Sad times

Because for some reason that I can't work out, I've completely lost my knitting mojo.  I finished a shawl on 3 Feb, cast on another one on the 8th, and a glove on the 19th.  In total on those two projects, I've probably managed no more than 50 rows.  I can't think what's wrong with me, normally I can't wait to get home from work and pick up my knitting, and the only thing that stops me from working on a project is the sudden, impossible to ignore need to cast on a new one.

At the moment, when I get home (and finish the chores, obviously!) I sit down and play on my iPad or watch telly, and I can't be bothered to pick up the knitting that is RIGHT BESIDE ME!  It's not like I even have to walk across the room to fetch it or anything like that, it's right there and I still won't touch it.  I haven't knitted a stitch in over a month.  And even though it feels wrong and I miss it, I don't have the urge to actually knit, and not even the thought of starting something new perks me up.

What on earth am I going to do?

Well, while I'm not producing anything new, I think I'll try and catch up a bit here by posting some projects "I made earlier" but never got round to posting.  Hopefully that will help make me want to make more!

After that, maybe I need to go and play with yarn and patterns for a bit and try and find some inspiration that way, and just start something new - perhaps a fresh start is what I need, and if I pick something relatively quick and actually finish it, then maybe I'll be able to go back to my WIPs in a better frame of mind.

Fingers crossed!

Sad times indeed love, and so unlike you. Never mind, your visit here is coming closer, and you absolutely MUST bring a project or two with you!
