Well...THAT was interesting...

Seems I got bit by a knitting jag Friday afternoon. My knitting mojo has been mostly gone for a while - understood, but still. I guess spending a lot of time the past year in hospital rooms knitting kinda ruined my mojo......but I was still plugging along on a sock. If by "plugging along" you mean knitting 1 needle's worth of stitches (18) every day or so......

Anyway. Friday I was upset with myself, so I decided to go find some BIG, fun yarn and try to knit something mindless. Unfortunately, I am predominately a sock knitter - which means SMALL yarn. I did have 1 ball of Bulky yarn that SG bought me last year (yes, HE bought me a ball of yarn, un-asked for. It's not "my" type - it's 75/25 Poly/Wool - but HE bought it.).....so I went to Ravelry and looked up projects using it. There are...a LOT of projects using bulky wool! Who Knew???

I settled on a nice cowl, CO enough stitches to wrap around 2x, and went at it.

3 hours later, I was DONE. Finished. So I cast on 60 stitches with the leftovers, and......1.5 hours later I had a nice, snuggly cowl.

SG took me to the yarn store in Ft. Worth (we went to pick up Herself).....they were having a 30% off EVERYTHING sale. I, um....fell down. Not hard....but 6 balls of yarn, 4 of which were bulky (2 are worsted for a hat for me). Of the 4, I am on ball #3. Since Saturday afternoon. :blink:

I still don't want to work on the sock, but I think my mojo is coming back. I also think I am slightly addicted to super-quick knits......:lol:

I think I am going to stock up on bulky yarn, and knit it up during the year. That way, I'll have some presents ready to go - and some new warm things for me/mine. Win/Win - just because they are quick doesn't mean that they aren't worthy presents. :lol:

I have the 4 finished cowls drying now; the 5th one needs washing and the 6th one is on the needles now. the last one is for Herself.......I put it off because she chose the most eye-blinding skein she could find. :lol:

Oh! Himself talked me into playing Subnautica......it's pretty, it's neat, and it's TERRIFYING. The killer fish are...well.......scary. He's going to set me up in Creative mode so that I won't be bothered by them - I'm not so much into the story as I am into exploring the pretty, pretty world. He's also playing - I'll get the story from him. :lol:
