My yarn bowl has sat empty for a good while. Though I've been doing a bit of crochet, my knitting mojo has waned. I've searched high and low for inspiration... I would see something and almost get interested enough to start... then nope... not feelin' it... almost get interested... then NOPE... nothing.
Last week, I dragged out a LONG UNFINISHED project (still not The Unloved). It was a sweater I started in my early knitting days... I used a VERY different yarn than the pattern called for... came out with GORILLA sized arms; frogged and re-did it; and, probably then, realized I didn't have enough yarn to finish it.
In desperation to get myself moving forward, I found some yarn that will WORK to finish it. Now, it is NOT going to win any glamour awards. But, people, I need to get back on the train! And, function will serve me nicely. It will be my Gardening Cardigan. ;)
I NEED to get going again BECAUSE, I have seen ONE sweater that has stayed and stayed and stayed on my mind after seeing it on a TV show. I don't even remember exactly what the show was... but, the lady had on this gorgeous white sweater... just a bit of lace pattern...
And, I have searched out a yarn I THINK will be like I remember that sweater... and found a pattern, not exact but similar enough... I THINK. I ordered the yarn and am hoping my knitting mojo will arrive in the same package. Until then, I'm going to try to force it back with the Gardening Cardigan. ;)
