Help! I've lost my mojo...
Most of us need no excuse what so ever to start a new project. But what if some reason that's not the case?
Recently, I just wasn't feeling it. I had no desire to knit, not even a stitch.
It definitely felt like a small crisis. Knitting for me is a way to be creative, a way to relax, connect with friends. I stopped going to knitting group as I had nothing I wanted to knit. I tried looking online hoping to find a pattern to inspire me.
And then it happened. I found a small project that caught my interest. A cute little cardigan a friend loved and I knew would be worn often. I suddenly had a purpose and inspiration.
I could breathe again. So what would I do next time?
Just do it
Sometimes just spending knitting or crocheting is enough to get you on your way again. You remember why you loved it so much.
Find a new project
If you're not inspired to knit your current project, look for one that does inspire you. A small project can often give you a sense of accomplishment and the confidence to revisit another project.
Develop a routine or habit
Choose a time and develop the habit of picking up your knitting or crochet. It might be something like every time your favourite programme comes on. Even if you just knit a row or two you will definitely see lots of progress.
If all else fails...
Be kind to yourself. This could be a season of enjoying other pursuits and your craft love is hiding just around the corner.
And my cardigan? A good Netflix series and she's already being cast off:-)
