I have been a little silent these past few weeks. I have had a case of the knitting blues and it was hard to get motivated. A second sock? Bleh! Design my own scarf? Bleh! Watch some Craftsy to get better at 2 color brioche? Bleh! All the things I want and need to do, and I just couldn’t get those needles working!
I have been wanting to design my own projects for a while (only two so far) and I had a great idea of what to do but for some reason, the project just doesn’t hold my interest. Maybe it wasn’t such a great idea after all. It looks at me and gives me sad eyes but it hasn’t gotten any longer.
Mix that with second sock syndrome and I just didn’t want anything to do with knitting. This even resulted in less yarn bowls being done!
So what to do? I have decided to hide both WIP’s on the top shelf and start a new project and I am past the halfway mark! Each night, I put the phone down and have gotten some knitting done!
My current project is a kit from the Black Sheep event I went to in June. It is a shawls called “The Joker and the Thief” and I think it will be gorgeous when it is completed and all of the darn ends are woven in.
