My Mojo Has Left the Building!

First some updates...

Due to some diligence on our part, the compost heap has reached as high as a steaming 112 degrees. It actually gives off heat...I am so excited!

With a few exceptions the tomato plants are showing blooms left and right. I try not to pay too much attention to them...don't wanna count my 'maters before they hatch.

I am also in the process of completing the fourth and final quilt of the season. A post on that later.

Lastly, if you don't already read do so, I highly recommend reading The Panopticon. It is a newly added blog highlight o' my day.
If anyone has seen my sock mojo running around please tell it to stop in its tracks and insist that it return to me. I came out of the gate strong for Summer of Socks starting two pair on the first Sunday. As these photos show, I am just passed the cuff on the Pomatomous and 1.5 inches past the cuff on the Wendy Knits SOS pattern....very sad...

What's worse...I have no motivation to work on them. In the last weekend, I took a round-trip flight, I sat and watched two hours of tennis and vegged all of Sunday and never once did I pick up my knitting doesn't look good. ~ksp

OMG! YOu need your mojo. Was it Pomatomus that harshed your mojo? I fear that sock even more now. Love the pink & brown quilt, BTW.
Don't fret over your mojo, just let it go and it will come back to you.

I hope your mojo comes back. I think it was those people who made 2 inch cuffs that got you all upset. Don't worry about them. Seize the opportunity to make something beautiful for yourself.

How about you start knittin something chunky? When it gets too big and hot, you will want something small that you can carry around. No worries. Your mojo will come back. Hmmm... maybe if I hurry up and finish my Nutkins, you will see it on my post and get inspired. I know how you love to blogstalk. hehe!!!

I am SO with you. I have a blog post with similar socks in disarray. I call it fss (first sock syndrome)

My knit night Queen said if you don't love it, frog it. I did that and what a relief!
