Stress

After knitting and crocheting like mad for the first few months of the year, I seem to have hit a slump. The only project I've got going is the Rick Rack scarf I mentioned a couple weeks ago. Next on my queue are the Easy Handspun Mitts and I've got everything I need to get started, except the knowledge of how to knit on DPNs. I'm sure I'll get the hang of it, but I haven't had a moment lately where I felt like I had the time and mental energy to cast on something I wasn't sure how to do. Planning for a move is not the right time for learning new knitting techniques. My crochet queue is less intimidating, but mostly features amigurumi with tons of little pieces to sew together. Wahh.

I've been keeping busy, though, investigating yarn stores and knitting/crochet groups in my future home, as well as bookmarking a few places I might check out when I spend some time in the San Francisco area next month. Plus, I have a gift certificate at my LYS to spend before I move away, so there are fun possibilities there too. Lots and lots of planning these days, and very little doing.
