Every year after Christmas, I get into a knitting funk where I'm just not motivated to start anything new or pick up any WIPs. Does anyone else have this problem? My guess is that it's burn-out after the rush to get Christmas gifts finished on time. And this year is no different. I have one sock finished, one Fetching fingerless mitt finished, and one Little Gems Mitt finished—all of which need a pair. But I don't want to do them. I'm at a knitting loss. So I've been trying to decide on a new, challenging project to pique my interest and get me motivated. And here's what I've come up with:
It was also quite fun explaining to my brother that "baby alpaca" does not literally mean that the yarn comes from *baby* alpacas.
Here's my brother modeling his Christmas cap from last year—this is an equal opportunity blog. Everyone gets their picture on here at some point or another; those are my mom's hands modeling the Little Gems Mitts in the last post. (We just got around to taking the FO picture of the cap this Christmas!)
Now I'm off to go cast on the cape!
