It's been hard to find time to knit lately. The boys, Joe, cooking, and playing volleyball have been getting more of my attention recently. Once or twice a week I take a few hours to create little stitches, but I'd say that the past month has been somewhat of an empty knitting landscape for me, but when I do knit it's been brightly colored projects that get my attention. Perhaps because of the weather (we are still getting snow here, as of yesterday!) When I do have a few moments, I've been working on this sock. Picture shown is of the first sock, but I'm halfway done with the second now.
It's Opal's Potpourri collection and its a very fun knit. I've been looking at my sock drawer and found that it's lacking in purple so this was a great addition. I think next needs to be some sort of blue. Perhaps from the Beach Treasure collection. Or a dark color. Most of my socks are bright in color because I knit mostly at night in a darkened room and looking at little black stitches would be maddening. Plus crazy colors are much more fun on simple socks. Especially during such a dreary time of year.
We got new Trekking XXL colors this week (staring at 579) and I'm considering one of those next. Opal is also coming out with a rare cotton blend collection soon, and I'm looking forward to that one too. So much to consider.... Now only if I had more knitting time. I love that knitting is always waiting for me, be it nightly or weekly. Never pressuring me for more, always giving.
Do you find that your knitting time is consistent? Or are there certain weeks or months that you knit much more than others? For me, this past couple months has definitely qualified as a knitting dry spell for me. Spring break is next week, and I'm hoping to have a lot of time to knit while spending time with the boys and family. Anyone have exciting spring break plans??
