At a standstill

All right, it is really starting to bug me that I'm not knitting. I've gone a week again without doing any. I've certainly done my share of procrastinating from what I ought to have been doing this weekend--writing movie reviews--but I just haven't had the burning desire to pick up the needles.

I'm not sure what the problem is. Sure, I have a bunch of other work that still needs to get done. (And I thought the year-end film stuff was finished now that the awards are over... Ha!) Putting those concerns out of my mind didn't seem to be a problem in the past when it came to finding time to knit.

Do I blame the writer's strike? I'm recording less television. Since I almost always have the TV on when I knit, the lack of new programming means I'm missing my background noise. (Yeah, that's just the thing to get the writers to cut a deal. I called their work background noise.)

I don't know what's going on. I feel distracted. I expect it will pass, but I'm irritated nonetheless.

i go through periods like this, too, but i try not to worry about it. i try to never let knitting become obligatory (just like blogging for me lol) because i know that takes the fun out of it. i'm sure you'll get back to it when you are good and ready.

If it is knitting background noise you are looking for, I suggest podcasts and audiobooks. I love them while I knit.
