She surfaces

I just haven't had much in the way to say lately. I got addicted to some fan fiction over at Mugglenet and I got lost in some Snape stories. Not to mention the time suck that is Ravelry. Always lots of interesting things to read over there. And loads of people to annoy the shit out of. :)

Actually, I'm kind of slipping into a bit of a depression. It's not so bad so far. No dark thoughts. Just a shitload of not wanting to do anything. I've barely knit a thing in the last few weeks. I still haven't done the finishing on the stealth knitting. *sigh* I know part of it is that TJ quit. This past weekend was his last. He'll be working 80 or 90 hours a week at his new job, so I'm not likely to see him again. Oh well, it wasn't a good thing for me anyway.

I got my February yarn from Story Publishing for their contest at WEBS.

I got a lovely skein of Swoon from Fiesta yarn. It's in the poppies colorway. Very yummy yarn. I can see why they call it Swoon.

They sent a lovely scarf pattern that works well with the yarn provided. Not sure I'll actually make it though. I might try and make either a hat or a neckwarmer. I also got some cute magnets.
Nick couldn't wait to put them on the fridge. I am not sure why he put them upside down though. lol
I've already gotten the March package but I haven't taken pictures of it yet. It was a skein of Berroco Sox. I don't really knit socks so I'm not quite as enthused about that package. lol I'll see if I can motivate myself to take pictures tomorrow.
If the child has behaved himself at school today, we are going to go see Horton Hears a Who tonight. Cross your fingers cause I really want to get out of the house. lol

I hope you start to feel better. End of winter is always a hard time. Swoon is the correct name for that yarn. Beautiful!

Ah, low-grade depression. A recent visitor here, too. Hang in there! And yeah, isn't Ravelry some sort of black hole???
