I'm feeling stymied with my knit projects. I have a fair number of WIPs, but each has something holding it back.

My Veronique is waiting on more yarn, since I ran out.

My Wisp revision is nearly finished but so tedious at this point because of the repetition of a complicated lace pattern.

My sweater-coat design is sucking ass honestly but might look okay on someone less post-partum--so I don't want to work on that either.

The mohair cardi design has turned into a frankenstein of weird freestyle knitting to the point that I don't think I could every write a pattern that anyone else could decipher. I should put it out of its misery--but that's exactly how I felt about Nella, and I'm so glad I didn't quit on her.

Doucement, the hat design, started out with a very wrong yarn choice so I'm reknitting it now, but again, bored with knitting the same thing twice.

And I don't want to work on my husband's new Gamekeeper because it's one thousand degrees outside.

My knititng is starting to feel like Outward Bound--something to be slogged through with the promise that I'll feel glad that I did. Ugh.

I feel your pain, I'm in the same place as you. I don't feel like working on any of my projects right now. I hardly even feel like thinking about knitting. What the hell happened? Where's my knitting mojo?

Since I just finished the afghan, I know exactly how you feel. I thought that sucker would never get done. I was so bored with it. will feel so much better when you finish one of the projects that it will reignite your mojo.

Although, it is 1000 degrees outside and I can't stand touching yarn either. BTW I have nice mohair that I think would be good for that shawl.
