February Blahs

Is it just me? Or is anyone else out there feeling the February Blahs? I just don't feel like doing much aside from taking a nice cozy nap... Unfortunately, Mr. Me and the kids don't agree that I should be allowed to hibernate all winter long while they fend for themselves. Even when I do feel like doing something, it just doesn't hold my interest for long. This may (in part) explain all of my started knitting projects...
There's the socks for my SITMT pal - although I have finished the first sock and am a respectable way into the second sock. Sorry, but I won't reveal too many details until they're done and shipped.
And there's the Secret of the Stole ii... Clue 1 below got finished in absolutely no time! Clue 2 has since been knit and photographed, but not downloaded. Clue 3 is about 60% knit... So that doesn't leave me completely in the dust, but still a little behind.I missed the first stole, but I'm pretty sure that it will lull me into a feeling that my life can't continue without it and I will eventually purchase it. Resistance is futile! I think that the stole is in cahoots with the Civil War Shawl... Since it seems to be whispering to me too.
There are numerous other partially knit things around, but I haven't been able to concentrate long enough to take pictures of them... I did clean out my closet last week and took some pictures of some of my finished objects from "the past" to put up on Flickr and then Ravelry, but I somehow got distracted. I've uploaded the photos, but I think that actually trying to figure out what some of the patterns are really called put me off...
Another sign of the February Blahs is my Visa balance. It was started to look kind of under control. Then February came. But I'm sure that the needles and froggy notion holder that I received in a shipment from Knitpicks on Monday will make my life a happier place. That's my story and I'm sticking to it!

I had the February blahs, but went shopping Friday - see blog for spoils. I must admist that I am doing even less well on Sotsii - i finished the first six rows and it is neatly ont op of the new pile in the corner of my room - sots i is a sweet pattern - I just need a coupld of hours. Block 2 of my Lizard ridge is having the ends woven in right now. We won't discuss sister's afghan. The sock is really lovely.

Love the stole so far! Can't wait to see it finished. Anything new from Knitpicks makes the blahs go away, even if just for a little while. Happy Knitting

I don't know what it is about the blahs...and I can't blame it on the weather. It's been crazy gorgeous here. So out-of-normal, but still I just want to CO for 15 different projects. Why can't I just knit on the ones I have OTN?

I love the socks too! The colors look yummy!

I wish that I could say that I had the February blahs due to the weather, but I think that you would all kick my rear end. It's hard to complain about the weather when we wore shorts all weekend....

I do have the blahs because this is when Munchkin turns 22 and that also means that she is three full months away from graduation from College. I'm justy out of sorts....trying to adjust to this next phase in her life and in ours.

Trying to finish the Meadow vest and the SITMT socks to keep me focused.pzlmkpx

I love those socks! I'm try to keep myself on a knitting spending limit. I'm only buying yarn for actual(in queue) projects and I can only buy 2 patterns a month. I've already bought my February patterns.

I have the Blah's for sure! I am so ready for spring and maybe February being the month where it is kind of still winter, but not really and kind of spring, but not really makes us feel like we are in a waiting room, waiting for Spring to appear! So that makes us all antsy and that makes us want to Cast on more projects!

Enough of the rambling! I love the socks:) As for projects being photographed and not downloaded, lets just say I have FO's I have yet to even photograph, let alone download:)
