Hark! Chanknits has knitting content!
I think today’s Knitting Daily helped me see the light… you know, the light that shines down deep into my knitting bag, letting me see my missing mojo for the first time in months.
See Barbie’s dresses? THAT is why I can’t knit, can’t finish what I do have on the needles. I’ve been knitting with larger-gauge yarns/needles, when I know I enjoy finer/thinner yarns better.
I started putting this together over the weekend. ALL of the cardigans I’ve purchased this spring have been very fine-gauged, certainly no more than DK weight, and than one has a rather open weave. Most are lace to fingering, to put it in knitter’s terms.
Everything I have on the needles is worsted, save one laceweight project, which is the one I’ve at least been talking about finishing. No wonder I can’t make my hue-appealing, worsted cotton pick a pattern it wants to become! At least right now, I don’t want to wear anything that bulky, so…
Hrmph. Pack up that pretty cotton and find me some Tofutsies or something… I’m thinking a longer, thinner, crescent-shaped shawlette-scarf? No need to scare my tender mojo away right off the bat…
