Hey everyone. Since I'm off from school for the summer and don't have a regular job, I've been knitting obsessively for the past month. I've made a ton of things and learned so much . . . but I don't know what to do now! I'm wanting to gradually start Christmas presents, but that's not a pressing thing or something that I'm really wanting to dive into immediately.
I just did a Fair Isle hat, and I did a pair of socks (though one of them has a Goliath heel), a felted bag, and just some other random things. I feel apathetic about starting Christmas presents (and I'm in the middle of a Christmas present scarf - but BLEH I DON'T want to just do rows and rows and rows of k2p2 ribbing right now), and I just want to keep trying new things. I'm looking through patterns today and just don't care for any thing - I've never had knitting apathy before! I've been getting more and more excited about it each day, but I just feel like I lack direction.
Does anyone have ideas for new and exciting things to try - a new pattern or technique to learn? Please share! :D
These look a little tougher, the mitts are gorgeous, the vintage vest isn't really *hard* per se but I find the vintage pattern tricky to understand, and the hat is a bit different (and yes, I am planning to make it for myself as well as my DD lol).
