WIP #10 - When You Don't Know What To Knit

Literally, I have nothing to show.  I cast off one project, put another in hibernation till I hear back about some stash yarn since I've run out, and ripped out another (yep, frogged the Hoaloha sorry to say).  My only current project on the needles is my husband's boring sweater.  And I've only added about 5 rows to that this month!

This is a problem that needs remedying!  Typically I wouldn't even have this issue.  I'd be trying to get something done with the new project in mind and on the needles it goes when I finish one.  And that's if I wait till I finish one.  So I have a few ideas stirring in my head but I don't know what to do yet!

I want to make a dear friend of mine and my husband's a beanie.  He's been having a hard time living where he is and is away from most family and friends right now.  He also sent the whole family wonderful Christmas gifts so I'd like to do something kind for him.  I typically send him cookies since he loves my baking, but I wanted to do something a little more special.  But I'm stash diving.  So I have to figure out what yarn I have that might work for him, if any.

I've been itching to knit a hat for myself.  I especially love the Toorie hat my swap partner knit for me and am hoping to knit another cloche style hat for myself.  I want to wait on this though because I'm thinking it will be the Oak Trail Hat by Alana Dakos and I want to knit it for the Subway Knits Alana Dakos KAL (I just announced this KAL in the Ravelry Group yesterday and am very excited! Please feel free to join us!)  I recently added the Mahalo Hat by Laura Linneman to my queue.  That could be a contender, although I might be drowning in knit hats and might have to clean out my closet soon!

I could always use another pair of socks.  I've been wanting to knit Kai Mei by Cookie A forever now and have the perfect yarn for them which I finally found.  Cascade Heritage in a nice muted yellow color.  But I really should rip and redo the toe on my Black and Blue Socks first.  They've been waiting.  But I'm sick of ripping them!

See the confusion I have today!  I just don't know where to start!  But maybe that's a good thing.  Because I don't know where to start maybe I should just put the knitting aside, sit down and the sewing machine and get my daughter's Easter Dress done.  Maybe the world is trying to tell me something.  When you don't know what to knit, you should sew....

Linking up with WIP Wednesday.


  1. Oh, girl. I've never been at this intersection before. :-D I say, "yes", to casting on everything. But, I'm a bad influence.

  2. I hate when that mood strikes. I usually never have a dilemma, but sometimes, there is sooooo much I want to do, I become paralyzed just trying to make a decision. I say, sew!
