Oh, Florida weather.
Florida’s nickname is the Sunshine State, but anyone who’s lived here long enough and perhaps visited frequently enough will be able to tell you that during the summer, it rains every. Single. Day. And I like the rain, and we apparently always need the rain when it happens (you’d think that, living at sea level and on glorified swamp land, we’d have enough moisture, but apparently not).
However, the constant raininess has its drawbacks. Like the fact that I can’t get good lighting after work for taking finished object or work in progress pictures. I have a pair of socks finished, and another pair just started, and lots of progress on my February Lady Sweater, but no photos to show for it.
And I hate making photo-less knitting posts. Knitting is incredibly visual and I feel like I should have visuals to share. Perhaps today will be the day, or some time this weekend.
In the meantime, I do have some yarn photographs I can share!

Dream in Color Smooshy in the Purple Rain colorway. This is such a super deep purple that it frequently photographs way too dark, but I managed to capture the purple tint.

One of my knitting pals recently lamented the fact that she’d finished her February Lady Sweater. Her problem? Now she had to start something else. She much prefers to be in the middle of a project, or near the end, finishing it up. As dear as she is, I do think there’s something wrong with her, as I’ve never met a knitter who doesn’t have a constant, raging case of starteritis. I myself am trying, successfully for now, to fend off the need to have about five socks on needles (three of them are designs that are currently living in my head, which I think is part of the problem).
Maybe one day I will have those socks knit up, and it will stop raining long enough for me to show them to you.
