Fickle mind

This is the part of winter I find hardest to deal with. It is so close to spring, but just not close enough. It sometimes feels like the brass ring on a merry-go-round, which you can see but just…can’t…quite…reach.

Two days ago, it was 60 degrees here. The sun was shining, the short-sleeved t-shirts were out, and I was ready to abandon my knitting in favor of garden gloves. I felt lighter and springier and all-around wonderful.

Hee-hee-hee, said Mother Nature, and blessed us with an ice storm.

Oh well, more time for knitting, I suppose. I have no finished objects to display with pride, though. I’ve knit a few rows on my new spring hat:

I’ve finished the back of my husband’s sweater (begun in 2007. February 2007. Yes, more than a year ago.):

And I’m still stuck on the same row of my Kathryn Alexander hat:

There is a reason I haven’t been able to make much progress on my knitting projects. My fickle mind has been turned by the luscious colors and textures found here…  Hurry on spring!

  1. Hahaha… I love seeing the garden books — it’s a perfect almost-spring distraction from knitting. The springtime hat is certainly a garden-like shade of green! I hate to say it, but spring has most definitely sprung here. It sounds like bragging now, but come August, when you have a lovely green garden, and I’m living in my California sea of brown, the shoe will be on the other foot 🙂
