  • My Lost Knit Mojo

    My Lost Knit Mojo

    Hey guys, I know it’s been awhile so I’m definitely do for a blog post but I have a huge problem. I’ve lost my knit mojo.  I don’t know how it happened and I don’t know when it happened but it’s true.  I started the year with moderate knit goals – hats and mitts all year long.  It seemed like an achievable goal because I`ve been craving mindless knitting and the pleasure of a goal quickly achieved but even that has slipped away from me. 

    Ashley has been very sympathetic, tempting me with beautiful patterns on Instagram and pictures of beautiful yarn that she`s at home dyeing. She even hand delivered, not one, but three beautiful skeins of yarn two weekends ago and I`ll admit I was tempted.  I thought I could feel my mojo returning.  I pick them up and give them a squish, cuddle them for a few minutes, think of the possibilities and then set them back down.  I think the problem is every time I feel like knitting I immediately feel like I ought to be doing something else or finishing a project that I`ve already started and by the time I finish the negotiating process I give up and go and find something else to do.

    A few projects definitely did catch my eye though. Have you guys seen Joji Locatelli`s, The Easy One pullover? It looks amazing and promises right there in Ravelry no shaping and no crazy shortrows.  I’m thinking very seriously that this sweater will be the project I take on my long trek to India next month.  Also, regardless of my lost mojo, I just bought the Counterbalance Mitts pattern by Stephanie Lotven which is on sale until February 28th.  I am totally going to use the Sport that Ashley just brought me for this.

    RSBSY Winter KAL - Sweater Weather

    If you guys have been following us on Instagram and Facebook you would know that we have recently dyed up a huge batch of Superwash Worsted in a variety of colours. We can’t seem to get enough of the all the fabulous sweater patterns that are out right now! It should be no surprise, then, that our winter KAL would be sweater themed.

    The KAL will run from February 1st, 2018 to March 31st, 2018 and the prizes will be announced on April 4, 2018 and will be chosen by a random generator. Join our Rav group and post a picture of your finished object on this thread by midnight on March 31st, 2018 in order to qualify. I guess I don’t have to state the obvious but, just to be sure, your sweater must be knit with at least one skein of RSBSY in order to qualify for the prizes and be included in our “Round Up” blog post.

    Find us on Instagram as @redsockbluesockyarnco
