Not Pushing Seems to Have Been the Right Thing To Do


Sunday Morning Shawl – In Progress (©2012 Deborah J. Wunder)

My knitting mojo seems to slowly be returning. I’m still struggling through the feet of the Colbert socks, but after successfully completing the Wingspan shawlette that Adalisa suggested I try, I decided I wanted a shawl that used up a lot of the odds and ends from the socks I had made over the last few years. So, I started one of my favorite shawls, Martina Kastanek’s Sunday Morning Shawl, which is a free Ravelry download.

This time, I am sort of considering making it a huge diamond, instead of a huge triangle, however.  I got to thinking about the Kerry Blue Square Shawl, by Martha Waterman, of which I have made three, two of which I have used as blankets during rough winters. (The one pictured is the first one I made — around 1992.  I made a second one, in garnet, somewhere around 2003, for Dee to use as a blanket.)  It’s a mother to make — it’s made in the round, so to speak, and the errata sheet for the pattern is about 2/3 of a page, because the biggest error is in the set up row for the third section, when you have about 303 stitches on the needle.  But I love the idea of another big, cuddly blanket shawl, so I’m seriously thinking of how to turn the triangular Sunday Morning  Shawl into a diamond.

So I am happy to say that it seems like, because I didn’t push or force it, my mojo is finding its way home — just in time for winter knitting, too!

      Thanks, Kellee! This was a relatively short hiatus, as these things go, for which I am very grateful.
