Bread Crumb Trail

Have you ever been lost in the “in-between”, or as I call it “Yarn Purgatory”? It is the state of mind that come after finishing your current PHD; in which your mind goes completely blank as to what to hook next? (Usually this happens only if you are a Monogamist hooker * later post will describe this in detail*)

While lost in this Purgatory it is in-advisable to watch your normal yarn based pod-casts (especially if you are one to craft during said pod-casts). Doing this causes extreme yarn envy and/or a slight depression upon seeing the pod-caster’s projects and yarn. It is also in advisable to stay up late that night and search for projects and where to order the yarn from. (please note the date and time this blog posted at 2:10am *I am ashamed*)

Other notes about Purgatory; you NEVER have the right yarn, in the right amount on hand for ANY project you wish to start. it is just a fact we have to deal with, it will be okay though. In this situation continue your project search with the specification of your stash yarn (Ravelry has this option under their projects search engine). This will help you get through the evening without buying a sweater’s worth of beautiful hunter green DK weight yarn for that new beginner’s sweater pattern you saw on KnitPicks.com, or having it sent to you express shipping for the extra $10 *I am ashamed*.

When in Doubt turn off the computer turn on the radio and whip up some washcloths.

Unless you want nice and fancy washcloths then it would not be a good idea to spends hours on Google searching for that “one absolutely perfect washcloth pattern”.

Good luck, if you find a way out… Leave a trail of yarn behind.

P.S. I’ll post picture of this amazing yarn as soon as it gets here!

    Nice blog post. It all sounds a little “Alice in (Yarn)Wonderlad”-ish. 😀 Good advice . . . “When in Doubt turn off the computer turn on the radio and whip up some washcloths.” {Except, I listen to Pandora Radio, on the computer.}
    Luckily I am not a Monogamist hooker. My problem is completely in the other direction, which causes it’s own set of anxieties!
    Happy Hooking!
