To Ease the Depression



You know how let-down you feel after the holidays or a big vacation is over and it's back to the real world? That's how I feel now. I thought it was just post-New Orleans blues, but Jim nailed it when he said, "This is the first time you haven't said you need to go work on your dress." I feel lost with a week off work and not much to do....soooo, I picked up my knitting needles for the first time in 3 months! I really thought I forgot how to cast on, but it came back to me. This will be a lacy shrug with long sleeves that I found on Ravelry. Can't remember where I bought the yarn - Birmingham, I think.

The kids had a week off for Mardi Gras (ridiculous) so Dean & I took off too. We usually go skiing or get out of town, but not this year.

I hate that hollow feeling after completing a project. I feel like I am chasing my tail until I find that next great thing to make. Your knitting project will be lovely.

Exactly! I'm over halfway finished already - I think it'll be nice.
