Mellow yellow

I'm afraid this is going to be the only knitting-related post this week.

I should be able to show you some projects on Carbethigan, though despite my plan to put two rows a night on her, I haven't even picked her up. (Though Kate Davies finished her caridgan version and it's more or less how I expected mine to look.)

I should be able to show you a finished Wildflower cardigan - but I've barely touched it. I managed to finish the second sleeve edge but that's it.

And this sad bit of knitting
Is all I have to show of the second Aldershot sock. I'm definitely not going to finish it by the end of the month.

I don't really have an excuse either. Now that I'm sewing, I usually save knitting for the evening. But come the evening, I pick up my phone and play games more often than I knit lately. I think my knitting is just feeling very stale... I need to clear out some WIPs so I can start fresh! But of course, I actually have to knit to do that!!!!

Hopefully this week will be more productive.

My knitting has gone stale at the moment too. I've got too many old things in the works and it's a real drag. I think the warmer weather isn't helping either.

I hit slumps, too. Just roll with it and it will return with ideas and energy soon-February does that to ya!

Sometimes it's best to do nothing...or play games...but you are, of course, right...you need to knit to clear out those projects. You will...Spring is coming! fletch saw some crocus buds the other day!!

I feel you, but I have decided to just let the crafting speak to me and not force it. Good luck with your finishes!

Such a pretty cuff.

It's good to mix things up a bit. You'll soon get back to your knitting projects with renewed interest.

There is an ebb and flow to everything!

Give your self some time. WE don't need constant knit updates. I'm working only on a shawl so you are going to get shawl photos for a long while. :) Sometimes we have a lull before ......we produce a lot. Just like our gardens!

What a beautiful, cheerful colour. I love it. I've been in a slump for the past 2 months, so I know it feels, but with spring on the horizon, I think we will all soon be feeling much better.
