just plain bored.

*sigh* I'm tied into completing some gift knitting and have high hopes for completing the other projects on needles before getting distracted and starting another project...

...sadly, I'm bored bored bored! The gift knits are easy knits, can be done anywhere, but I'm tired of knitting them (scarves. Two of them. At the same time. On the same needles. What was I thinking?!) The other unfinished projects? Cozy, of course - with 2 huge skeins of yarn to go (but I'm half way done!). I've considered ripping the thing out, and using the yarn for something else - but I don't know if I have enough yardage...the current candidate for the yarn should I be possessed to rip, is a wrap/throw from Alice Starmore...mmmm....aran knitting! The other project? Socks :D I'm on the cuffs...K2P2 ribbing...I've only got about a centimeter done...and it goes FOREVER because it's on US3 needles! The good news is I knit both socks together on the same circular needle (hooray for the magic loop - it's saved me from Second Sock Syndrome) so at least once I'm done, I'll have a pair of socks :D

Anyone else hitting a crafting slump?

BTW, I love my wheel...gratuitous yarn photos will be appearing sometime in the not too distant future :D

I'm bored too. Knitting is boring, spinningis boring, origami is boring, everything is boring. I'm in a huge slump. I will come around but...

Same deal as last month, bored.
Has something, maybe everything, to do with the discontinuation of the green tea crack-a-cino.
Death to the evil empire, now that they no longer stock my drug of choice. 6 wks ago I asked for help out of boredom on my blog, and wish I could pass on the very words of advice that got me through, but I can't remember, and I am too lazy to go look it up. Something about all of those suggestions made me want to do the exact opposite, which at least got me going again. Hey, good luck with that! You can thank me later for being totally useless.
