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.
- Finish the shawl for my sister. I don’t hate it, so just need to find the desire to work on it.
- 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.
- Decide on baby sweater patterns and just get going for the twins’ baby gifts.
- 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!
