Just Really Haven't Been In The Mood

After making crocheted and knitted items for the 2 craft shows that I participated in, I really haven't been in the mood to knit or crochet. I did knit on a poncho last night but completed only about 5 to 7 rows. I can usually sit and knit or crochet for hours. I need to get back in the swing of it so that I can finish a few projects.

'tis diff'cult fer me to stay focused'n schtuff with these shorter days. i don't start nothin' new myself ('course, i can't knit'r crochet...) 'til what i've'n my plate's tended to. that unfinished schtuff drives me a bit nutty :)

I started knitting on the poncho again a few nights ago. I think I have done about ...ooohhhh, not quite 25 rows since then. So there's been a bit of progress there.

I have an afghan project I didn't finish for last Christmas that I recently discovered in a bag. I still don't feel like finishing it, but I guess I will eventually.

Depending on the kind of afghan it is, you could commit to so many rows or squares per day or week at the minimum. Then you just might surprise yourself and finish it long before you thought you would!! You could take it on the road with you and work on it during quiet times.

I must have been tired! I slept a good part of Saturday after the craft show and slept good last night, too. I feel more rested. I think I knitted about 14 or so rows tonight.

This time of year my motivation and energy gets up and walks out in a huff. No light and SADD.

What's the saying? My get up and go done got up and went. It does get all drab and dreary in the winter. I like to keep busy with stuff so that I don't feel so much that way.

I often feel that way with my crafts (carving and painting). I find that I'm more motivated when I make sales in my Etsy shop, which hasn't happened too often this year, so I haven't been making too many items. I'm also motivated at the last minute when I've procrastinated so long, that a deadline is fast approaching!

Procrastination is not good. I do that too often myself. Oh..that reminds me. I've put off paying the internet bill. I need to get that done tomorrow!!! LOL For your Etsy shop, do you have LOTS of different items or a small amount of different items of which you have a few variations? Do you do better selling a lot of different items or a small amount with a few variations?

I believe you crocheted too much and now you simply need a break.
