Back in the Groove!

Sometimes, all it takes to get back into knitting is to start a new, quick, and interesting project.  I learned this while working on the latest project, Zuzu's Petals.

I've been having a really hard time being excited about knitting.  I think this is because I haven't been knitting very interesting project.  My Owl Sweater, Owl Toy, and hexipuffs are all knit in the same old stockinette stitch, and I must say that stockinette is possibly the most boring stitch to knit.  Knitting straight stockinette projects has made feel less pumped about knitting and I've been procrastinating a ton.  So, to motivate myself, I started a brand new and fresh project to keep me interested.

I am loving this project so far!  It's a cowl, but looks like a shawlette.  There are a handfuls of yarn-overs here and there in the pattern, so it keeps me interested.  I'm about half way done with it, and I am going to wear it to school tomorrow or one Tuesday. :)

This pattern is surprisingly very easy to understand.  I didn't have to look up tutorials on YouTube on how to knit certain stitches and most of the techniques used in the project are ones I already know.  Even though it's an easy knit for me, I am really enjoying it and I highly recommend it!

The yarn knits up nicely, and I love watching the subtle color changes form.  The light blue flecks in the fabric look so awesome.

I will be posting again once I finish my shawlette cowl!
