I got back on my wheel a few days ago, trying to get my mojo back after surgery. Now that I can physically spin and do other fiber-related activities again, I’m having trouble deciding what to do. I’ve had a bit of brain fog since I came home–which probably explains some of the indecisiveness. I finally decided to grab some fiber and start spinning. I wish I could say that this instantly brought back my fiber mojo, but I guess it’s a start.
I’ve suffered burnout before–after 6 years of full time fiber arts–but this feels different. It’s not that I don’t want to do something with my fiber and yarn. It’s almost like I can’t concentrate when I get started on something. I’ll cast-on yarn for a beanie and then after a few rows, I’m already sick of the project. I’m sure this will eventually pass and I’ll be back at it full steam in a few weeks. I’m trying to be patient with myself for now since I haven’t even reached the 6 week post-surgery mark yet. A little spinning is better than no spinning, so that will have to be enough for now.
