We’ve talked about knowing when to take the next step forward, but how do you know when it’s time to take a step back? Not to quit, not to give up, but when to fall back on tried-and-true projects, do something calming, easy, and meditative, rather than something that is a challenge or a stretch?
In all things, people need times of rest and renewal. We can only go so hard and so long before we burn out and get exhausted. In this week’s episode, we talk a little bit about knowing when it’s time to take a step back and breathe a little, so that we don’t burn out on knitting, crochet, and other fiber arts. We talk about the signs and the “doom feeling” that settles on us when a WIP isn’t working for us anymore, and tips and tricks for how to take a step back without giving up entirely. We also talk about our “old reliables” – projects that we like to fall back on when that doom feeling sets in, which can be found below:
