The Sewing Machine Ate My Knitting Mojo

by exercisebeforeknitting

Perhaps for lack of inspired knitting, perhaps because of the heat but whatever the reason, my sewing machine has lured me with its promise of quickly finished objects – near instant gratification compared to knitting. I say “finished” but the truth of the matter is that all of my sewn items need buttonholes or trim added so you won’t see actual FOs for a few more days. You know what I mean by “finished”…

I’ve also been working on a pair of Anastasias with the Claudia’s Handpainted (in Blue Sky colorway) that I won in Minty’s blog contest a few months ago.

I think once I clear my knitting plate of second socks and gift knitting, my knitting mojo will come back. Until then, I slog along!
