The main reason I haven't written is because I really haven't been knitting all that much. I lost my "knitting mojo," as it were. I haven't given it up, not by a long shot, I've just had little motivation to pick up the needles. I've also had a lot of other things going on - work, family, sleep - that have taken priority. I've decided to squarely place a couple projects in the "UFO" (UnFinished Objects) pile - possibly to pick up again, possibly to pay someone else to finish. I've only got two projects going right now, though I am itching to start a couple pairs of socks, especially since the weather is getting colder.
Hopefully these projects will help reignite my knitting mojo. It really does help me relax and unwind. Maybe now that the new television season has started, and the Yankees have (again!) made the playoffs, I'll have some good ass-sitting time to get some hardcore knitting done.
