On Being a Lapsed Knitter


On one of my knitting lists, an acquaintance described herself as being a lapsed knitter.  While I will probably never get to that point, it’s a scary thought.

I don’t want to be a lapsed knitter.  I want to be chugging along with several projects on my needles, and a ton more in my to be done queue.

But when my knitting mojo vanishes for over two months, the thought arises that I am heading toward being a lapsed knitter.

Therefore, I am asking for help:  What projects do you use to kick yourself back into gear?  Suggestions for projects on Ravelry are welcome, especially if the patterns are free!

    That’s me, I’m a lapsed knitter. The pressure of all of those half-finished projects is too much. I can barely look at my stash. It’s been over a year since I knitted.

      We should totally get together or an afternoon of knitting and tea, Tavie. My schedule is pretty flexible, so let me know what works for you!

    I adore the wingspan shawl. It’s fairly quick, has a lot of possibilities depending on the yarn you use, and you end up with a piece that is completely different from the last. I’ve knitted four, and none of them look like the last one 😀

      Looked it up and have cast it on. Will post the started project to my Ravelry page when I wake up later.
