I like to mix things up. I'm a gamer in addition to being a knitter (among other things :P) so when I hit a knitting wall I'll go play my favorite MMO for awhile, or lately, Skyrim. It also helps if I change what I'm watching on TV when I knit. Presently I'm watching Battle Star Galatica while I finish up the Christmas stockings I'm working on. Fast pace show for boring knitting Other times I watch Six Feet Under or Larkrise to Candlefort when I'm in a wrap sort of mood. Dying to have that one on DVD, but it's kinda pricy for a PBS show and only reason hubby bought me BSG a couple years ago was he likes it too ... anywho, hitting a knitting wall isn't uncommon by far as other posts show. Just take a break and come back as others have said too. Hope it goes well

I've been putting in a lot of hours at work because of Christmas. I just don't have the time to knit as much as I'd like lately. I was stressing out trying to get these hats done for Christmas when it suddenly occurred to me: Why am I beating myself up over this? I temporarily set them aside. They'll get done after Christmas but that's okay. In my pjs in the warm comfort of my own home, I went online to Amazon and ordered movie dvd's for the kids. I don't have to fight the crowds and long waiting lines, look for a parking spot, don't have to wrap presents and wait at the post office, and they ship it for me.

I did three big knitting/crochet projects for Christmas presents, and I just finished the last. It was definitely a marathon! I find that I work better when I have something else to focus on. I think I worked through four seasons of Top Gear, four of Doctor Who, and two seasons of my favorite radio drama! Give it a try; after a while I found that I wanted to keep working just so I had reason to keep watching!
