Have you ever had a knitting slump? I have had very few in my knitting lifetime. But right now I am in a big one. I usually knit at my son's swim practice or watching TV in the evenings. I knit in car line when I am waiting to pick up my youngest from school. I usually have to have my knitting with me , "Just in case," I have a spare moment. I knit through every season, and every issue that comes up in my life.
But right now I am not that excited about any knitting. I have two projects on the needles. One a lovely tank top that I know is going to be a bit big on me, yet I continue knitting on. I know that sounds crazy and I checked my gauge, but I can't stand to rip it all out. Sometimes knitting is about knitting for me, and not actually the end product. Someone I know will fit into it.
I have a lovely pair of socks started and I am just approaching the first heel. I am not experiencing second sock syndrome, known to most knitters, I am in the middle of first sock syndrome. Is there any medication for that?
I have been working a little extra these last few weeks. We have had more company visiting, but still that isn't an excuse. My kids are wacky as usual and that usually makes me knit.
I think knitting makes up a bit of who I am. I love yarn, yarn stores, yarn blogs, knitting friends and family. I love talking knitting, reading about knitting and smelling yarn fumes. I hope I get back into it soon, as right now I fell a little lost without my drive to knit.
