Knitting Funk.

I’m in a knitting funk. I don’t feel like knitting anymore. Well, more like it…I don’t feel like knitting on that poncho anymore. Or any of my other current projects. I haven’t knit in a week.

HELPPPPPP!!!

Spring has sprung and I want to knit something springy. I’m seriously considering abandoning all my current projects and starting something new. Something colorful. Something lightweight. Something I can wear relatively soon.

Maybe it’s time to work on that Textured Wrap Sweater. But…that’s got long sleeves and by the time I actually finish it, it will be summer. However, in the current issue of Creative Knitting magazine that arrived a week or two ago, there happens to be a cute little springy sweater that uses the exact yarn I bought, in the exact color!! And…here’s the kicker…it calls for the size needles that I ended up with the best swatch for when I was trying (and failing) to swatch for the other sweater. It’s fate. I think I just talked myself into making this sweater. Of course I have about twice the amount of yarn I need, and I’ll need to get the yarn for the sleeves…but it’s something that I actually want to knit.

Here’s the sweater:


It’s called “Upbeat Top”. It is very aptly named because I am definitely more upbeat now just thinking about it.

The more I type about this, the more excited I get. Begone, fall poncho! Hello, spring sweater! And it’s an excuse to buy more needles because I don’t have long enough bamboo circulars in size 7. Yippee!
