Some times you need a break. Whether it is mental or physical, you just have to stop. That has been today for me. I have done the necessities, but not much else.
I need to fix the curling at the bottom, but this sweater is coming along. The nexr sweater I hope to finish in a week or two. It is a small one, and I have a good start on it. Chunky yarn and big needles combined with a toddler size work up quickly.
I still have to sew up the dragon. It takes some stealing of one's self to sew that many pieces together.
I am also attempting to plan out Christmas. And other things, like some sewing projects and items for the Etsy shop. I have to rework stuff there and really think about what to do. What have you been up to?

Does anyone else feel like spring is elusive this year? It was hot here quickly, followed by more than one cold snap, and it feels like spring now just doesn't quite want to get started.

I still have made little progress on anything. The pastime that was once my stress release has been pushed to the side. Other things manage to override my knitting. But, I started back on the second blue sweater.
I started on the first sleeve. I had been knitting on my Boxy, and untangling the other half of the skein. The yarn is Oceania, and it has 1440 yards in it. That is an entire sweater. Or almost. I had to cut it, as my ball winder would not hold all of it, and it was severely tangled. Not anymore. Over this past week, working on it a bit here and a bit there (mostly at night while watching Netflix), I was able to untangle it all. I have about 9 inches of the 22.5 that I need. Almost halfway there. Noticing the "almost" trend? Yeah, me too.

I had been working on straightening up the basement and moving boxes around so that like things are together. It is an attempt to find clothes for the Littlest Princess, but I am not having much luck. I worked for about 45 minutes, took a short break, and was then asked to put together a Big Wheel. That took almost an hour. Then I got a phone call, had a call of nature, and now I am sitting outside, watching my girls play, and knitting.
I am turning more and more to my Boxy sweater. I need to finish the blue sweater and dragon for Little Man, as we are approaching 2 months after his birthday. Of course, mine is just around the corner (13 days and counting) but I don't generally make myself a gift. I try to purchase one, but I would like a completed project.
The garden seeds are beginning to sprout, but the insane weather isn't helping much. The weather is schizophrenic at best. It warms up like spring, almost summer, then drops down to winter freezing temperatures within a week. I guess that is just springtime in Georgia. What are you making?
