I’m sort of getting knitting burnout. I’ve been working on the same projects for so long, that I’m getting sick of them. I don’t want to start something new, because then I know the current stuff won’t ever get finished, but I don’t have much desire to work on them anymore. Which means less knitting going on.
I’ve got DH’s afghan, that is getting close to being finished. I’m almost done with the 4th of 6 strips, then I need to sew them together and make a border. I have a lace shawl that I really like working on, but I put it aside to finish DH’s afghan. I’m also working on Amelia’s Christmas stocking. That’s kind of fun and I’m close to finishing it. I’m just past the heel, so I only have the foot and the toe to do. Thank goodness it’s only one, and not a pair like normal socks. The fair-isle isn’t the best looking, but it at least keeps the project entertaining. I’ve also got a granny square afghan going that is stalled because I’m working on a border that is going slow. My last project is my sister’s wedding afghan. I was making really good progress on it, then decided to get DH’s afghan done first. If I can finish it by the end of December, then I can pick up the wedding afghan and still finish it (if I keep the pace I had before) well before the June deadline, although she tells me it doesn’t matter since they won’t need it til at least Sept/Oct.
So that’s 3 afghans, a stocking and a lace shawl. I’m close to finishing the stocking, and I know I could knock out the granny afghan in no time, since I plan to work til I run out of yarn and I have 2 balls left. I may have to switch gears away from DH’s afghan for just a little bit, so I don’t get turned off knitting all because of the one blanket that never seems to end. That’s what I get for making a blanket for my 6’1″ tall husband.
I think I just need to refocus on a few of my neglected projects so that it feels new again. That way I’m still getting something done and not completely taking a break from knitting.
