WIP Wednesday : Slow Return of the Creative Mojo
After a couple of months of feeling too sick to create anything, my mojo is back *knock on wood* (I don't want to curse it). I am starting small so I do not overwhelm myself. I have a few big projects I started before the morning sickness hit but I am not going to pick those back up until I know for sure I am fully back.
I started out by finishing a small project K needs for school in just a few weeks - her felted mittens to match her gnomie hat. I only had to knit and attach the cuffs so it was quick and simple. I couldn't justify buying yarn to match the rainbow colorway perfectly, so I used some leftover red yarn from K's Little Red Riding Hood cape, instead. Now I just need to lanolize them to make them really waterproof and they are set to go.

Speaking of school projects, I have a few sewing ones I really need to start but am still avoiding - place mats, napkins, cloth bag to hold her extra clothes... I feel like there is more that I am forgetting. To help my sewing procrastination *ahem* I thought I would knit up some legwarmers for K to keep at school. K was gifted with a couple of dresses and tights so I thought legwarmers would help keep her warm when she's outside playing. I am going to use up the rest of my beloved Georgia Peach yarn leftover from her neighborly.
So, not a whole lot going on but I think I can say I am slowly but surely coming back around. I hope the nesting hits soon so I can really get back to work!
What are you working on? I would love some beautiful inspiration.
