The Case of the Missing Mojo
Seems that my knitting mojo has suddenly and unexpectedly gone on vacation. It's odd how that happens. And, the symptoms and and reasons can vary. There are times when I just don't feel like knitting (this is rare, but it does happen on occasion). Other times it just seems like every project I try won't work. Almost like having all my years of learning and practice fly out the window. Other times, it's a case of pouring over patterns for days and sometimes weeks trying to find one that says, "Pick me! I'm the one!" and not being able to find one that "speaks" to me. Along with that, it can often be that I'm trying to find a pattern to match some yarn in my stash, to do a little stash busting, save some bucks, and feel proud that I made something fabulous with something I already had. This time, I think that almost all of the above have caused my mojo to leave. Except that I really want to knit! I sure hope it comes back soon. Christmas is coming and I don't have much time!
