Wanted: lost mojo

May 13, 2014

So the sad fact is there has been hardly any knitting going on here at the home of your local Introverted Knitter. Well technically that isn’t true, the knitting that has happened hasn’t actually happened at my place. My favorite knitting group got together about a week ago and I managed to crank out a few rows on the bachtus shawl (which is still missing photos.) I don’t know if it is because I am feeling so burnt out after work or if it is because all of my knitting seems like crap right now, but for some reason I just have no real desire to pick up the needles.

I have experienced a lack of interest in knitting before, so I know it will pass. Perhaps I just need to cast on something knew, maybe stash diving is in order? Do you have any ideas of unbelievable patterns that I should just knit? Any thing you do special when you feel like you loss your mojo?

  1. I go to the yarn store or ravelry or both. I pick out something new and I get going. The Mojo finds me then. 🙂 It will be back 🙂

  2. I’ve had a pair of gloves on my dpns for WAY TOO LONG, sometimes the knit mojo does disappear but it always returns. 😉

  3. Reblogged this on handmadehomemadeknitstitchdesign and commented:
    So been there too! Thank goodness we know our mojo for knitting WILL return. I read a couple of books instead recently, really enjoyed complete escapism. Your first/next problem will be just what to make first. Good luck!

  4. I like to have a really mindless, semi-instant gratification project on hand when the mojo cools, but if I’m still not even feeling that, I just let it be. I find something else to fill my time and don’t worry about it. Knitting shouldn’t be another source of stress.

  5. When I lose my knitting mojo, I spin! That way when the mojo comes back, I have new pretties to motivate me to knit.

    I look for a new small project that will require a new skein of yarn—a yarn I have never worked with before. Socks are an obvious small project, but don’t bypass knitted accessories like necklaces and bracelets.
