What’s next?

It’s the after-Christmas knitting let-down.  Not that I really had a lot of knitting I was working on for Christmas, per se, but I did have a couple holiday-related projects (and some work projects) that I finished around Christmas.

Now I’ve got to figure out what to do with myself again!

I could go back to my Papaya Sweater.  I swear, some day I’ll finish it.  I just… need more… enthusiasm.   Or, alternatively, I just need to get off my butt and just knit the dang thing.  (It sits in a big bowl next to my desk and looks at me every time I sit down to work on the blog or send email.  It judges me.)I could start something new… I did receive three skeins of a really lovely merino/bamboo blend in a fantastic, subtle shade of blue.  I just have to figure out what to do with almost 1500 yards of fingering weight yarn.  (Maybe a bunch of socks?  Or maybe a light, spring cardigan?)Or… I don’t know… I could do something non-knitting-related?  Heresy, I know!  But even I like to branch out once in a while.  I’ve dabbled in paper-crafting, cross stitch, embroidery, clothing-making, even bookmaking (like, making books with paper, not taking illegal bets. I’m not a bookie. In non-related news, I’ve been watching a lot of cop shows and reading true crime books over the holidays.  Maybe I need to start watching something else, if that’s where my brain goes).  Maybe I need to find a new project entirely?

Or I could just take a nap with the dog.What are you working on, now that the craziness of the holidays are over?

    January is the worst part of the year for me usually, so this year I’m staying busy with Cottage Notebook’s writing challenge, and #spin15aday and #wemakeyarn on Instagram. I’m also working on socks and am getting ready to start a sweater. I’ve also been watching and reading a lot of true crime stuff – Mind Hunter on Netflix got me started.

    Oh thank God I’m not the only one feeling a bit bereft after finishing the gifted knits!
    I, like you, wandered a bit, looked at patterns, sorted my stash, donated skeins I’d never use . . .
    Finally joined a log cabin knit along and I have to say it’s given me a starting point. It’s using my stash, and it’s pretty mindless but fun figuring out which color to use next. It’s letting my brain chew on what to start next and I like that.
