I've been a little blah about projects lately. You can probably tell. But since I've ordered some yarn blindly, I've decided to try to pair some of the yarn up with things I've marked in my queue. Also, that damn chic cable and lace sweater is going to be frogged. It's too warm, has too many directions, and is just too…eh. I say frog and do something else with the yarn.

So, I think I'm going to try to make the Garnstudio DROPS Jacket, or at least a version of it. Canary Knits has a post on how she made it top-down and in (heavy) worsted weight yarn. Perfect! I'll probably have tons of the Cloud 9 left afterward, but that means another sweater. That's not a bad thing.

I think some of the next projects are going to be the
Texturized Tweed Coat by Stefanie Japel (Ravelry link) and the
Wheat-Ear Cable Yoke by Pam Allen (Ravelry link). I know these are probably more Autumn or Winter sweaters, but I just am not feeling the Spring ones right now. Even though the Spring ones are quick to knit. Hmm…I may have to rethink this plan….

I think I really need to just get back into the groove and get excited about new projects again. The only way that seems to happen is when I am already working on other things. It's the whole "grass is greener" thing. Speaking of green, I got my Palm Cascade 220 yesterday! I might be starting to see the enchantment Bonne Marie has with green.

I have been feeling the same way about my projects. After having to fix Colette, and then having Vienne be practically off the shoulder, I’ve been feeling extremely blah about knitting (except my blanket squares, interestingly.) I was thinking about the same kind of thing – getting inspired by something that I really want to knit, regardless of the season it’s for. I have some ideas – like Vivian, or some other stuff that I’ve wanted to make for awhile. Another idea I had was to go to my yarn closet and pick which yarn I really wanted to work with, then find a pattern for it. Usually I start the other way around, with the pattern first.
