This is what starteritis looks like. Last week, I hit a bit of a knitting funk and my mojo seemed like it was taking a summer holiday.

It took me a couple of days but I dug deep.

I went through my Ravelry "Favorites" list. In the past few months, I have been militant/dilligent about going through my library of magazines and books and adding projects to my "Favorites" that I want to knit or crochet. I also went through and tagged each and every item in my "Favorites." This was no small feat. I have over 800 items in my favorites. This has really paid off, though. I can easily search the list and find items that might suit my fancy.

I wanted to do some lace - it is summer and I wanted something light and airy on the needles. Socks are always on the needles but it did really take some time to narrow down my options to a couple of sock patterns. Even still, I don't feel the sock patterns - not really. I am just kind of "meh" about them.

In the photo above, there is evidence of *EIGHT* new projects. Of course I will blog about these new projects over the coming weeks.

But yes, this is what starteritis looks like. My mojo has come back from holiday, ready to work and get things done.
