Knitting Slump!

Yikes!  I'm in a knitting slump!  I can't find a project that I'm real excited to start, despite the fact that I have 105 potential projects in my "knitting queue", 875 "favorite" patterns in my Ravelry Notebook, and a room full of yarn.

Maybe it's because I'm weaning myself off of Paxil.  Have I lost the will to knit/live?  Or maybe I just need a knitting weekend with my sisters, daughters, nieces and assorted babies & dogs...  Or maybe I need to liven things up with a knitting tattoo?

Help!

OMG do not show that to Mary....

Laurie said...

I am sure there are body parts that have not been touched.

Omg! No tat! Search pinterest for knitting projects. I'll bet you'll find some good ideas there.

Okay here's what I found:

I love all of those! SOO cute. However, I know nothing about knitting so no clue if they are super hard or so easy they're insulting. :-)

those are all adorbs. I love Petite Purls. But I'm trying not to add any more patterns to the giant stacks I already have. You'd think I could find plenty of cute stuff among the hundreds of patterns and mags I already own :-) I am actually working on a pair of "crocs liners" for little Pal's "dile" shoes. They might be too big though, Mads might have to own them first.

PS I don't dare check Pinterest, bc 1. I would hate everything I own as being crappy and not cool and 2. I'd want to spend all my money on creating the fabulous projects that are on that site.

know what you mean about the slump - but plugging through anyway - and B - I already have one similar to that one - pshaw!

Knitting/Drinking weekend...I'm in. I will do the latter. Lis, I had to quit pinterest. It made me hate my life.

I'm trying to organize a knitting/drinking/cabin weekend, but your mother's political life is interfering. Go help her doorbell Bothell so we can get her out of town.
