When I've lost the bug to pick up the hook or needles I browse through my magazines and pattern books. Something usually strikes me after a while. Come to think of it, I usually buy yarn too.

If I'm just not in the knitting mood I tend to go back to one of my other hobbies... crochet, sewing, cross-stitch, reading or computer games. After a few days, I usually get bit by the knitting bug again. Sometimes you just need a break.

Make a quilt... or just knit anyway... nothing, anything.
I had some thick green yarn so I made it into a Pea Pod Cozy of my own design... sort of... something a person cannot go wrong with just for the sake of having something to knit.

I've had the same problem lately! I was thinking today I should start some new dishcloths~easy, mindless, and best of all, QUICK! lol~plus I love the bright colors I can use.

If I don't even feel like that, then I just do something else for awhile~sew, garden (I've planted eight trees this past 3 weeks!!) or *read*. I was even thinking of starting sewing a quilt I've had cut out for over ten years (yikes!) but never sewed together. I also started sewing a set of PJ's for my DD~which are done except for the buttonholes and adjusting the length.

What other hobbies do you have? Do you have a project you started long ago that you can finish just for the sake of finishing, knitting or otherwise?

hope you can find something fun to do. I really can sympathize! I need to finish the shawl I started for my DM (3/4's done) for last Christmas

Thank you all for your comments.

I agree with both parts of that statements! Beautiful Temari.

I really appreciate all your comments and suggestions (well maybe with the exceptions of sewing and quilting LOL)



It is springtime (warm yesterday, cooler today but warmer again the next few days)! It might even be warm enough tomorrow to get out the old water rocket launch pad and tinker with a two bottle rocket or even a two stage water rocket.

And my son has the Spring Cub-0-ree comming up; his Scout pack is building a table top catapult. I've got a couple design drawings I can plot out and send to the leader.

Hey, I might even think of some knitting or crochet ideas for use in camping. An equipment net-bag, sundry-item tote (I hope the camp site has hot showers!)

Okay, best not to over do it. Thanks again!

Oh my gosh Maureen, that embroidery is AWESOME! I had never heard of that before.

Sometimes I don't knit for a little while and do something else instead. I have done this with other hobbies too, but I always come back to it.

In the summer, I work on cotton hats for chemo patients, or dishcloths for Christmas presents.

I'm like Crycket, I play World of Warcraft or the Sims 2. Though I also play them while I'm in knitting mode, so they just might help keep me from getting "burned out" on knitting in the first place. I also read, as there isn't anything like getting immersed in a good book!

If I'm just feeling uninspired, I will looking through the recently added patterns on Ravelry, FO threads in the groups I'm in there or just cruise patterns period.

For my summer knitting, I'm hoping to get good at socks and maybe knit a couple market bags that I have queued.
