I’m struggling! The sock knitting was fun and fast paced. My Camp Loopy project is not. The colors aren’t has I envisioned them and they just don’t excite me.
I got so tired of stripes, especially on the sleeves where I kept getting tangled up . . forgetting to go left and then go right and the yarn was getting messy. I gave up on the stripes and decided to finish the rest of the sleeve in solid. Camp Loopy rules don’t say I have to follow the pattern exactly!
Honestly, I’ve lost interest. I think there’s too much going on around here. I need something I can make that requires no thought . . although this sweater is quite simple. Maybe I need something more portable . . like plain jane socks. Maybe I just need to hibernate til summer is over.
There’s pretty much no chance I’m going to get the August project done. We have company coming August 1, which means I should be cleaning . . every minute of every day til they arrive. I have one trip for sure and maybe another trip to MO in August. Even though the project I had planned to do, Emiliana, isn’t hard, I think it requires more thought and time than I’m going to have to offer during August.
I think I’m going to put Camp Loopy aside, accept that I was a bad camper this summer, get my house ready for company, and figure out what to do next. One day at a time . . that’s the advice I need right now.
The sweater and the yarn are now packed away in my Camp Loopy bag and hung on my “projects” wall. The sweater is a size 6 so it will fit Addie for several more winters . . just not this winter!
