Changing Direction

Couldn’t bring myself to keep working on the socks. There isn’t anything *wrong* with them. They’re turning out lovely, but I’m just not feeling them. So, since I’m stuck being unable to do much besides lay down and I lack a laptop, I decided to change directions and work on a new project for now to stave off the boredom while my toddler gets to watch every movie his little heart desires.

I’m working on my brother’s hat, and my knitting mojo seems to be refound. Guess I was bored? At the rate I’m going, it will be done in three days at the most and then it’s back to the socks.


There’s a little voice in my head whispering to me. “Frog them and sell the yarn at a loss. Work on something you love. Knitting is not an obligatory thing.” The voice isn’t wrong, just I don’t know if I want to frog and have to sell that yarn at a loss to me. On the other hand, it will get it out of my way and I won’t feel this nagging guilt that I don’t want to work on them. I have a few days to think it over while still being entertained with colorwork.
