I'm here!

I'm in a major knitting slump ~~do you ever pick up the needles and nothing turns out right??? Well, that's what's happening here! It all started with those Opal mittens and went "to hell in a handbasket" !!!
I tried a couple scarves and hated them~frogged~I'm getting really good at that frogging thing!!
I keep looking at yarn and nothing "talks" to me! I go to bed and all these thoughts are running through my head as I'm trying to fall asleep ~~by morning??? GONE!!!
Maybe it's time to relax and get back to socks?? I liked knitting again when I was just thinking about socks~~not worrying about handles felting right,sweaters fitting,finding the right yarn.
Socks are useful,and warm(major plus for me) get to buy really nice yarn that you couldn't afford if doing a large project, socks are portable, magic loop makes for fairly quick finishing~~need I say more???
Oh yeah, it's a lot easier to blend enough yarn for a pair of socks into your stash than it is for a sweater!
Enough said!!
MY SP6 sent a pkg!!! That cheered me up! There's a photo~~and do you see sock yarn???? It must be fate! She included the cutest candle it's a ceramic acorn and it smells wonderful!! A tube of Aveeno hand cream is just what I need for my purse,and the cutest book of puppies! I love it all~~thank you SP6!!!
Almost forgot~~have you ever tried to peel the foil off of melted chocolate kisses?? Take my word for it it's not easy! KK saw me and said "just throw them out" there was no way I was giving in without a fight but unfortunately I lost! Chomping down on a piece of that foil was like scrapping fingers across a blackboard!! eewwwwww!!!
A couple of those photos are from last Sunday when KK and I went for another foliage ride! Other than being in the middle of nowhere and I needed a restroom ~~immediately it was a nice day! We went to the casino in Salamanca and had the buffet ~~it was soooo good!!! Prime rib and shrimp cocktail~~~what more could you ask for??? I could barely stay awake on the ride home.
Off to check my stash~~~

I know what you mean. I get in slumps every once in a while. Hope things get better!
