Again, I know its been forever. Wow. 8 months. Crazy.
Well, on the knitting front its not going well. I’ve started new projects, ripped out old ones and I still don’t want to knit. I’ll sometimes walk past my yarn cabinet and look at my yarn.
I miss it.
I sometimes want to knit but I just don’t have the ambition to. I guess that’s what has kept me away from here. I feel like I have to write about knitting but I really have nothing to say about it.
This past weekend I did decide to cast on for a new pair of fingerless mitts. My youngest son is heavily involved in ice hockey and after spending a full day at the ice rink wearing a very old pair of fingering weight mitts, that really aren’t warm. I decided I needed & deserved a warmer pair.
I’m using the red, it is lovely and so soft. Hopefully I can make myself actually finish them.
I have been spending a lot of my time traveling with my youngest’s ice hockey. It keeps us busy from August until May. Its fun but it is a little overwhelming. I thought it would give me a lot of chances to knit but I find myself too busy talking to other hockey moms, taking pictures or wrapped up in the action.
My goal is to have at least one mitt finished by the end of the week. Let’s see how that goes 😉
