Knitting

Mid May Recap

It sucks. I am just hoping it comes back to me. But to get to that point there are some things I need to do.

  1. Finish the shawl for my sister. I don’t hate it, so just need to find the desire to work on it.
  2. Accept the fact I am not going to progress with my fingering weight sweater as is. Frog it and start with an actual pattern, not a top down contiguous sleeve concept.
  3. Decide on baby sweater patterns and just get going for the twins’ baby gifts.
  4. Stop obsessing about the fact I am not knitting. Just let it come back when I am ready for it.

I think all the stress I am putting on myself for not knitting is causing me more stress. Instead of letting myself take a break, which seems to happen every year, just not always the same time, I am trying to force the knitting to happen. Maybe I just need to recharge and get past this busy month of high school graduation!

But to be consistent, here is my Mid May Recap:

Knitting: 155 yards 0 skeins
Purchasing: 800 yards 4 skeins

Hear that sound? Yeah, that’s me sucking big time at not buying yarn! But the yarn purchased was planned, for twin babies, so I can’t be too upset. Christmas baby sweaters using the red for Vivien and the green for Owen. The shawl pattern is for me.

YTD so far

Knitting 5985 yards 31 skeins
Purchasing: 3751 yards 17 skeins

Still close to 2000 yards to the better and 14 skeins ahead, but if I don’t start knitting more that can change!

Here’s to my knitting getting turned around! And it’s not just that suffering. My blog reading is not very consistent either. Since I usually knit while reading I am not sure if the not reading is hurting the knitting, or the not knitting is hurting the blog reading? It’s a vicious cycle no matter why!

  1. I think if you buy yarn for a specific project (with a timeline to get it finished), it really isn’t stashing.

    Hope your knitting mojo comes back soon.

    Hugs!
