I don’t know about you, but there is something about the weeks after the holiday season that makes it nearly impossible for me to design or even to simply crochet. I keep thinking that I’ll pick up my newest project and crochet but then I get distracted and never seem to get any crocheting done at all.
Looking back, this same exact thing happened to me at this time last year. I think it was February or March before I really got back into my work.
I’m trying to figure out the trigger for this behavior and I think that it is simply that I get overwhelmed by all the things that I’m doing, trying to do and hoping to do for the new year. I get completely stymied and can’t move forward at all.
I’m sure that I will eventually bust through this creative block, but I’m going to give myself the time I need because forcing it won’t do anyone any good.
This weekend, I need to make the Make It Crochet blog posts, write the weekly newsletter, write the CGOA Chain Link Newsletter, write a pattern round up for Monday, schedule the daily 8-10am Coffee and Crochet Free Pattern Links for the Facebook group. Do you see what I mean? It’s so much in such a small amount of time that I can’t even find my way to do any of them.
Time to reevaluate my priorities and get back in the game. 🙂
Many of you have written to me to ask how you can help support CrochetKim. A Patreon account was suggested but I thought it would be better to provide ad-free PDFs of my patterns so you would get something in return. I'm steadily working on adding PDFs to all my patterns and I've also made this compilation available at a discounted price. You can, of course, view, print, paste to a word processor, convert to PDF, etc. on your own. This is just an extra feature so that people help out, if they want. Thank you to all of you for your overwhelming support and kindness these many years. Enjoy!
