From Susan — Up to my **Bee-Boop** in Mud

Filed under: Back Story — lv2knit @ 8:35 pm

I know.  We said we wouldn’t blog much over the summer, but what the heck!  Sally is on an extended road trip and will not be able to write much, so that is one reason for the announced hiatus.  I’ll check in when I can, and we will for sure hit the blog-o-sphere at least weekly (weakly?). 

Check this out:

This is the road to my house .  Now, picture a torrential downpour.  The road was a muddy mess all weekend — you should see our poor cars!  The “high road” to the left is not even really a lane — I have no idea why they built it up like that.  It is supposed to be “in process” until November…bummer!

Re: knitting.  Lorraine mentioned that she is in a bit of a knitting funk.  I can relate.  Is it the summer blahs?  Is it due to the fact that it’s not sweater weather? 

I have been knitting every day but seem to have absolutely nothing to show for it.  Nada!  For me, that is contributing somewhat to my funk.  If I start something new — to feel excited about my knitting again — it will continue the downward spiral of nothing getting finished.  It is a dilemma and one which I have written about before.

On the bright side, the Wrapped in Care Ravelry Group now has almost 60 members.   They have shared some great shawl pattern ideas and one member is ready to mail in two shawls.  I am amazed. 

PS — I realize that not everyone is on Ravelry — but they are the only people I can keep tabs on with regard to the Wrapped in Care Project.  I will track the numbers on our blog (see upper righthand corner).  Thanks to all for supporting this project!


  1. I can sympathise. I am in EXACTLY the same place with my knitting. I need something to get me excited!! In the meantime I’m knitting patterns I’m not really interested in to make stuff I don’t really want. Sigh.

  2. I have a million things I want to make someday. Just not today. Very frustrating.

  3. I have been struggling with my knitting or perhaps I should say lack of knitting. I just can’t get enough motivation up to proceed on any of my WIPs and am trying to resist starting one more.

  4. Susan- It’s the summer knitting funk season. I don’t usually start getting revved up until late August.
    I think I’ll work on some smaller things until inspiration strikes.

    We’re all so hard on ourselves, aren’t we? I hope your road gets done soon.

  5. I hope you keep in mind that not everyone is a member of Ravelry and so we are not all able to join the group. However I have a shawl ready for Wrapped in Care. Thank you for telling us about it on your blog.

  6. I understand. I have had to use detour after detour to get back and forth to work – as does everyone else in Minnesota!
    I’ve been knitting a little dress for a grand niece and have been doing endless stockinette in the round. It’s nearly driving me to drink. I can’t wait until I get to the border. It can’t come soon enough. Then I can start one of the fun projects that’s calling my name.
