Stitching Enui

Have you ever had a case of the “stitching blahs” where you just didn’t want to stitch? Or maybe it was more like you didn’t get to stitch because you were busy and that created a chain reaction sense of the “blahs” and led to even less stitching…. sort of like a case of “the Mondays” that we are all familiar with. How do you handle your stitching blahs and get back into stitching mode?  From Stitching the Night Away Blog Hop

I think "Stitching Enui" sounds more exotic than "Stitching Blahs" and conjures the vision of a fainting couch.  Since, I am determined to complete projects, I find it difficult to work on more project often, although on occasion, I do.  I do this when I am working on a large project and begin to suffer from project fatigue.  I will do a small project to re-energize.

The times I truly suffer from Stitching Enui,  I will knit socks from a delicious sock yarn.  Recently, I discover Paca Ped sock yarn which has Alpaca yarn in it.  I have a yarn store nearby that also is an Alpaca ranch, and discovered the yarn there.  Knitting gives me the same rhythm as cross stitch and lovely fiber to boot. 

Then, if that doesn't work, which usually it does, I will buy new stash.  Actually, I don't ever need an excuse to buy stash...bad days, good days, rainy days, snowy days, any day in general. 

There you have it, my cure for the Stitching Enui.  Now, I'm off...its Stitching Night.

  1. I use to knit a lot and loved it, now days I just stitch. Sometimes, once in a blue moon I'm working on a little knitting project. I do not have stitching blahs or enui - I suffer from lack of time...

  2. New stash is a great way to get rid of the blahs!

    P.S. You have to post the HTML code onto the HTML tab in order for it to show up correctly.

    1. HTML Tab?? where's that? Kinda new at this. It worked, just looked junky. I'm impressed I figured out how to get pictures on my blog and different backgrounds. I'm not so sure I could do it again.....LOL

  3. Hello

    I found your blog through Stitching The Night Away.
    I love the idea of knitting socks to get rid of the blahs and buying new stash is great too.
    I only get the blahs from repeatedly having to unpick the same area. Not very often thank goodness!

  4. Stitching Enui ~ I like that :) Definitely sounds better than blahs.

  5. Stitching Enui does sounds more exotic...unfortunatly I also buy new stash as one way to get over my stitching enui.
