Sometimes you just need a quick fix.

Know what I mean? Days when you look around at your stash, at magazines, at your works-in-progress, and all you see is the same project, stretching from here to eternity, blah blah blah. The only antidote is the rush of a quickly-finished item. Baby hats whipped out in a day, socks that fly off the needles, a one-skein wonder…

Sometimes we all need our FO fix to keep us motivated and happy. This spring is an especially good time to give into the urge: Roza’s Socks, Acorn Hats, Monica, not to mention all of the old favorites!

So join me in making April the month of the quick knitting fix. I’ve set up a knit-a-long blog and a flickr group to share experiences and photos. And if you don’t have anything in your stash that tempts your tummy, consider asking Ellen to hook you up–she has some really unique and beautiful yarns, including the yarns I’m trying to decide between:

(That’s JuJuKnits, CTH, and J. Knits sock yarn.)

Leave a comment here or at the knit-a-long blog to join, and spread the word!

  2. Hmm, this sounds like a good idea to me. Sign me up!
