I'm feeling kind of blah. Tired and grumpy. Not enthusiastic about much.

The bolero isn't going my way. The back is done, but I've restarted one of the fronts three times now and I think I might have to frog it again. I'm sure it's not a difficult design, but the instructions are vague and complicated. At least to me. Yesterday I was about to frog the whole thing and forget all about my bolero impuls...

I've knit another four rows on Muir. Didn't touch it for the longest time. Again. I don't know what it is about Muir... I'm excited about the design and I love my yarn choice, but there's something keeping me from working on it for longer periods of time. I still have more than half of the shawl left to do and I've had it on the needles since September or something...

There's no other knitting project calling out to me. I've gone through my binder with patterns and I've fondled my yarn stash... Nothing. I love many of my yarns but I don't know what to do with them. I don't feel like knitting anything huge as I'm scared of my low battery charge at the moment. I don't want to knit something small and fiddly as I don't want my fingers and hands to start acting up. I don't want to knit anything that needs me to sew pieces together as I've developed a grunt against seaming. Blah.

I know the will/urge/need for knitting will reappear. I'm just a bit frustrated at the moment. Maybe a package from my yarn swap partner is exactly what I need? :)


Work is sending me out of town for a two-day-seminar but I'd rather just stay home and sleep. Hopefully, I'll get excited when I get there.


I keep working on my 101 things in 1001 days-project and I quite like it. Gives me some focus.

Have you checked it out?

Sorry you are feeling so blah - but how great of you to still go to the gym! I do hope that your training goes well this week and that you do have some time to relax. It is hard to not be motivated to knit - but it will come back! :kram:

Hej Anna!

I hope your seminar goes/went well!

The knitting bleh hits us all. You'll have the needles flying again in no time.

I can't wait to see what your swap partner sends you! How exciting to have a surprise coming!

Oooh, Anna! I'm excited that you've heard from your partner! I can't wait for everyone to start receiving their swap packages. I hope you get a battery re-charge very soon. :kram:
