The rush to get the 5 Super Scarves designed and done in February kinda did a number on my knitting mojo. I have lots of ideas and designs I should be working on, but I just couldn't get past the first few rows of any project. I was just casting on, knitting a bit and then ripppppp.... I just wasn't feeling it.
I've been here before, and the cure for me is fast, fun, little projects. You know, dish clothes, duster and tp roll covers, or my real favorite - blanket squares. I love knitting up squares for various charities. They are the perfect canvas for trying out new techniques, stitches, and color combinations.
Surrounding myself with all 4 of Mrs. Walker's fabulous stitch treasuries and a pile of assorted washable yarns, I got down to knitting squares for the Schuyler Project. This is a great project, aimed at creating blankets for parents who have lost a child. I can't imagine what that must be like, but I hope that receiving a hand knit blanket made especially for the parents might provide some comfort.
I had a blast blocking these squares using my Shark hand held steam cleaner. So happy to have finally found a use for this baby, as I must admit, I couldn't really get into steam cleaning so much (those of you out there who know me can just keep your comments to yourself about my cleaning skills in general).
So if you are feeling a little down on your needles, try a quick project that you can complete for someone else. There are no shortages of opportunities to share your creations with someone in need.
