I Think I Got My Knitting Mojo Back..

...Alert the Press. LoL.  I have not felt much like crocheting or knitting anything, for a long time. I don't know why. I just fizzled out.  I don't know how or why it came back, but...  I got in the mood to knit.  I recently joined a group on Ravelry called EEROP. (Eastern Europe Russian Orphanage Project? Something like that..)  I wanted to knit a sweater to send. And, it happened to be time for the Ravellinics. So I joined that, too. (Sheesh I wonder why I lost my mojo?...   I get too much going maybe?)  Anyway I am knitting a simple pattern (since it's been a while), the Knit for Kids Classic T-Top Sweater.  I forgot how to cast on at the beginning of a row, and had to look that up to cast on for the sleeves. But now I am only about a half inch away from being done with side one.  :)   I cast on for a size four because this is all the yarn I have left of my big bag of Wool Ease. I bought a bunch of it, like 20 years ago. I think this sweater will use up the last of it. Anyway, with my gauge being right on, it still is measuring out for the size 6 sweater. Go figure...  I just hope I have enough yarn.

"Play with me, Mumma"...   :P  She has one ball in her mouth, and one on the floor...   LoL

Glad you did, Tina ;) I also haven't done anything lately except a CAL bag. I'm still waiting for the handles I ordered on Etsy so I can finally use the bag.
I see that's the same wool ease yarn you've sent me before. I made a small sling bag from it. And I recall I have swapped two of those, sorry...hope I still have some I could send you, if you run out of yarn for the sweater.
