Knitting Funk

I’m in a knitting funk right now. I’m honestly not inspired by anything I have on the needles. I keep going on Ravelry looking for the next ‘Great Project’. It’s not helping.

The test knit is trucking along. It will be done soon I hope.

My socks are…my socks. I think for the most part I will always have a pair of socks on the needles so I can build up my sock stash. I just can’t get enough of them!

I have a scarf that needs to be finished up and probably can be if I just sit down for a few hours and did it. Movie marathon anyone?

There’s that Tappan Zee cardigan in there too. It’s 3/4 of the way done and again needs a movie marathon to be finished.

I have a drop spindle that I’ve been spinning on. It’s going decent I’d say.  I have the first mini-skein (a little under an ounce) to wash up this weekend and let dry. I’m have the fiber separated out for the next mini-skein so I can try to improve upon the first one. This time I’m going to focus on my tension and twist and perhaps try to Navajo ply on a spindle. We’ll see.

I sold off a Signature Needle I’d purchased back in the fall. Decided it was in a size that I don’t use frequently and I’ve really been considering getting a set of the DPNs from Signature, but I’m not sure if I will or not.

I just feel uninspired right now. Guess I will wait it out and see if it passes.

One thought on “Knitting Funk

  1. That “knitter’s funk” feeling has been lurking inside of me for the last few weeks as well. I think I’m just getting a bit tired of it all, but then I look at my big stash of yarn and think, “Well, I can’t just waste all this stuff.” I’m hoping that knitting my way through a bunch of shorter projects will help me to get out of this. Here’s hoping we find something exciting to inspire us!
