I have been obsessing so much about whether February Lady would fit across my shoulders that I totally missed the fact that square necklines do not look good on me. I know, I know! The neckline is the first thing you knit in a top down sweater. And now that enough of it is done to try on, it feels really bulky. I want to rip the whole thing, frog back to stitch one. I'm letting the sweater simmer in the time-out chair, but I fear it is done for.

And then there are the Hedgerow socks. There is nothing wrong with this pattern; it is just me. For some reason, I just can't stick with reknitting the feet. Instead, I want to rip the whole pair, frog back to stitch one. This project is also in the time-out chair.

In an effort to rejuvenate my knitting mojo, I started something new, using the "Poodle Skirt" yarn I bought from Qutecowgirl's Etsy store. First, I tried the yarn on Dublin Bay socks. Then I tried it with Crosswalker socks. So now I have started two socks with two different patterns, and I'm not liking either so far.

Maybe I am the one who needs a time-out.

Sounds pretty frustrating!
