i think i may be in a knitting slump. i knit and knit and knit and all i end up with are blanket squares. every time i look through my stash trying to come up with a new project, i end up turning to the super fast and simple 7″ garter square. i look longingly at my sock yarn, but i don’t have the energy to wrestle with my DPNs; i think of a scarf either for myself or the red scarf project, but i don’t want to search for a pattern or mess with cables; i see my felted tweed and imagine the cardigan, but i can’t even consider of testing another swatch. i managed to knit my dad another mason-dixon dishcloth earlier in the week and felt very accomplished. what’s wrong with me?! i certainly don’t mind doing squares (they’re going to the ghana project), but i’m used to having a bit more variety. how can i snap out of it?
i have been doing some embroidery, though. i was behind on last week’s lesson, but i got through that one and now i’m ready to start the new piece, as soon as i figure out how i want it to look.
the big thing for this post, though, is that my grandma is finally really having the surgery for her cancer on monday morning. if you haven’t been reading around here for very long, this post and this post have a few more details about her situation. please keep her in your thoughts and prayers this week as she has the surgery and recovers. hopefully the cancer hasn’t spread.
one last (and less important) thing. if you drink coca-cola products and don’t collect the mycokerewards points, i would looove it if you would email me the codes! i got sucked into collecting them and now i need a bunch more to be able to get something even remotely good.
