Frustrated... a knitting vent...
Ok, so I have finished a few wonderful projects, but now I feel "stuck". I am currently in between projects and I feel directionless. I have half the yarn for a sweater that I want to make, but the other half I can't get in Canada and I need a lot of it (for the body) and it seems too expensive to me (it iwll be about a 150.00 sweater). Specifically, I need a turquoise eyelash yarn and they are pricey. I need about 800 yards in total.

The other problem? Besides that sweater, I don't have anything I want to make. I just don't feel inspired anymore. I want something challenging, but not so much that I feel overwhelmed. I want something hip and cool too. I am just in yarn limbo and need a project to pull me out. Any ideas? Something not too pricey (think under 50.00 total), that doesn't have a ton of boring repetition, and something that will last a while. Pretty tall order huh? I know...

Wow, I feel a bit better already...
