Uh no......Can my knitting mojo be?
Seriously. It's gone. Kaput. Finis. Vanished.
I've been ill the last week with tonsillitis. The antibiotics are making me feel horrid. Jomp's kids were here for 4 days over half term. Pickle is 2 next week but thinks she's 16. I guess all these things have made my mojo run away in despair.
I've tried to hard to get it back. I've tried a few rounds of Gracie's knee high socks that are sitting woefully on the side making me feel guilty every time I walk in the room.
I've bought some yarn to make Tom a We call them Pirates hat. It's Dale of Norway. 5 balls in black.
Pattern: How to Log Cabin by Kay Gardiner & Ann Shayne from the book Mason-Dixon Knitting Yarn: Various Lily Sugar n Cream Cotton
Needles: 3.5mm Rosewwod Straights
Comments: My first attempt at Log Cabin. It's really quite addictive!
And then I tried something else new:
Pattern: Stripes (and Stripes) Forever by Chelsea Fowler-Biondolillo from the book Happy Hooker
Yarn: Various Lily Sugar n Cream cotton
Hook: 5mm Clover Soft Touch
Crocheted for: Me
Comments: My first crochet project. I'm a bit worried I might be going over to the dark side as I really enjoyed it once I got past the few row.
Then I tried something old:
These are my Hederas shown originally here but the dye had faded so I overdyed them with more Kool Aid. The keen eyed amongst you will notice that one has been blocked, one hasn't. More on that to come soon.
But alas, there is no sign of the aforementioned mojo putting in an appearance. Woe is me. What am I to do?
Edited to add..I've given up trying to format this post properly, apologies!!
