winter doldrums

Hello, all. Still here. Cold. Bored. Listless.

Winter sucks. Especially with wee children. They take cabin fever to a whole new level.

There has been a bit of knitting.

Exciting, no? No, not really. These are for sale over on Etsy.

There's a sock in progress that I pick up and put down, knitting one or two rounds at a time. I'm still sort-of working on the big, boring off-white raglan I started a couple months back. Finished Daughter's stripey socks, finally, that were started before AJ made it home from the hospital (must remember to get photo...she put them on right after the ends were woven in, and wore them for two days straight). And I've knit about 1/3 of the back of a Trellis sweater for a baby girl due in May. I remember making one for Daughter - picked out the yarn at a local shop when she was just weeks old, riding in the Bjorn carrier. Can it be that was 3.5 years ago? Holy cow.

Anyway. Longing for more sunshine, warm breezes, longer days, and time outside. Can't wait to head to the playground and turn Daughter loose while AJ and I chill on a blanket. Soooooooo sick of winter.

Sounds like a trip to Idaho is in order. We're basking in upper 50s and pure sunshine today. Wish you were here!
