Out of Sorts.

To start with something positive, everyone who received something knit from me for Mother's Day was very happy with it. Now on the the fussing.

I'm just out of sorts. Nothing feels right. I keep starting projects (lace) and end up not happy with the needle size, or the yarn itself, or just the combo of the two with whatever particular pattern I happen to be trying at the moment. Perhaps I am just being fussy but... nothing fits my hands at the moment, so lots of false starts and frogging have been going on.

And then I feel like I shouldn't bother to start because I'm just going to not like it and frog it.

And I don't want to finish up any of my current projects right now.


I do feel better since sucky knitters met last night and then I went with Erin and Coleen to some place that serves Margaritas, but I can't remember the name of it. They both crack me up, and their perspectives on things often help.

If you found me because Erin (Mama-E) pointed you this way for hand cream, leave a comment or email me. I'll be happy to talk to you.

And because I really don't have anything to take pictures of besides my washcloth knitting, I'll leave you with those. Have a great day!

This knitting malaise seems to be spread a bit around - everyone seems to have a touch of it lately. Margaritas always help any kind of "out of sortsness" that I have! :)

Next time I'm down there I'll chat with you about some hand cream - mine are always dry and itchy!

Coleen said...

yay for margaritas! Had a blast with you guys last night!

Sorry I didn't show last night. Fell asleep on the couch under the dogs. By the time I woke up, I just didn't feel like bundling myself and my knitting into the car. I know the whole knitting malaise thing. Its kind of starting to bite me too.

Ooo, margaritas!
Missed seeing you last night - but I hope that I can make it in the future! ;)

Your dishclothes look great and knitting blahness is temporary. It'll all work itself out!

Sorry I couldn't join you for margheritas - I overslept the next day as it was and was late for class. Ooops.
