WIP Wednesday: Doldrums

My favorite definition for doldrums is unhappy listlessness. I have that. I know it’s just February getting me down. I need a little warmth and sunshine in my life. The snow and socks aren’t doing it for me. I’ll have to try to see the good in things.

IMG_1532We had another little bit of snow. I am tired of cold and snow and all that winter stuff. This morning I awoke to another heavy dusting of snow. It’s another gray day. Blah. See the faint line of foot prints on the left side of the photo. It’s a bunny traveling through. That’s a bit of a hopeful sign.

IMG_1531I spent some time yesterday working on the sock. I got a few uninterrupted hours and hope to find a few more today to get this final bit done. I really have enjoyed knitting this pattern. It goes along quickly and looks really nice with the yarn. The pattern is Red Vine/Blackjack by Rachel M. Blaine. The yarn is Premier Yarns Serenity Sock in lavender.

*Sorry about the photos. I couldn’t get them to edit correctly so I had to use them as they were.

    I’m sick of the winter too, I really want spring to just be here! But the socks are looking great as always 🙂


  2. I wish we would get at least one more snow before winter fades to spring, but I hear you and have to say I like your definition of the doldrums. Hope you get in those knitting hours today! Nothing like a finished project to cheer one up. 🙂

    That was nice that the bunny visited your yard. This morning I heard a bird singing and it reminded me of how long it’s been since I’ve heard any birds – so spring can’t be too far off, can it??? But then, there’s that big snowstorm coming on Friday – make sure you stock up on yarn and other essentials. 😉

    Grey winter days can certainly get a girl down. Maybe knit something day-glo bright next? I find it hard to be in a low mood whilst knitting eye-searingly bright socks…

    I am so glad we haven’t had much snow this year. We are not known for heavy snowfall, but some years we get a lot. Right now I wish for sunny days, whether warm or not. Go socks!!

    February is probably my least favorite month of the year. If it wasn’t for knitting, I don’t know what I would do! Eat lots of junk food, probably 🙂 Your socks are looking great.


  10. Keep calm and cast on!

    You know how some tank animals need that heat lamp? You need a super sized one right by your house. Knit more socks to make you happy and pick some sunny yarn.


  12. Emily says:

    You’re sooo close to being done! I’d say cast on for something new, but I know that sometimes you just have to wait for that mojo to come back …

    Don’t apologize for the pictures. There is no way to get a good photo in the winter…its just too grey outside…
    I hope spring comes early for you. Winter does get to be a drag.


  14. I’m about sick of winter too. But those pretty socks will keep you warm! I love the color.
