Want to see how much progress I’ve made on Dale’s Musselburgh Hat over the last two weeks?
I have not been knitting much and I’m not sure why. To be perfectly honest, I don’t adore that yarn/pattern combo. I almost ripped it out before I posted about it two weeks ago, but then I reconsidered and decided that I was liking it more as it grew.
So it’s not that.
Maybe it’s that it’s simple knitting and not engaging my brain enough? I used to knit so much at meetings and school events and I needed mindless knitting for those occasions but I don’t have those opportunities as much as I used to.
So it could be that. And if it is then the solution is to start something more complicated.
I’ve always been in the habit of knitting while watching television and we definitely don’t watch as much in the summer because we’re outside more in the evenings.
So it could also be that. And if it is, then the solution is to bring my knitting outside.
Or maybe it’s just a knitting slump. And if it is, then I’m not sure what the solution is.
But I do want to solve the problem because, odd as it may sound, I really miss knitting. Or maybe I just miss the love of knitting?
If you’ve been through this I’d love to know what you did to jump start your enthusiasm for knitting.
