Making progress? No. Making nothing…

knitted Christmas blanket project

So here I am, sitting and feeling like I have nothing accomplished. I have knitters block that’s going as deep as a Mariana Trench. No motivation, no ideas, no willpower what-so-ever.

Blank…

Or maybe not totally blank, but no comforter for Christmas…

Mittens for Christmas. Or maybe a set – mittens, hat and cowl.

I was so disappointed with the block I made last week. It was too soft and sloppy – like a worn-out and faded sweater. Ghastly, in one word.

I really wanted to show some progress today. And I really don’t want to come in front of you with empty handed. And I don’t.

It’s not exactly comforter. Nor a block. It’s not even a starting point of it.

Mittens… I am knitting mittens. With cables.

And this yarn is absolutely perfect for it.

I don’t know what happens to my big plan. I have not given up just yet. I just have to get over my knitters block…

Any ideas how I can do that?

    Don’t feel bad; it happens to all of us. Plus it’s Mercury Retrograde: a time when communications muck up & brand new projects tangle. It’ll be over the first day of Autumn. But some ways I get over my block? First I take a deep breathe & consider the possibility that I’m complicating things & expecting too much (I have a really bad habit of doing that with my knitting, lol). If you have any projects you’ve been really wanting to make but keep putting them off for some reason, try one of those instead of your comforter right now. That comforter just isn’t ready to be born yet. I dedicated this year to those kinds of projects & am so happy I did!
    Good luck & I can’t wait to see what you make. šŸ™‚

      What a nice idea – I have been thinking of making knitted lace gloves for theater and church and such…. I have to think about that. Thank you šŸ™‚
