The weather has broken, and I’m numbed up enough, but what to knit?
Very thankful for the suggestion of the lace ribbon scarf from Knitty, I have abandoned it because my stash is mostly sock yarn and a few balls of Lion’s Cotton Ease.
The Socknitters and Knitlist have their knickers in a knot about Colin’s Knit Along, a group for those interested in toe up socks. Colin is quite the charmer in the messages I have read on the lists. Since I am ambitious (read: a hater) and because I want to be in the know about all things knit, I joined, interested in a new technique. I’m now attempting Judy’s Magic Cast On which is supposed to be an easier way to figure eight cast on but leaves me wondering why I do this to myself.
There’s the Prayer Shawl I’m making for an anonymous recipient, a tank for the Teen, a toy for the cats, mittens from last winter, sachets for our summer science project, and of course socks that have no mates.
The yarn and time I have. The will, not so.
I should be happy: no early morning routines, the days are truly lazy and five DVR’d Judge Judy’s waiting to be watched. Instead, I’m stuck. I have no desire to pick up needles and knit.
