We're away at Woolfest this weekend and will resume sending orders on Tuesday. Can't see your favourite item? We will be reloading the rest of our goodies after the weekend.

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:-)

Happy knitting.
