I’ve been in sort of a knitting conundrum, I suppose, for the past week or so. I’m still finding my way as a knitter, but it seems I need a larger project going and a few quick and simple small projects to rotate to. My lori shawl is almost done, literally just a few rows from being complete, and I ran out of yarn, so now I must order one more skein + wait for it to arrive before finishing. I have a handful of smaller projects that I wanted to begin, but am trying to find a pattern for some yarn that I have. I have made a bad habit of buying one skein here, one skein there, and then never having enough yarn for a larger project that I’m eyeing. So I’m in the process of deciding on patterns, and I can’t seem to go quickly through that process. I get a bit discouraged with how expensive it can be to knit what I really want with the yarn I really like. I am going to work on a few more dishcloths in the meantime, because I literally have to have something I can quickly grab and work on in the spare moments I find during the day, while I wait for a bigger project to settle into.
I’m in the same sort of place with books. I’m just trying to finish up a few that I’ve been stuck in for a bit. Meanwhile, a friend gave me Gluten-Free on a Shoestring so I’m browsing through that a bit. I’m always on the lookout for tips and tricks to do this whole gluten-free diet more economically.
