Knitting Slump

I've misplaced my knitting mojo.

There's really no explanation for it except that it happens from time to time.  I have plenty of yarn, plenty of unfinished projects. Just no oomph.  No obsessive must-knit-now feeling.  Maybe it's the weather - it's starting to get downright steamy here in So Flo.  Maybe it's the bleak state of things - oil pumping out into the gulf, car bombs in Manhattan. Sigh.

Thankfully, I just got an influx of knitting books. I ordered Shirley Paden's new book, Knitwear Design Workshop.

And yesterday, my friend Kerrilyn lent me the use of her library card so I raided the knitting section at the Boca Raton library.

I think I'll start there.


  1. Hey, friend, just got caught up with you - and I'm so so sad to hear the news about Harry. The new kid sure seems like he's a handful and will certainly keep you on your toes. I know Harry would be pleased that you are no longer w/o canine companionship.

    Find that knitting mojo, will you? And while you're looking, you might just find a new blogger www.blog.coversandsoles.org.

    Be well.

  2. Bobbi, it's nice to hear from you. Thanks for your sweet comments about sweet Harry. He was a special guy - the other day Yarn Widower and I were idly speculating on what our lives would be like if we had never met. When I said that he would have never met Harry, he got particularly upset.

    Congrats on your patriotic endeavors. It's an admirable thing to bring a little knitting love to our troops.
