It's Spring Already?

I knew it had been a long time since I updated but I didn't realize Feb. 23rd was the last entry! Sorry guys, not sure what came over me other than I hadn't been feeling well for a while (sinus infection then I had the flu) and just overall in a mood. Most recently I've just been playing catch up on things around the home front and too much of it now that spring has arrived.

Knitting has been spotty as well. Still struggling along on the vest though I'm about 2/3 of the way done. Honestly, I'd be further along if I'd only get out my swift and ball winder. But that means I have to get off my ass, walk across the living room to the jelly/yarn, book, whatever I can cram in there cupboard, set it up and then wind the yarn. Frankly, that's just too much work. Ever feel like that?
I've also been working on the lacey anklet socks from Interweave, one sock complete and the other about 2/3 done.

Last night I pulled out the wheel and actually did a little spinning and might spin a bit more tonight. You would think with all the fiber stash enhancement I would be spinning like a crazy woman. I think I haven't been spinning either because I have been working on a merino/tencel blend which honestly is starting to really bore me, so maybe tonight I will mix it up a bit and pull out something fun to spin like the locks I bought. Have yet to spin from a lock so that might be interesting or cause me to drink. We'll see how that plays out.

The photo is the merino/tencel blend, 2 ply. My plan for this is to make Cozy from Fall 2004 issue of Knitty. Something to have laying around my chair for when I get a chill in the winter. Having a plan for it should be enough to keep me from getting bored but I sometimes have the attention span of a 2 year old on a sugar high.
