These are my most recently completed work, but honestly, all I want to do is knit cozy, comfy, winter-friendly items like socks and mittens. I want to spend an entire evening sprawled on the living room floor in the middle of my knitting books and magazines, on the quest for The Perfect Next Project. Just imagining that kind of evening gives me goosebumps. It's like sitting down to make a Christmas list when you were a little kid, starting off with a blank page that's thirty rows long. My fingers are also itching to knit themselves silly. I had my Secret Pal's socks at school with me today, and it was a major effort in self restraint to keep myself from yanking them out and knitting, knitting, knitting through our lecture on printing with mordants for natural dyeing. It must be end of semester burnout, a yearning for more functional crafty activities, a little less art.
