I think youre right - a break will do wonders with your knitting! I like the colour , I think it would be really nice once its done. Good luck with it! I am in Malaysia now - and its really hot - I havent picked up my knitting yet as I have soo much umpacking to do and just settling down - hope to be back in Melbourne next year- I am already missing everyone there!
lovely colour.. melita is right, take a break and you will find your knitting mojo again :)
