Spinner’s block


I swear, I’m not bipolar. I just go through these dramatic swings in interest level, commitment, and mood about spinning. At the moment, I’m not interested, committed or happy about it. I can’t even blame a “Christmas rush” like I did last year, because the work was much more evenly spaced out this year. And my current bad mood isn’t for lack of orders or interesting fiber to work with. Mom and Dad have been slaving over the carder (with glasses of red wine at the ready, for fortitude) and I just don’t wanna spin.

When I have writer’s block, I go back and look at what I’ve already written. The reading and editing get me back into the flow of creating. And when you have a grant due, getting something on paper is the first and most important step. It’s better to a have a sub-par proposal than none at all. The same concept  just doesn’t seem to hold when I’m spinning. It’s most definitely NOT better to have lumpy, bad yarn than none at all.

Anyway, any ideas from the crowd on lighting the fires of passion in my cold, dead heart? What do you all do when you just aren’t inspired to craft?

About cliffhousealpacas

Once upon a time, my dad drove by some funny looking animals standing on little dirt hills in a field. Thus, the dream of an alpaca ranch was born. Now, we are embarking on a grand adventure of raising alpacas and becoming fiber artists.
