I go awol when not motivated

So yeah. I haven't been knitting much. I really got unmotivated by my project. Okay, the pattern was boring as sin and took forever. The yarn I do really like. However, the pattern wasn't working for me. I felt like I wasn't making headway so I never knit on it... therefore never making headway.

Get it?

Clear as mud. When you don't have a project you like, you don't work on it! Hah!

So on Sunday I decided to rip out my 2 months or so worth of work. Okay, I pulled it off the needles. I haven't frogged yet. And tonight I started the Jasmine Fingerless Mitts. A nice easy pattern. I also have a bunch of small patterns queued up since I'm going to Toronto for a week next week and need something to keep busy! I'll probably be done these by then ;)

Hey, I just found your site, and am eager to spend some time perusing! I googled "knitting with black" because I'm bogged down/unmotivated/uninspired by this beautiful difficult (faroese) shawl I've been working on, heavenly black wool, but golly! dog hair! cat hair! Everything shows up on this! I am so close to ripping it out and moving on with my life. So I had to ask: is there a secret to knitting in black? email me? would be so grateful... celeste@collaborativecom.com. Thanks! Celeste
