A blog about my life, knitting, and other stuff.

I'm Sure There's a Really Good Sports Analogy for This

The Hexagon blanket is done. It's soaking right now to prepare for a good blocking.

Damson is done. I soaked and rinsed it many times last night. I scoured it. I rinsed more. I soaked more. It's still leaking blue everywhere. It's on the blocking board. I've kind of given up.

I knit a charity hat from some handspun.

So now what? I had no WIPs on my Ravelry page except for the vest I'm working on at the shop. I dug into my hibernating projects and pulled out the socks that I started last December. It would be nice to finish at least one pair of socks in 2009, I guess. But I'm not really feeling it. Where do I go from here?

Possibilities are Mondo Cable Cardi in Dream in Color Classy, Scroll Lace Scarf in Sheep 3, Short-Row Hat in Karaoke, Ulmus, Veyla. On the one hand, I'm burnt out on sweaters. On the other hand, everything that isn't a sweater feels insubstantial.
