In January I was in the Adoration chapel when I wrote down this dazzling insight: "Knitting is supposed to be a fun and relaxing hobby." It had started to feel like a chore, with inflexible deadlines. Christmas knitting will do that to a person, I guess. Or at least to this person.
It's funny, though: my knitting mojo has completely evaporated. That Ysolda mystery knit-along? Haven't finished either project. The sweater I was going to wrap up before sweater season ended? Untouched for weeks. The dragon mittens I thought I might whip out before mitten season ended? I'm just past the cuff on the first one.
Oh, dear, sad girl upstairs. Have you ever had your knitting mojo disappear? What prompted its return?
