Feeling lost

Well, I finally finished off the evil scarf of fluff. I will post pictures soon hopefully. Weaving in the ends was a nightmare. I really must stop buying 'fashion' yarns. While they look and feel lovely, I hate sewing them up!

This means that I currently don't have a knitting project, and I'm feeling a bit lost. This is ridiculous really, as I have lots of other craft pieces to finish off and keep telling myself to finish a couple before starting something new. I've got M'aiq who needs to be finished, and there's lots of work to be done on the Epic Pokemon cross stitch. There's also an unfinished wizard cross stitch, and a lion cub. So why aren't I finishing any of these off? I think it's because I'm a little fed up of threads and needles and hoops at the moment. I've been working on the DWSAL quite a lot recently, and feel like I'm burnt out on needlework. On the bright side, I've done all 11 doctors, and am just finishing the 12th patch - a tardis. Once I've finished the 12th block, I'll wash (and possibly even iron) the other blocks and post some pictures. Then it's just the *small* task of quilting it (I did buy some quilting fabric the other day, so at least I'm prepared!)

Once again, I've made the post pretty word-heavy. So here's a couple of pictures showing my wizard cross stitch WIP - and hopefully it'll be clear why I put it away and stopped working on it!

The background is supposed to be half stitches... bt stupid, naive me read them as 3/4 stitches. I can't decide whether to give up completely, make them all 3/4 stitches, or unpick all of the background stitches and turn into half stitches. Dilema! It's a shame, because it's quite a nice kit (although the beads are pain to add)

I'll be thinking about my next knitting project over the weekend (while I work on some of the others!) and go through my yarn stash. So many fashion yarns to do soemthing with before I can justify buying more yarn!
