What's On My Needles

I am in the awkward stage of swatching for our KAL sweater but waiting to cast on with the rest of the group. I have a few "second socks" that I COULD cast on, but I'm not feeling too inspired to do so. I've knit a bazillion swatches to help make some buying decisions for the spring/summer season and just finished up my family's "mom projects" for the year. I guess you could say I'm not feeling too inspired at the moment and I know that's okay. Our creativity ebbs and flows and it won't be long before my needles are clicking along on something totally awesome! In the meantime, I wish you many successful stitches and inspired projects!
