Over the last few weeks, I've been suffering from Fiber-y Mojo-itis.
As frustrating as that can be, I have decided to just let it be and focused on a few other things like fiber collection, spinning some alpaca and began ripping out my Old Awesome Sweater. These were all productive fiber-y tasks but not really creative tasks and certainly they're not mind-intensive tasks.
They were the sort of tasks that allowed my mind to be free. Which created space to allow for inspiration. I now have a couple of ideas rolling around, but I am keeping my expectations low.
Spring is a busy time with getting the garden ready for planting, preparing for shearing our own alpacas as well as client alpacas. So there isn't much time for fiber-y creation anyway.
That being said, I have cast on (for the 3rd time) my first Challah Sock.
Thank you all for your encouraging words after the huge rip last month.
I have only been working on it at Knit Night. So this is the result of a few weeks, of a few hours, of non-focused knitting time. Be sure to notice that it already has a life-line. :-)
Right now I'm happy. I have a good balance of productive fiber-y time and mental space to allow some things to percolate.
Many of you said the sock would go faster. Which it seems to be. Some of you said that knitting is good and it's more time with the yarn, so enjoy it. Which I am. :-)
Happy Fiber Arts Friday!
