January is coming to an end, and it's been a funny sort of month. Usually I find January a month of hope and optimism - a time to dream and plan. This year, it's felt tired and directionless - maybe it's the influence of the weather, it's another wet and very windy day here.
I've tried to simply my knitting projects, disciplining myself to concentrate on the one immediately in front of me. This month it has been my Fair Isle cardigan using leftovers. I set myself the task of completing it by the end of the month, certainly possible but I'm growing weary of working of it. It's certainly looking colourful though isn't it.
My embroidery squares are coming along nicely. I've completed 21 now, but I'm setting myself a punishing schedule, of 4 /5 squares a week. Again, I've reached a point where enthusiasm has left me.
I need a new project, a new diversion, an adventure, something to liven me up, get the blood pumping.

So this afternoon, I'm NOT going to carry on with the Fair Isle knitting, or embroider another square, as I had planned. Instead, I'm going to give myself an energy boost and dream up a new adventure.
Before then, I've got to brave the elements as I have a dentist appointment, BUT when I get back home! The sky's the limit, I'm going to dream BIG!
I hope you all have more energy than me, and if you have any to spare, please send it my way.
