How Chasity got her groove back

Happy Monday everyone! Hope you all had a fab weekend. I spent the weekend attempting to find my knitting mojo. I *think* I may have found it or at least some version of it. I talked about losing it in my last post. I know that there will be lulls in knitting but I have orders(that have been paid for) that need to be filled, so now is not the Time.

I did decide to take a break and try my hand at a couple other ventures. I was hoping that this would give me the break I obviously needed and still get me back in the swing. A power nap for knitting if you will.
So up first, I made stitch markers.

This was actually a fun craft. I did have to employ my husbands help to crimp the beads but other than that it was all my craft.

Next up, I spent my weekend trying and executing a few new recipes. No pics or really anything to say on that, so let’s move on haha.

I did accomplish a little knitting. I made a baby cocoon. These things are apparently all the rage with the new hip mommies wanting super cute newborn pictures. I had seen them used in newborn pic but had never attempted to make one. It’s a big hat! That’s all. Just a giant hat you stuff your baby in. Super quick and it set my knitting groove back in gear.

I have decide that I will be taking my time. No more rushing from one project to the next. I am now working in a baby infinity scarf.(I had no idea they were a thing either) Hopefully I will have this finished quickly and mailed out soon.

Last up for the day…I joined a knitting Photo-a-day contest with Knitters Pride. Hop over to Instagram and check it out!
