Knitting, or getting in the mood to knit, has been tough for me over the last few years. I'm not sure why. Initially, I thought it was the loss of a regular knitting group to participate in. But that's not it. Have I lost my lurv of yarn? Hardly. I still love it, just not feelin' what to do with it. So what's up?
I don't have any answers for this. I know I've been busy with other things, but I think I've let them get in the way of making time for knitting.
My daughter recently got an American Girl doll. How is this related to knitting you ask? Well, these dolls need clothes. I love to sew and then I decided to hit Ravlery to see what sort of little knitted items might be available. Wow. So many cute things to choose from! I started a small afghan, (because my daughter informed me that the dolls get cold at night) and I'm hoping that her enthusiasm for these dolls and my desire to see her happy will kickstart my knitting!
