A Case of the Blahs

Well I have 2 friends expecting babies this fall and had wanted to knit them up something as a gift. I had picked out a dinosaur hat for one baby, still not sure what I'm doing for the other baby as we don't know yet if it's a boy or a girl. I ordered the yarn I needed for the dino hat & also ordered some yarn for upcoming christmas projects on my list. Now that the yarn is here I just can't seem to get motivated to do any knitting. I'm very intimidated by the pattern for the hat so I'm sure that is part of it. I also have several christmas projects on my list that I need to get going on, after the baby gifts, but my motivation seems to be on vacation. So I'm blogging instead and searching patterns and yarn to see if my motivation will come back. I've been busy with other things, wedding stuff, kids sports & band, yard work, holidays, etc. I also made some awesome crab legs & steaks for a cookout last weekend, it was so declicious! It seems like there's always something going on, but I really need to get out of this funk.

Can you join a KAL that would work with the projects you have in mind? Sometimes that's a good motivator. Or maybe you just need to chill for a little while, do something different.

Dont worry lady! I think spring/summer brings on the knitting blues. There's so much other stuff to be doing. It is nice to dream about having Christmas knitting going, but it is hard to be motivated. Maybe knit something small, hats dont take that much time, that could be a good starter. Even if you have pieces to attach to it, at least give the beanie part a try. :)
