Where is it?

Don’t you hate it when you misplace something? I am driven to distraction trying to find it, remember where I last saw it or where I put it. Maybe you’ve seen it? My knitting mojo has gone missing. It was there one day and *poof* gone the next. I have done everything in my power to spark it. I have forced myself to knit a predetermined number of rows, spent hours on Ravelry looking for anything that would give me the urge to knit and when those things did nothing I went looking at yarn with the intention to buy something that screamed “Knit ME!” Still no luck. I am still mojo-less. I have read 3 books, watched hours of tv, played games on my phone until the battery is dead and still no mojo. I cleaned my house. I even cleaned behind and under the refrigerator and washed and rehung curtains. I washed walls people! This is serious. What do I have to do to get my mojo back? *sob*

    Sometimes you just need a break to make you miss it.

    Wow! Scary! Here’s something I do when I’m having a tough time finding or connecting with something…and I admit, it sounds a little out there, but it always always works. Here goes: I imagine the thing I am missing, then imagine a silken cord going from the object of my desire to my heart. Weird, yes, but worth a try…
    You could also try going through your stash for inspiration. Good luck!


  3. Oh dear. I have had this problem with my sewing mono and found a combination of patience and just ‘plugging away’ at it helped. Hope yours comes back soon.

    Perhaps a surprise from Nashville?

    I’ve had this happen too…it seems like it just took time. Do you have another craft you could work on in the meantime? Quilting? Embroidery? Anything?
    It was scary while it was going on…I thought I’d never knit again.

    Oh, no. I hate when my mojo goes AWOL. You’ve tried most of the things I usually do when I lose my mojo. Hopefully, time will be the answer. I’m sure you’ll be back to knitting soon.

    Don’t panic – it WILL come back! Where were you and what were you doing when you last remember having it?? Maybe you can recreate that scene and see if it is there waiting for you. But, yes, it must be really serious if you are washing walls instead of knitting. It might just be this time of year, when so many other things are going on. I like Marilyn’s suggestion of doing some other craft – I could introduce you to a few……. Wander around on Etsy, YouTube, and Pinterest for all kinds of creative inspiration. Lately I’ve been dreaming about making a miniature tiny trailer (since I’ll never have a real one) – want to join me???

    I dunno, it finds a way. I just saw a friend who didn’t knit for a year just come back into her mojo with a fierceness. Enjoy your books and a clean house in the meantime. It’ll come.
