Shocking!

There has been a surprising lack of progress being made on the knitting front (hence all the random posts about things not related to knitting). But people out there have been getting shit done and I have been feeling the pressure of binding off my first project of the new year. That isn’t going to happen, people, partly because I am slightly bored with the projects I’m working on.

socks for ezra

Socks for EZ-E. I decided to do an afterthought heel (as discussed recently over at the YH) so right now this project is just knitting, around and around until they are the right length.

furry scarf

A furry scarf to go with the hat I am making for my Totally Awesome Sister. It’s plain garter stitch, back and forth back and forth, until I run out of yarn.

isaac's sweater

Lastly, a sweater for I-6. I’ve finished the shaping and am now just going around and around in stockinette stitch until it’s long enough. Also I really don’t like this yarn.

Anyone sensing a trend here?

On the upside, I found these at a new-to-the-area supermarket the other day.

I can’t tell you how tickled I was. Would you like a Jelly Baby? Hah!

    You know, eating babies is probably BAD. ;)

    I know what you mean about boredom. Those sleeves are making me insane… I think you need to cast on for a non-boring project, like some certain Cookie A. socks… :)

  2. Oh, I have sooo totally been there. I think that was happening to me right before I took on two – not one, but two – lace wraps. Now that I have finished the wraps (and actually found myself craving some simple knitting) I have decided that it is prudent to have a simple project, and a challenging one going on simultaneously, so that I may choose. Unfortunately, I am now in the throws of knitting Tomtens…. I think I’m going to need some variety soon….

    Maybe I should take my own advice. :D

  3. I wish my babies were that sweet :)

    The socks look good, but I hear you on the non-motivation. Bleh. I don’t want to do anything.

  4. sounds like you need to do something a bit more complicated…why not throw in some cabling at the bottom of that sweater? maybe do some swatches.

    its okay to change a pattern if you need to, you know–you don’t HAVE to do it like the plan says if said plan is boring you to death.

    So Jen, the jelly babies look delicious–just like my babies!

    Do you feel like you are going round and round in circles these days? lol I know that feeling well!
