A Bump in the Road


I don't feel like working on any of this stuff. Orangina, potentially too small. Trekking socks, not digging the pattern, think I need to go down in needle size or just plain knit. Calla Lily, I think I accidentally made the first sock too short in the foot. It was a different type of heel, so I am not sure how it is supposed to fit, and therefore, I may have cut it short. So do I make the second one short and leave it at that? Probably.

I have no idea what I want to knit. Thinking about starting some holiday gifts, though a couple of babies are coming very soon. Maybe it's this hot weather...


As for the terrace, I have no idea what is going on out there and I kinda like it that way!

I can soooooooooooooooooo identify. I frogged my Razor Cami, I just couldn't focus. I recast on for other ish and frogged it. What I'm willing to work on I ran out of yarn. I finally just pulled out an old wip. When you feel this way, spin!

isn't it so sad when you've put in all this work on a project and it just won't cooperate the way you want it to? seems totally unfair to me. i love the colors of all three of those projects so i hope they turn into something someday!

I'm a little behind in everything, including getting your parcel off to you. I hope you'll think that it's worth the wait! I really haven't forgotten about you.

I think it happens to everyone. It's similar to a closet of clothes and having "nothing to wear." I vote that you just make the other sock too short also and be done with it. Maybe lemonade to quench the summer blues, you know the kind, it starts with Mike's Hard...

Maybe a parcel from your Secret Pal will pull you out of your funk?

Yeah, I think the knitting slump is going around. Maybe starting to look forward to fall projects is a good idea. Or maybe you just need a good long shopping spree. :)

It's been hot. Who wants to knit in the heat?

I also vote for finishing Calla Lily the same size and putting them away for someone for a Birthday or Christmas. Start looking at other peoples feet for someone with a smaller foot;-)

Nice hanging outside of your terrace door. Could we get a close up on that?

Oh, I can sympathize! I just got out of a knitting slump, where none of my wips seemed quite right. Hang in there. Sometimes flipping through my knitting books gives me the inspiration I need to get motivated again.
