Ready for a Warm Up

I remember thinking to myself sometime last November about how stacked/full the next few months were going to be so I kept chanting, "If I can just make it through Mid-February...".  Well, Mid-February is here so that means the Holidays have long-since finished, the Sticks and String Event happened last month (aka the dye-a-thon is over), I completed my ACLS renewal for work last week, and the Annual Fart Food Party has come and gone...  Maybe now I can exhale.  I know the Dreams in Fiber Household is getting antsy - too much time cooped up and working; warmer temperatures and elbow room is what we desire.  In the hopes of spending a few hours outdoors before the next big snowstorm hits later this week, we decided to go for a walk to a nearby playground and stretch our legs.  Unfortunately, we timed our little outing poorly and the temps kept dropping while the winds kept howling so it was an abbreviated trip.  I even did an about-face after we had headed out and walked back home to get the car and woolens because I knew the hubby and minions would be frozen by the time they arrived at the playground.

It's rather difficult to get a decent picture of them as they get older, especially when my hands were shaking a little bit.  A lot of my attempts turned out like these.

Every now and then I get lucky though and you can see their face/not overly blurry.

When did they get so big?

I know I keep saying that, but I swear every time I go through photos I cringe inwardly at how fast time is flying by.

It's been a busy month for me so far, but I have made some good progress, too - I finished up the next Snow White Club pattern/test-knit and am midway through the last Snow White pattern.  I have tidied up the first 2 Camelot patterns (I will be co-hosting a Camelot-themed Yarn Club later this year with Fresh From the Cauldron so stay tuned for that), and I have been plugging away on some of my WiP's.  Plus, thanks to the Fart Food Party, a lot of my Spring Cleaning is done!  This week, I hope to get a fair amount of knitting done while getting a good chunk of dyeing out of the way, not to mention stocking up for the upcoming weather.  Spring, where did you go?  I thought I saw you peeking out around a corner there for a minute but perhaps my eyes deceived me.
