The forecast is looking pretty good – depending on what source you look at, we’ll be in the mid-to-high 60s with a chance of hitting 70 over the next four days. I’ll take it. Of course, the return of warmth gets me itching something fierce to DO STUFF. It doesn’t matter what, really; I just want to move, to accomplish things, to finish projects, to get things done. I’m shaking off the lethargy of winter and ready to be productive. I went for a walk at lunch three days this week, and plan on playing in the dirt quite a bit this weekend. I was so inspired by the hazy sunshine today that I made a pitcher of iced tea.
Spring fever is also evident in my knitting choices. Hats? on hold. Blankets? resting. Gloves? what gloves?? This morning as I searched for a knitting project to bring for my commute, I just couldn’t get excited about anything I found. Of course, just finding knitting projects is a huge undertaking, what with having to hide them from the cat… I think there will be a stash organizational binge in the near future. Anyway: nothing was grabbing me, and so I did what any self-respecting knitter would do. I started something new.
This is a pair of socks, in yarn that is leftover from a pair of socks I made last year about this time. It just screams SPRING to me. I’m not a pink person, but right now, this is exactly what my soul needs. Besides, the yarn was already balled up and in a Ziploc baggie, ready to go.
Oh – and I did finish the white baby blanket – with about a yard of yarn to spare. I need to weave in the ends and block it this weekend.
