Unusually for me, though, I have resisted casting something else on. I actually want to work on my current projects... Ok, strictly I don't want to work on them, I want them to be done, but you know what I mean *laughs*
I have loved knitting my blanket, and although I still do, I seem to have stalled. It might be because I need to work out how to add to the length while keeping the spirit of the pattern, plus the fact that it should be finished after this block so it feels like getting extra homework to have to knit more *wry smile* Ah, I really should just sit down and get on with it.
I mentioned yesterday that I am not enjoying knitting Cria. I like the fact that it is seamless, so it won't need putting together at the end, but I think seamless garments have their downsides too - the rows seem to take forever! Technically I know that in the long run it is probably no slower than knitting in sections but I don't feel like I am really making progress, which always saps my will to knit ;)
So, without casting on something new, how do I keep my motivation? Well, I have been assigning yarn to new patterns, ready for when I can start my next project (and I know there is nothing stopping me from casting on now, but I do want to get what I am working on done and dusted!)
So this yarn will become this circular shrug (shrug photo © Loopi):
And I will be making red socks in this pattern (which will be the first non-vanilla sock pattern I shall attempt, so this could inspire me or cause immense frustration *laughs* I guess we'll see!):
My purple alpaca is assigned to this simple vest (vest photo © Niina):
I have lots more projects in my queue, with plenty of yarn ready and waiting *laughs* But I think these are the top 3 contenders for when I finish what I am doing. So, hopefully reminding myself of what I want to move on to will motivate me to get finishing ;)
