Crafty disarray

Monday, 20 February, 2012

A sock that’s barely past the toe.

Simple ribbing slowly becoming a slouchy hat.

Cross stitched squiggly lines. There is a design here, but it may not look like it yet.

One of my favorite color combinations acquired, yarn wound, swatch complete. Jumping on the Color Affection bandwagon.

I’m a bit scattered right now in ways I never, ever am. For someone who shudders at the thought of having more than one project on the needles this looks suspiciously like four WIPS. THE HORROR.

I’m floating from project to project in an attempt to force myself back into knitting. And it is helping, although with this many projects going at once it’s hard to see progress because I really am working on all of them, albeit at a fraction of my usually gusto.

I know my crafty mojo will come back to me sooner rather than later, and for right now I’m enjoying my dalliances with different yarns and threads. I’m knitting one project flat, one in the round, and one on double pointed needles. And although I usually swear up and down that I don’t like it, I’m working on two projects with single ply yarn.

And now I must go – the hat is telling me to go work a few rounds before my day begins, and who am I to argue?

    You and I may both lose our “monogamous knitters” cards! I’m working on a few things, too. Worse yet, I seem to be acquiring yarn faster than I can knit it, and I DON’T STASH…or didn’t.
