The State of Things

Have you ever been in an in-between place with your knitting? I finished Tambourine except for the buttons, which I have yet to purchase, and my commute socks are just this side of being done. I need to do some planning for my next project, which I usually love to do, but instead I'm just swatching random yarns and playing with them.

 Not that it's a bad thing, but there's no real progress toward casting on a project. I'm still debating sweater ideas but accessories are looking pretty good too. And then I can't decide if I want something easy-peasy or something challenging. Should I buy new yarn? Should I use stash? A combination, maybe? I just can't make a decision and that's very unlike me. One thing I do know is that I like this combination of yarn colors (and for the record the pinky red and browny green are new yarns).


  1. I see a zig-zag cowl, missoni inspired.

  2. Oh no, it sounds like you might have early symptoms of startitis! I hope you find the next perfect project soon-sounds like there are tons of possibilities!

  3. I also sometimes end up in this in-between stage, just take your time to figure out what you really want, at least you'll be working on a project then that you stand behind 100%!

  4. I think you and I must have had a Freaky Friday moment! I always love your yarn/pattern combos, so I'm excited to see what you choose to cast on.
