The fact that today is Friday the thirteenth is not lost on me as COVID-19 spreads its way around our neighborhoods. This is the first time I can remember that there will be no March Madness…sigh. But, I get it and I am happy that the students were more important that the revenue. The list of other spectator things that have been put on hiatus as well…NBA, NHL, MLB, Broadway shows…heck, even The View is audiance-less!
So if you, like me, are home bound for the next number of days, what’s a body to do?
Ponder no more! Do I have the things for you!
Start off with some MDK March Mayhem! Why, there is even a print out! So if you, like me, will be missing those NCAA brackets… miss.no.more! 64 patterns should be good for a merry afternoon of pondering! Get going (and this year there are SOCKS!!) Why you might even find an item or two that seems like the perfect Quarantine Knit…so.just.cast.on!
Do you have a Netflix/Amazon Prime show that you have been aching for some time to just sit down and binge? Need some suggestions? I have them!
From Netflix: The Bodyguard has just one season, but it is riveting! The Chef’s Table has more than one season and it is just brilliant! Then there’s Criminal… UK, France, and Spain. Start with UK, because David Tennant…
Amazon Prime has oodles of binge-worthy things!
I would start with The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel because the costuming is DIVINE, and who doesn’t needs some laughs right now! If you missed Modern Love now is the perfect time to catch up… it is brilliantly done, and the ending is genius! And, for a second helping of David Tennant Good Omens is so much fun! And, don’t forget Harry Bosch and there are numerous seasons to keep you occupied!
Perhaps you can look at this time as A Little Respite and Michelle has some excellent suggestions to settle yourself.
Beatrice Perron Dahlen’s Heron Island has just been released to the public and it is on sale until Sunday! (no code necessary, discount taken when you purchase it!)
If you are in need of something Lopi…Álafoss has yarn on deep sale with cheap shipping rates right now!
Finally, lots of Knitwear designers are stepping up to help ease our quarantine blues but I especially loved Hinterm Stein’s Knit In Company idea (really, sign up for her newsletter!) She is a prolific designer with tons of things to stay home and knit!
That is all the enabling I have for today! Stay well and wash your hands! See you back here on Monday!
