While I have plenty to keep me inspired with my quilting, I’ve hit a rut with my knitting. I really want to finish Dad’s Christmas sweater, but I just can’t seem to muster up any enthusiasm for it. Maybe because it’s plain, maybe because so big, maybe because it’s grey…
I decide I needed to cast on something new to recharge my knitting juju.
And apparently…. something also grey! I don’t know why. This silvery Slinky Cat just spoke to me when I went stash diving.
I’m knitting Crimson Blossom. I knit it a few years ago for a coworker’s wedding, an I enjoyed every minute of it.
I had some dark grey beads that were just perfect, and so far it’s been just the thing to get me excited about knitting again. Except for one small thing.
I realized after getting all this done, that I was using a needle that was smaller than the pattern called for. It was going to turn out much to small if I kept going.
So it’s all been ripped back and I’m starting again. But it’s okay… I’m still feeling the love for it!
