Mojo returns quickly after whining…

So… A few weeks ago (this post) I was lamenting the fact that my knitting wasn’t going very well. I believe I overused the word ‘horrible’. That was July 18.

Here we are, in the 2nd week of August. Let’s look at my progress.

from the top
from the back
pooling!
Knit Night Hat [rav link]
CO: July 17, 2011 <—– !!!!! 😯
BO: July 22, 2011
Yarn: Malabrigo Worsted in Emerald Blue
Notes: Wonderful simple pattern. The pooling wasn’t intentional but I find it charming. I will be knitting mittens to match this hat.

If I recall correctly I had completely finished the brim of that hat on the 17th. My mojo was peeking through the fail!

The next clue my mojo was returning was the completion of:

arm warmers
Arm Warmers [rav link]
CO: June 18, 2011
BO: July 23, 2011
Yarn: Lorna’s Laces Sock in Humboldt
Notes: I think I need to add a little elastic at the top otherwise they fit wonderfully and are very warm.

Aha! Finishing a work project always improves moral on the knit ship… lollipop. I have no idea where that metaphor was going.

Anyway by now you are probably convinced that the mojo was back, but was it in fact too strong?

fallberry mitts complete!

Then thereΒ are the works in progress:
