Super Slacking

I feel like it has been a ridiculous amount of time since I wrote a blog post (which it has) as well as a ridiculous amount of time since I actually completed a project. That's pretty true too.
Normally after the rush of gift knitting at Christmas, I am so excited to cast on something new for myself and I will knit happily away until something is done. That doesn't seem to be the case this year. I'm not sure if it's that I didn't do much Christmas knitting at all or if I didn't really get that excited cast on immediately following. Either way I am seriously slacking in the knitting department lately.
Let me show you my one and only turn-in for Harry Potter Knit & Crochet House Cup this month.
Yup, that's it. A lonely little hexipuff. I have been slacking big time in the knitting department lately and it doesn't seem to be lack of time or lack of desire to knit so what gives?
I'm not sure why but I have been finding myself just sitting lately. Even in the evening when I'm watching TV with my husband sometimes I just sit and that is very unusual for me. 
I'm within an afternoon's worth of knitting from finishing the first in a pair of socks and I think I have another pair that just needs a toe (on the second sock so it's so close to being done!) so I will try to stick to those for today and tomorrow but maybe on Wednesday (start of a new month so new items can count for the House cup) I should find something just for me that I'm really excited to knit and get it started. Hopefully that will mean more progress and actual finished items. And possibly getting rid of the slacker status.
