I've been feeling restless lately, due to A) a lack of rest, heh and B) a lack of satisfaction with current projects.

The cause of the lack of rest, at least, is easily identifiable: After waking up 6-7 times a night tending to a sick Maxou (that's how Maxime likes to be called lately - Maxou), my immune system finally cried "Uncle!" and I went and caught a doozy of a cold. Naturally, this coincided with a fairly busy week, both in terms of work and recreation (saw not one but TWO concerts this week, which was awesome, but very, very tiring). Luckily, the cold is on the mend, and I can always catch up on the whole "sleeping" thing.

The lack of project satisfaction is harder to remedy though. I finished the Milkweed Shawl on Tuesday, and now I'm torn between a sense of duty to finish lingering WIPs and the urge to cast on for completely new projects. Spring will soon be sprunging, and all I really want to knit are shawls and scarves! Lovely, brightly coloured neck accoutrement that I wrap around myself and bury my face in. Like, well, Milkweed!

She's blocking as we speak:

I'm thinking Daybreak next. After I finish the Honeybee Cardigan, of course...

Happy Knitting Everyone!

je sympathise... je me sens toujours dans cet état d'esprit: le temps roule trop vite... j'aimerais faire trop dans un si court laps de temps qui s'appelle "la fin de semaine"! Bref... prend soin de toi!

Daybreak is nice! Good to see a shawl (designed by a bloke) that isn't frilly :D What colors are you going to do? Cast on! Cast on! hehehe.

Oh, I can't wait to see Milkweed in full, thanks for the teaser!

Daybreak is a nice choice! I also can't wait to see your honeybee too!

I second all the others, Daybreak is a lovely pattern.
Looking forward to seeing some more pictures of the Milkweed, the teaser pic looks lovely. The colours are really vibrant!
I hope Maxou & yourself are feeling better soon.

Gorgeous yarn! Those blues and greens remind me of a skein of Hand maiden sea silk in the Nova Scotia colourway that's languishing in my stash ... :)

Hope you're feeling better soon!
