Okay, it is time to confess something. Part of my silence with my blog entries is because I am in a horrible knitting funk.
There, I said it. Two things I think are at the crux of this funk. 1. I said I would do that craft show in December with friend and so I started knitting dish cloths, scrubbies and pocketbook slippers to sell. Fast and easy projects to “get rich quick” (hahahha, yea, right!). I am so totally sick and tired of knitting for this craft show! It threw me into such a non knitting funk. 2. For my seasonal anxiety issues I go on medication from September thru March. The changes in my “personality” and “psyche” are very non-noticiable on the outside, but I feel the difference! My sleep pattern becomes much more stable, my Restless Leg Syndrome goes away, and I seem to be able to cope better as the days get darker and colder. BUT I do notice that I am a little more BLAH about my knitting and computer “crafting”. Blah. I finally settle in my chair to watch a little mindless tv at night, pick up my needles (on yet another dish cloth) and wait for my knitting lap buddy to show up. When Raina settles, I put my needles down to pet her and smooze her – and I never pick them up the rest of the night. I use to hurry with my night chores so I would have more knitting time – not so now.
So, there you have it. Help! When you get in a knitting funk, what do you do?
