February’s Full Moon is called the “Snow Moon” – so named because it occurs when snow is often on the ground in the northeast area of the US. The Native American Indians also called it the Hunger Moon because it was a time of year when food was scarce and game was harder to find.
I think it’s safe to say that, as a knitter, creative expression is one of the many things that draws us to fiber work. That’s why when I read that the First Quarter of the Moon is marked by creative growth, it made sense.
Speaking of yarn, this is a great time to take a hard look at an important presence in our lives: OUR STASH! I capitalized this since it’s a source of great interest to those of us who, long ago, fell in love with fiber and yarn goods of all kinds.
