So, I have this spreadsheet that I use to plan out my blog posts (because I am a nerd, and like to be organized). Today I was supposed to tell you about how I knit up the arms on my Stellar’s Jay Cardigan. It was going to be a nice little post, to give you an update on my progress, and tell you about how well everything was going.
Well. It turns out that today’s post will actually be a little different. It will be about how I forgot to work on my sweater at all since you last saw it, over a month ago.
It’s sitting in its little project bag, between my stash of sock yarn and my little chest of finished projects. I look at it every couple days and think, “I should probably pick that up and knit a row or two.” But, still it sits there, forlorn and neglected.
I could make excuses, pleading that I have been too busy with other projects (which is sort of true). I could say that I have been busy with work, or getting ready for summer. But the truth of it is, I’m just not feeling inspired by my little blue sweater.
I’m sure I’ll pick it up again, one of these days. I’ll suddenly get the urge to finish it, and I’ll dive back in head first, but for right now, I’m happy chugging away on some other projects I’ve got in the works. It’ll be waiting for me when I get back to it.
Do you ever put a project on hold? What do you do to get your inspiration back?
