As I mentioned the other day I was going to cast on the Dream Stripes shawl. The other projects that I’m knitting aren’t doing it for me. I don’t want to lose my mojo and that is likely if I force myself to knit something I’m not in the mood for.
So I cast on the shawl and it was less than satisfying. Maybe even frustrating. I ripped it out and cast on again using a few of the helpful hints on Ravelry. That too looked uneven. I like neat and tidy.
So I read more helpful hints. There are over 2000 projects on Ravelry so there are plenty of hints. After reading most of them I found the ones that would work for me and now I have the start of a happy striped shawl. The best part is the plain part of the pattern is simple enough that I can knit it without looking at the pattern. Hopefully this will keep the mojo going long enough for that loose ends feeling to pass and the need for a finished object feeling to kick in.
Thank you for all your suggestions yesterday on the cake winding issues. I’ll try them next time.
