I think i am bored....
I think i have done about as many hats as i think i can for right now. scarves don't do much for me right now (though that magic scarf may change things if i ever get the yarn to finish it ) no purse patterns are jumping out at me. i could try socks but the time i have to sit at home and do something like that (where i don't have distractions of stoplights turning green and movies that are too dark) is pretty minimal so i don't think i would ever get finished! sweaters and things hold no interest for me right now. i saw a pattern for a rug that i can't get out of my head...it is gorgeous but i don't know about the time it would take to do it and ....there appears to be a fair bit of fair isle and/or intarsia involved so i think it would not be one that i could do while i do other things as well too (does that make sense?) Anyway...i think i need a new project that is fairly easy to carry with me in my bag that i can pick up a few stitches here and there when i have time. any ideas?

Ya know, if you picked a really basic sock pattern, it doesn't take a lot of concentration to work on little bits at a time. I used the 56 stitch 56 row sock pattern from the free section of this site for my first socks and it was so easy! And socks are perfect for sticking in your bag and working a bit here and there.

I have to admit I've been a bit bored with my knitting lately too. I'm not inspired enough by ANY of my current projects to see them through, it seems.

What about mittens? They're pretty straightforward. They're fast and there is no heel to turn.

yes mittens!!!!! my first "hard" pattern was mittens... and a felted pair at that, so they hid any mistakes.

Uhhhh, you just have to actually FINISH both (unlike me)....


There's always the clogs!!!!!! :-) Easy, practice short rows, felts away mistakes... so fun that you HAVE to make 2....

lol i think it is a play on letters but most clogs don't have laces so they can "untie"



the problem with most suggestions is that i have to be able to read the pattern while i go along too, not just one i can memorize and be done with it. i do want to make some mittens though....i might be able to fudge my way through some mittens.... :thinking:

*sigh*

it's because they don't have laces... like regular shoes.... you know, untie those regular shoes and slip into your clogs... never mind....

LOL. and here I thought I was being all hilarious and stuff

I'm sorry, Hildie, I decided to tease you a little bit instead of laugh at the joke. :( Don't feel bad, I thought it was funny.
