I don't think there's much more stressful to me than feeling out of sorts with my knitting. Right now, that's where I am.
I'm still suffering anxiety attacks over the knee sock for my niece. I suspect the pattern I've been following isn't all that great, and that the socks will be too tiny. I finally got around to doing a little math, and was shocked to see that with the gauge I have (8.5 stitches per inch) it will be waaaay too small/tight to fit around my niece's (or anyone else over the age of ten's) calf. Gulp!
Liat's Shetland Shorty seems to be about the right length when placed on her back, but according to the pattern it's still too short. Also according to another little bolero top she has and loves. Need to double check. Been putting it off.
I started another little baby top in pink and purple, and it's awfully cute. Liat has already claimed it (since it's a just-in-case baby item, it may well sit in a drawer until needed...). But, I just don't feel like working on it.
My Coronet hat is wonderful, but I don't feel like working on that, either.
This kind of thing happens every once in awhile. Part of me wants to "cure" the problem by casting on for something new, but nothing is really calling to me. I know what I should do is double check the top for Liat, double check the sock measurements, and get back to work on what's already on the needles. Meanwhile, I have been doing some genealogy research and playing a lot of Text Twist on Yahoo! Games.
