To say September didn’t go as-planned would be one of the bigger understatements I’ve made lately, so we’ll just say that, I suppose? After the last yardage tally, I was feeling fairly optimistic that September would be full of knitting–I had a sweater to knit for Rhinebeck, after all!


Life has a funny way of liking to change your plans, and almost immediately after my last posting… my knitting mojo abandoned me. POOF! Off it went into the aether, and it has yet to return. I wasn’t too concerned at first; it’s not unusual for my desire to knit to wane or fully disappear for a few days or sometimes up to a week and a half, but this time has been a bit different. It’s been a full month, and I’m still not really *feeling* knitting. The only yardage I racked up in September was thanks to finishing square #3 on my super-scrappy 10-Stitch Blanket and starting square #4. That’s it. No other knitting has been done. No socks. No sweaters. No quick little projects. I have tons of plans but no follow-through at the moment.

It’s bumming me out, but I know it will eventually come back, and I will be obsessively knitting again like nothing happened. So until then, I will work on other crafts. What have you been working on in the last month? Have you been getting lots of crafty projects accomplished? Have you switched into gift knitting mode with the winter holidays fast approaching?

Here’s to a more productive October!
