I found some interesting dishcloth patterns at

And there's a lot of neat dishcloths here:

Something I do when I have several projects going at once and am not thrilled by any of them is work on them all just a little each day (or each time I knit). For example, I had a scarf (for me!), a dishcloth (part of a friend's gift) and a wrap all going. I would do at least one repeat (8 rows) on the scarf, 5-10 rows on the dishcloth and a couple on the wrap. That way I was working on everything but keep switching around so I didn't feel like I was having to work on one thing all the time. Just a thought!

Make a toy! I just knit a alien and it only took me like 2 hours total. When your done you feel inspired to work on bigger stuff.

I think a trip to the LYS is in order! It never hurts to have a gorgeous new yarn to work with - and make something for YOU!! As much as I love to knit for other people, I have to make something for myself every once in awhile.

The other suggestion of taking a break is a good one too. Try doing something else for awhile. You might just be a little burnt out and need a break.

Good luck!

I found that listening to the Yarn Harlot audio book kept me amused and engaged and I got a huge amount done on a sweater mainly done in stockinette with some shaping for darts.
Getting up and doing a little housework can send me right back to my knitting as well.

This is why no one will ever see me making a really big project. I'm too stinkin' ADD about knitting; I get bored w/what I'm making and want to do something else I've seen. That is so BAD of me, too!!! All these answers have been very interesting, though, and might just help me out, too.

Me too!
I do try to keep my WIPS to three but if I am really bored or frustrated with what I am doing, I will pick up something new usually something small and often charity oriented. Breaks the boredom up a little.

I got an iPod Shuffle for Christmas. I put lots of my favourite songs on it. When I am bored with knitting the same thing over and over or a really big project (like the shawl I am working on now) I put my iPod on and it makes it easier to knit. I bee bop in my chair while I knit! Sounds silly but it works for me!

As with many of the others here - I go to my stash or to the yarn store and start a small, fun, project. Remember, WE are the only ones we are doing this for - we are supposed to enjoy the process!!
Good luck!
