Snow and Socks

Has winter been ridiculously miserable everywhere this year?  We've had so much frozen rain and snow, and it's been extremely cold.  That said, it's been too unpleasant to get out much so I've been knitting A LOT.  Mostly on knit wear.  Socks, more specifically.  This year I vow to knit at least a few pairs of socks all the way through without dropping the project for several months before picking it up again.  The Halloween socks I started back in October lay neglected until a couple of weeks ago when I finally got over my "second sock syndrome" and finished them.  I'm working on a wintry/Valentine's Day pair now, and Knit Picks must have heard about my socks kick because they discontinued all of their Felici color ways.. so of course I had to go and order yarn in the ones I've had my eye on.
However, news!  I'm in the planning stages of a couple of big projects, and also have some knitwear pieces to shoot photos of and post soon.  Plus, this weekend I will be painting my studio!  I'm really excited to get everything set up in there so I can really get to work.  I hope it's warm in your neck of the woods -- spring is on the horizon.
