So, you guys know that I am currently going through a knitting rut. I absolutely hate it! I have started and taken out numerous projects over the past few months. Simultaneously, I have been working on a vest from a rowan pattern forever. Well, I haven’t really been working on it; I just pick it up every few days, knit a couple of rows, and then throw it in the floor somewhere.
It was the basket weave design of the pattern that I was originally drawn too. Now that I am basically finished this extremely tedious project I have come to the realization that basket weave is awful and frumpy- looking (no offense to anyone who’s into it). So what’s a girl to do? Take out the project? Give it away? Try to turn it into something else? I don’t know. This may seem like a minor problem but my life feels off balance without a beautiful knitting project to run home too. While I have recently taken to leather working, knitting will always be my first love. Since I haven’t been knitting much I have been combing various knitting sites (Ravelry, Knitty, Kim Heargreaves, and Rowan) for knitting patterns and inspiration. Here’s what I came across:
It’s not usually this difficult for me to find inspiration. I mostly write my own knitting patterns, unless it’s a Twinkle pattern. So this is unchartered territory. I’ll keep you updated on the status of the knitting rut.
