If we’re lucky, the sky will be clear this evening when the moon rises. If I may quote CNN quoting NASA about tonight’s super-sized perigree full moon:
Full moons look different because of the elliptical shape of the moon’s orbit. When it’s at perigee, the moon is about 31,000 miles (50,000 km) closer to Earth than when it’s at the farthest point of its orbit, also known as apogee. “Nearby perigee moons are about 14% bigger and 30% brighter than lesser moons that occur on the apogee side of the moon’s orbit,” the NASA website says.
Perhaps this rare perigee moon (next one doesn’t swing around again until 2029) will shine down and help a few Spring Sprinters, working into the wee hours tonight, to finish up their projects in time for the end of the Sprint on Sunday at 7:21 p.m., the official start of Spring. May it be so in my case!
Our Spring Sprint Closing Ceremonies will be held at our regular Stitch & Spin on Thursday, March 24, 6-8 p.m. If you can’t make it, we’ll hold your “medal” for you at the shop through March 31. Just swing by yourself for a visit to pick it up.
We’re going to celebrate Winter’s end in another way, the way we know best, with an End-of-Winter SALE, March 22-24. We’re marking down about a dozen of our dearest warm, wooly yarns 25%. We love them, but enough is enough. Jill and I will start thinking about wool again in June, when we place our fall orders at the trade show. (Let us know now if there’s anything in particular you’d like us to be looking for at the show, by the way. What else floats your yarn boat?) And please help us clear some space on the shelves for all those yarns yet to come!
I’ve saved the eye candy for last in this post. Here it is, LOVE spelled TOSH:
