My favorite month

February is my usually my favorite month of the year for two reasons. I love Valentines Day, and the Global Bazaar comes to Target. I know most of it is over priced crap from China, but I love it anyways. Mostly I love the Indian decorative stuff, and where I live the Global Bazaar is one of the only places to get that kind of stuff.

This year, though, I'm not really feelin' February. It's just going by so fast. I didn't even think about Valentines Day until it happened, and now its over. It may be that I've been so wrapped up in the idea of getting a house that I've ignored everything else. I needed a project after my wedding was over; something to obsess about constantly, and I found it.

I've even gotten tired of knitting, which doesn't usually happen until April(ish). Every year, in the Spring, I usually give up knitting, and pursue other creative endeavors, like scrapbooking and collage. Then, like old friend, around September, the urge to knit will come back to me and we spend the winter together. I think I'm getting tired of it so early because I've started this eternal project, that will never end. I'm working on a stripey blanket, and it's beautiful, but is taking forever to finish, and I'm at a place now it feels like I'm not making any progress. Hopefully I'll finish before I get sick of it and give up until next year. My husband wants me to make him one, but I don't know if I can bring myself to do it.
