What day is it? Is that the sun shining? Where am I?

Lots of questions, no?

Well, February is half over, yet the heater still burns in South Texas and I am cold all the time, but winter will eventually end, I hope.

There has been a great deal of knitting going on, but not much to show for it.

First up, the Pumpkin Cheesecake scarf/wrap is inching along:


Had to get the sunshine in there, but here is a close up to show the true colors:
One and a half skeins in and I am half-way there, just in time for Spring, no less.
While Woolgirl is closing her shop, she will continue to provide kits and maintain her wonderful yarn clubs.  She even had a couple of test knits for me, that are still super secret and I cannot share, but one of these days, I will be able to show you.

The Madelinetosh Vintage in Mirth and I have been going at it again.  I have knit and frog one whole skein of it about four times.  I thought I had finally matched it to a perfect pattern, but two skeins into it, I think this, too, is destined for the frog pond, dammit.


In fact, I have been a bit frog happy around here.  I had some WIPs languishing about and decided I was no longer in love, so I ripped out and re-skeined a whole bunch of things, not that I had other projects in mind for the yarn, I was just tired of the partially worked items lying around and mocking me.  Now they simply mock from the stash closet.  Unfortunately, I can still hear them, snickering in the darkness, high on their little cedar fumes.
Could it be a bit of knitting burn-out?

Say it isn't so...

Lovely! It's funny, because I was just meaning to e-mail you--I finally found the right pattern for the yarn you sent me (one of the skeins, anyway--I'm still pondering the other). And it's a scarf not unlike this beauty, but with beads.


(New blog, too; I can't afford to renew the webhosting this year, so I'm starting afresh.)

I'd say don't fight the knitting burn-out. Sometimes, you just need a break.

Have you looked back at just how much knitting you've DONE this last year?! I say pick up sewing again and change gears for spring. Autumn will come and the yearning for the needles, too.

If you are having a 'knit burn-out' you could always teach,,,*S* Maybe a few tutorials here at Feisty Knitting for the dummies among us!!! Just a thought.

LOVING that Pumpkin Cheesecake scarf/wrap! I really like the Madelinetosh Vintage in Mirth too; such a vivid color!

I think I'm going to do some frogging myself on this multidirectional scarf; just too many color changes too quickly to even see the pattern! Maybe I can save this yarn for my first pair of crazy socks or something!! *L*

This has been quite the knitters' winter in the South, heh? The pumpkin cheesecake is beautiful!
