My knitting is just off these days. I can't seem to do anything I'm particularly thrilled with. Everything is just meh, or feh. I mentioned a creative idea I had. Well, I let it linger in the basket for a week and now I want to rip it. But I thought I'd post it first.
It's a mitered mitten ala Elizabeth Zimmerman, but I wanted it to be warmer, so I thought I'd throw some color work in there. It didn't work out how I'd planned. I wanted to emphasize the angle of the miter, but instead it's muddied. Anyway, it was a fun experiment, but I think I'll liberate the yarn. The colors are kinda meh too.
So, when in doubt knit socks. I always keep a plain sock in my purse for emergency knitting, but I've also got one going when I'm in front of the TV.
I got this bright Kroy Krazy Stripes at a Micheal's sale and the colors were calling to me. It makes me think of sunshine and green grass and blue skies. Other than that, various works-in-progress are getting a row or two added on here and there. I'm just not very excited about anything right now. I don't know what's up with that.
Angelika kindly nomiated me for the "You make my day" award. That's a nice thrill. Thank you dear. Here's something that makes me smile.
