Knitting slump

I am in a knitting slump for one very simple reason - have an FO that makes me look huge - don't know if I can get up the courage to post the most unflattering picture of it here.

All I can say is - no more boatnecks for me .

While I gather up my courage - I leave you with a little bit of my other crafty pursuits


Eightsome Reel from Papillon Designs

I can identify with the slump but I'm sure you'll bounce back soon! I would love to see some pics of your latest FO but if you're not keen on showing, it's ok. There will be knitting hits and misses but we can always hope that we have more successes than flops :)

Hope you jump back on the knitting horse soon. I completely understand though, bad FO really put a damper on things. I had quiet a few last year.

Love the bookmark though. :)

Mona, I know about the boat neck slump, things could be worse - it could be the boat neck with cap sleeves slump - I knitted something like that last year, whch shows my worst bits. But you know, it's so comfortable that I end up wearing it quite a lot. Just don't really look in the mirror too much :) Hope the slump lifts, meanwhile, sew away.

Donate the sweater....or frog it and make something else. Don't keep what makes you unhappy. I know, that sounds extreme....but, life is short; be happy!

Hope you get back to knitting soon. But anyways, I'm loving the Eightsome Reel, can't figure out how on earth you do it!!!

Your cross stitch piece is gorgeous! Never saw anything like it! That is what is great about having different crafts available to us we can go back and forth as the desire hits us. I too knit, cross stitch, quilt, you name it . I do whatever the mood tells me. Don't worry, you will be knitting again in no time!

I understand your feeling. That is why I like to knit or crochet using fine yarn. Yes, it will take forever to finish, but the result is really worth it.
