitting. I definitely miss it at this point and I’m looking forward to when I’ll be able to pick up the needles again.
If you’ve ever had to take a break from knitting due to injury (or for any other reason), I’d love to hear about what helped the most when all you could think about was the projects you’d love to be casting on!
