I think I have knitters block. Is that even a thing? Cause I’m making it a thing. Cause it’s gotta be a thing.
I sat for an hour looking at my best-of-best stash box last night and didn’t cast on a single thing. I had my needle box open, ready to be put to use and….nothing. I’ve got enough wool to insulate a Canadian house! But I didn’t have what I was looking for. I don’t know what I was looking for, but it wasn’t in there. It wasn’t in the second-best box either. This mystical wool i was searching is somewhere, just not here. I’ll knot it when I see it.
How does one work past a knitters block? I could work on my purple Gingko crescent ,but I’m starting the lace and, well, lace + kids isn’t the brightest idea. I also have a long dormant Lilac Wish shawl with the beautiful birthday hand spun but same problem. I don’t generally don’t have many WIPs at the same time, bring a product knitter certainly helps in that department!
It’s not all bleak though, because you know what this weekend is….the Toronto Knitters Frolic! there’s no way being in a crowd of knitters with wool as far as the eyes can see won’t snap me out of the doldrums! And even better….wait for it, wait for it…Christina (A baby’s smile knits) and I have booked ourselves a resort weekend away!!! No I am not kidding! 48 hours of blissful kid free quiet! We are going to knit, sleep, knit, eat, knit, swim and throw in dome sporadic napping no doubt. Oh the pure bliss! …it’s ok the be jealous 😉
And so I don’t bore you all without a single knitting picture (it is a knitting blog after all)…
Here my very first lace project!
215 yards of heaven
Like the addict I am, I started with a single skein I fell in love with
After searching for just the right pattern, I cast on
And I couldn’t be happier with the final shawllette!
I wear it on the days I need a shot of intense colour. Which is more often that you think, lol!
So have you ever had knitters block? How did you work through it?
