So tired of winter.........

Are you tired of winter too? I need the sunshine and warmth of Spring. I need to see things start to blossom and grow. I need to plant my marigolds, cosmos, cleome and other favorite flowers that give me a sense of good. I need my children to run around the yard and laugh and play. Where is Spring?

I am starting another fingerless glove, but I have not had any time to accomplish them for my valentine's day gifts. I haven't been home most of this week with so much going on. So, needless to say, I haven't been knitting. I figure if I knit these gloves, at my leisure, by Christmas I may have the few I need for my friend's gifts. I also would like to make a purse for my Mom (her birthday is in April), but I haven't had time to sit and work on that either. Kids, house, obligations, they all keep you constantly on the go and I am o.k. with that. I guess I will get most of my knitting done when my children are grown and my house is empty. Then I can focus on baby sweaters and afghans. For now, my occasional knitting projects give me a little joy and some peace. (Did you know that the Harvard Medical Journal did a study and found that people equated that calming, repetitive motion of knitting to yoga?) I believe it, because it works for me.
