Well, in an attempt to lure myself out of the knitting funk, I started a small baby sweater for a baby that’s due in less than a month. It’s going quickly but eh, I’m not really into it. Here’s a progress pic:
The pattern is from Debbie Bliss Baby Knits and I used Knit Picks shine. It is a little old man sweater:

Also, I received a couple of balls of Colinette Prism as a gift but I’m really struggling with a purpose for them. I never knit with hand-dyed yarn and I’m not really fond of it. Still, it is gorgeous yarn. I started a garter stitch scarf but I’m not sold on it. Any ideas? Here is what the yarn looks like. I have two balls (about 240 yds) and it calls for size 10.5 needles.

Happy knitting!

    The baby sweater is darling – love the blue, and the KNitPicks Shine should be perfect!

    I like little old man sweaters for babies. :)

    Hmm, if you don’t have an immediate purpose for the Prism, I’d put it aside and keep an eye out for a purpose. And baby sweaters have never gotten me out of a knitting funk – there’s just something about it, wanting to knit the sweater but feeling vaguely obligated – it’s not particularly inspiring.

    Going through my stash of yarn and books and patterns and magazines tends to be more inspiring. It gets me thinking about what I have on hand and what it could become.

    Browsing through knitting blogs and seeing the amazing veriety of what people are making also helps me.

    Good luck!
