Knitting slump.

I'm such a slacker and my knitting is just...crippled. Does that word even work in relation to knitting? I don't care, it does now. Seriously, when will I climb out of my knitting slump? It's really quite pathetic. I've tried to remedy it by starting different projects only to end up frogging them or shoving them away later, never to see the light of day again. Nothing is inspiring me. I even went to the yarn shop last weekend and tried to get some inspiration. I ended up buying a couple of skeins of Berroco Ultra Alpaca to make my dad a scarf for his birthday and so far, it's the only project I've actually been somewhat, kiiinda interested in. It's a scarf, though, and scarves are boring. I did buy a Lantern Moon sheep tape measurer and he makes me so very happy!

I signed myself up for the Malabrigo March 2009 that's going on in the Malabrigo Junkies group on Ravelry with plans to make Imogen (a sideways knit cardigan) out of the five skeins of Malabrigo Worsted in Black Forest that Delpha bought me for my birthday last September. I've had plans to make it for a looong time and I'd like to before the weather gets warm. Besides, since it's knit from side to side, it might actually keep things interesting! And even if it is entirely stockinette stitch, it's Malabrigo so that makes everything okay. I think everyone in the world needs a sweater made out of Malabrigo.

Bummer you're in a slump! Whenever I'm in a slump it's because I've been distracted by a new crafty hobby, and I usually get bored of it quickly and get back to knitting. I agree, everyone needs some Malabrigo in their life!
