Lost: Knitting Mojo

Posted on Wednesday, November 24, 2010 in Knitting, Life

Ask me a question: Have I started my Giftmas knits? Nope. I fail. My knitting mojo has been tossed into the void. I have a lot of things I want to cast on for  but when it comes down to it, I don’t have the energy at the end of the day to actually follow through. Plus, I’ve got other things on my mind that make my thoughts scattered and hard to focus. One finds it nearly impossible to concentrate.

Wha, Blogger confusion.

Posted on Wednesday, November 24, 2010 in Web

OK. Beyond confused right now. I was trying to log in to my old old Blogger account and I apparently hadn’t logged in since before Blogger changed over completely to Google. Yeah, that old.  So I got an email sent so I could regain access to my blogs. Well, the link took me to a page wherein Blogger told me I was about to claim a large number of blogs and about half of them are Frank’s. Half mine, half Frank’s. Frank’s blogs that he still updates. They are not my blogs. They are for certain associated with his account. Why does Google think they are my blogs?

Really, I want access to my old blogs so I can take them completely offline. And I’m feeling frustrated that I can’t do this like right now. Plus I don’t want to contact him about this. Really, just no.

Spinning

Posted on Thursday, November 18, 2010 in Spinning

I’d really like to return to my spinning experiments sometime. I have a whole alpaca fleece waiting to be processed and I have at least 4 braids of roving I could be spinning. Also, my broken spinning wheel is waiting to be fixed. I’ve made such little progress on the spinning front this year, I’m disappointed in myself.

Giftmas is looming around the corner

Posted on Tuesday, November 9, 2010 in Knitting

Giftmas knitting. Every year I wonder if I should knit some gifts for the special people in my life. Last year I went all out and made three knitted presents and it was hard. This year, I am not sure if I’ll go crazy like that but I am already planning at least a few gifts. My friend (one of the only friends I have made in Lavonia) has a little girl who adores wearing hats and I’m definitely making her a cute Spiral Hat. I would also like to knit something for her, not sure what though. I am sometimes hesitant to knit for friends because I am not sure they will appreciate the effort that goes into hand knit gifts but I am not worried about that with these friends. I know my gifts will be cherished and actually used! Unsure about family gifts. Last year I knit my mom a feathery pretty Wisp,  my sister received beautiful cabled gauntlets and my grandma got a blanket. And with less than 50 days left until Giftmas, I don’t think I can tackle 5 projects. I am a slow, procrastination prone knitter. No denying it, I can take a long time to finish projects.

For the next few days I’ll be brainstorming for ideas, because if I am going to knit gifts, I need to get started. I should have already gotten started, to be honest. Last year I believe I was knitting gifts in October. Ideas for quickish projects?
