Monogamy in February

I do not like February. It’s dark and cold and leftover guilt from New Year’s resolutions clouds my enjoyment of the days. I can’t get out to walk much, getting together with friends seems like a lot of effort, and it is quite clear that Spring Shall Never Come Again.

I eat a lot of chocolate in February. It doesn’t really help.

This is all a prelude to admitting to you that I have not finished my Celtic Dreams Aran sweater in time for SPA, now only two days away. I bet you all thought that the absence of my chatty self from Blogland meant that I was saving up my energies for knitting ferociously away on Celtic Dreams.

Well, no.

I have gotten quite a bit done, and I’ve enjoyed it immensely, but somehow I don’t think the photo below shows the start of a new fashion trend, do you?

Even with the addition of the other newly cast-on project, seen below, I don’t think you’ll see me on the cover of Vogue Knits anytime soon.

In fact, let’s just display ALL of the projects I have cast on, and yet somehow not yet finished, since the beginning of the year. I haven't finished a damn thing in 2007.

Now you see why February is not my favorite month.
