Hoping Is Not The Same as Actually Knitting

Normally, I don't like to make posts without photos. I know how much I look forward to blog posts with pictures of what the writer is knitting. I feel bad that this will probably be the only post this week but I wanted to get something up, to get back into the habit of posting regularly. I just have nothing to show from my limited knitting time.
I'm mostly working on my OWL project for Harry Potter Knit and Crochet House Cup which is a sweater. I'm woefully behind and it looks the same as it always does. It's the Cambridge Jacket but with some modifications. As of October 31 I should have been 50% through the sweater. I'm nowhere near that far. I'm still working on the back. That means I have to finish the back, knit two sleeves and two fronts. Something is going to have to give if I'm going to get it done in time for the deadline which is at the end of November. (Hint: It will be housework, it's always housework that gets neglected.)
The problem is that my wonderful husband has shared some germs with me. I have a cold and I keep finding myself just sitting and holding my knitting. It seems like it's too much work to actually knit. Then, when I actually feel almost human again and I can sit and knit, our little kitten comes and sits on my lap, the cold weather has been great for encouraging her to do that and I love our little snuggle time but she does not like me to knit. She tries to chew the yarn and the needles and anything else she can reach. That does not work for me so I usually just set it aside for a bit.
The truth is, I need to get in gear, I need to get knitting and get going or I'm not going to make the deadline. Maybe posting this here, publicly admitting how behind I am will get me in gear. Let's hope!

It's not just you! I'm not sick but i'm having one of those weeks where nothing is appealing knitwise... and I have too many wips to start anything new to try and get the mojo flowing. Maybe use this time to work out a knitting plan instead?
