“We shall neither fail nor falter; we shall not weaken or tire...give us the tools and we will finish the job.”

~Winston Churchill quotes

I seem to have startitis.  I started a 3/3 rib shawl with the mohair that #1 bought me at Rhinebeck.  I started a sweater shawl I saw somewhere.  And I started a pair of mittens and only finished one.  I want to start working on the rug thing but wont until I finish the on going projects....why did I start them?  I think sometimes the ideas get bottlenecked between my brain and my hands.  I don't know what to work on so I start things hoping that is what it was.  Similiar to opening the fridge 10 times and still not finding anything that would tickle your tastebuds.

And let's not forget the fleece.  And I have spun what I washed originally.  I finally finshed washing it Thursday and got the combs yesterday.

Add to that there are things I want to do around the house.  I can not spackle a ceiling so I am waiting for it to be done so I can paint.  And there is a list of  things like that.

Oh well in the meantime, I look out and finally see sunshine.  Unbelievably it actually gives off a little warmth and the temps have gone up a little.  While out with the animals I thought of how often I had been sucked into the delusion of Spring at times like these only to have them dashed with another coldspell or snow.  So I just kept walking past the greenhouse and garden and came inside...they will be there still when the real Spring comes down the pike.

Until then I will go back to the projects started and finish them off since I have the tools...before I start another.
