I have knitter’s block this week. I don’t really want to work on the projects I have already started. I can’t seem to get excited about anything new I’ve cast on. I long for that electric feeling you get when you see the pattern or the yarn that you must knit immediately or you might explode!
Next weekend I will want to start working on my Ravelympics project, and I think that is affecting my ability to knit happily right now. I don’t want to start something too big, or it will be neglected later. Something small would be perfect, and I’ve cast on for mitts, a neckwarmer, and a pair of mittens, only to rip them out after a couple of unsatisfying inches.
It was a big relief today to see that the premier issue of the Twist Collective magazine is up. Check it out: you won’t be disappointed. There is another new one coming out on August 4th called Knotions Magazine. The fall issues of my favorite knitting magazines will be soon to follow. There is no shortage of inspiration, so why don’t I feel like knitting? This is shaking my world up a little bit. I suppose it would be okay to take a little break and focus on my other hobbies until this malady passes…what were my other hobbies before I started knitting?! I guess I could read a book. Or clean the house. Nah, I’ll just work on my crochet afghan!
What do you do when Knitter’s Block strikes? Does this happen to anyone else?!
We are headed out to Boston on Sunday, maybe that will help shake things up a bit. Can anyone recommend a fun yarn shop I should visit?
Have a great weekend!
