If you get in a knitting rut, this is my advice: start experimenting on small projects to get your knitting mojo back!
Learning new things is a challenge. When you are a beginner, there are so many things that you don’t know that it can seem overwhelming to actually knit something productive.
My advice: experiment with new knitting techniques on a small project – mittens, hats, socks, cowls. These projects are not all that much bigger than a large swatch, and if you have to rip part of it out, it can’t be a lot!
I knit some socks from Sensational Socks to see if I could learn how:
They aren’t perfect, but very warm and playful!
Another time, I knit some colorful socks and mittens out of scraps, and refined my color knitting for a good cause (Afghans for Afghans).
Don’t stay stuck – experiment and play!
