Lost...

... my knitting mojo! Have you seen it? I really need to get it back and get those needles clicking on a regular basis.

My last FO was a rather uneventful, but quick-knit item for Chan's little friend Hope. It got Zeus' approval before heading off... hopefully it brings some comfort to Hope.

My Colonnade should be finished, but about half way through the lace section, I realized I had been forgetting to knit the 2 stitches at the end of the purl rows. After unsuccessfully trying to tink back those 2 stitches (note: end stitches do not tink well), I wound up ripping the entire lace section out. Here's where I'm at now...

Colonnade

The holiday shopping days are zooming by way too fast, but at least I know I'll have one gift done this year... the Chunky Ribs & Ruffles is almost finished. I think I'm going to end it with just one skein... I had considered doing two, but think it would be too long for such a thin scarf.

My Trekking to Charlotte socks are nearly complete... are you amazed? These poor things have been repeatedly tossed aside so many times... it'll be nice to finally get them on my feet!

As you can clearly see (especially if you Ravel-stalk me), I should be finishing stuff off, right? I have absolutely no right to cast on anything new, right? Especially if its something for me... right?

Wrong.

NaluMitts

Although hardly anything to see at the moment, that is the start of my Nalu Mitts.

So... back to my knitting mojo? I think its coming back... hope...

That's a lot of items to finish. I hate it when the "get up and go" just gets up and leaves. I think Hope will love her purple hat. I've seen a couple of other colonnade shawls, and I don't think the others were that excited about them, either. Your colors are certainly bold!

I totally missed your telling about 4 footed gifts. I guess I was drooling over your list with lacy shawls and whatnot! I almost wish I remembered my knitting basics....hah! My hubby would go bonkers if I started making and not finishing more projects!

If you find yours, maybe mine is with it? :)

I'll be looking for mojo at the beach later. I think mine lives there... (Anita's must live on MY beach, rather than her own?)

Love your inspector there. I'm guessing he's the reason Sis felt the need to inspect it from here too?

I have more knitting mojo than there are hours in the day. I'll send you some of mine. I really, really, really need to retire so I can knit 24/7. Too bad retirement is about 25 years away, not to mention the fact that I'll never be able to afford to retire...

I love the colors in those socks!

That colonnade is going to be a knock out when you finish it.

If you figure out how to find it and make it stay around, let me know. As soon as I cast on, all my interest seems to fade away.
