Knitting MoJo - I want it back!

I was reading Sonya's blog about how she got her knitting mojo back. She got it back in a big way. Her Kauni Cardigan is gorgeous and she is zipping right along.

I was thinking about how to get my knitting mojo back and decided to knit a pair of Jaywalker Socks by Grumperina. I think I am the only one on the planet who has not knit a pair. I finished the first sock today.
I'm using Fortissima Colori-Socka yarn. I'm not a big fan of this yarn but I have lots of it in my stash.

Next, I could pick up one of my many WIP but instead I've decided to start a lace project. I've never knit a shawl but have always wanted to so I plan to start Leda's Dream by Pink Lemon Twist of Mystery Stole fame. Actually Leda's Dream was the first Mystery Stole, Scheherazade was last years MS2 and this year it's ??? . Thanks Vanessa for suggesting this pattern.

I plan to knit Leda's Dream with Jade Sapphire's Cashmere-Silk (45% Mongolian Cashmere/55% Silk) in colorway #7 (Flannel Suit).

Jaywalkers are a perfect mojo-getting-back project. I've never used Fortissima, but I like those blues. I think Melanie's shawl patterns are just amazing. I'm looking forward to seeing your Leda's Dream!

Your Jaywalker looks great. What pretty colours in that yarn. Hope your knitting mojo is back now.

I like your Jaywalkers a lot. Actually, I've never knit them, having not been too fond of most I've seen. Yours give me hope that I can find something in my stash that I'll like with the pattern. I know I have some similar type yarns. So a huge thanks for knitting that pattern with that yarn!

Can't wait to see your shawl. I find that a new project will often rekindle the mojo better than digging into the UFO pile. Now I'm going to go look at those patterns in your links.
