# 33 of 365 - Imbolc or Groundhog Day

Depending on how you celebrate, today is either Groundhog Day or the celebration of Imbolc. It's due to reading Diana Gabaldon's Outlander series that I got interested in my Celtic heritage. It also lead me to learn more about the seasons as expressed in Celtic Lore. Readers of the series will totally understand this statement. Here's Erin and I waiting to get the latest book in the series signed by Diana, herself. It's also a picture of me in another hat I wear...

Anyway, Punxsutawney Phil did see his shadow but the other groundhogs, for the most part did not, so either Winter is over shortly or we have six more weeks... Good thing I am knitting all these shawls for MMX, then to keep me warm if necessary...

I had to click on the Imbolc link as I had never heard of that.

Was that picture taken at the Tattered Cover?

Still need your winding station and I guess a copy of the cherry pattern as I cannot find the one I thought I got at guild.
