It’s a funny old month

February is a strange month, really quite hard to pin down its character.  December is simple, feverish gift knitting and a growing hysteria. January is more reflective with promises of cold sheeping and cooing over the yarn received in the Christmas swap.

But February? On a positive note, the mornings are getting lighter, payday is just around the corner and there are plenty of knitty events to look forward to.  However for those on the sheep the grim reality of being on a yarn diet is really starting to bite and with Easter still many weeks away we have no clear focus for our efforts.

So how does a wiley crafter respond?

Some go stark staring mad and take on the challenge of casting on a project for each day of the month.  Not for the faint hearted but it certainly staves off the boredom.

Others dive into their stash a get creative with their hoard – Sharon’s rainbow jacket is an amazing response to the siren call of yarn already purchased.

The weaker willed among us (that would be me) allege that they do not have ANYTHING of use in their stash and continue to purchase and even plan pilgrimages to yarn shops in foreign cities.

So, halfway through this troublesome month we plough on with our projects and dream of Edinburgh, the Dock Market and a Very Big Sock!
