KAL to Defeat The Winter Doldrums

This week's Defeat the Winter Doldrums Swap topic is...
For some of us we get the doldrums and others don't. For the ones who get doldrums what helps you get rid of them? For the ones who don't get the doldrums, what helps you keep them away?

Well, I can start by saying today is Monday and I hate Mondays... esp ones like today when it is biterly cold and the wind is howling something fierce! bbrrrr!!!! What would I like to be doing to defeat the doldrums? Sitting at home, on my couch with a nice big cup of coffee, my knitting, magazines... watching some guilty pleasure daytime television with a dog or two (or four!) curled up next to me. But I digress and realize that I must go to work... I do have the nice big mug of coffee on my desk and I am surrounded by photos of my furbabies, so that's a start. I'll get to the knitting later tonight......

Speaking of knitting, are you like me and the boatloads of other knitters who've been meaning to cast on a Clapotis? Do you need a swift kick in the arse to do so? Then why not sign up for the Fashionably Late in '08 Clapotis KAL? I just did! I've been poking around Ravelry to see what yarn might work and think I might go with Patons SWS. I have to check my stash tonight and see if I have enough skeins of any one colorway........

So, being that it is almost Valentine's Day, Zeus was wondering if you've bought something special for your sweetie yet? If not, you have a couple days... he says hurry up and thinks this card that his Daddy bought for Mommy last year would be suitable...

I've read that SWS doesn't like to be frogged, therefore maybe not to be dropped? That being said, I see finished SWS Clapoti in Ravelry's finished projects so it IS able to be done. Maybe touch base with those knitters? I love SWS. I'm thinking a sportweight sock yarn despite that it is a freezing 8F here this morning, and for the foreseeable future. I do have loads of SWS...hmmmmm

I just joined the Clapotis KAL, too. Thanks for the heads-up. I have a ton of pictures of my fur-babies on my desk, too. Helps me to remember WHY I put up with so much crap at work some days...
