Turning over a new leaf

I’m going to try something new, starting now.

I’m going to knit what I want, when I want. Goodbye project monogamy! I thought you could make me happy, but you are seriously disappointing my knitting dreams.

It is a bit of an obstacle of the mind, to not be working on just one project at a time. But some recent large projects have made me realise, I need to branch out a little. I want to knit everything now. If I wait too long to knit what I want to knit now, inevitably I am not all that excited about what I’m knitting at any time, because I’ve thought about it for too long! Does that make sense? What is the point of it all, if knitting doesn’t make me happy?!

Here’s the beginnings of project 2, a pair of stripy socks. The yarn is my very first shipment of Vesper sock club. I wasn’t too crazy about this colour way, but decided that knitting the cuff, heel and toes in some leftover wollmeise mint would make this pair of socks look super snappy. I’ve loved every colour way since, so I’m sure I’ll grow to love these too.

What will I cast on next?!
