Tips to help beat the “January Blues”

As the winter months drag on, it can be easy to fall into the January blues. But for crafters, this time of year can be especially challenging. After the busy holiday season, it can be hard to find the motivation to pick up your knitting needles or crochet hook and create something new. But don’t despair! Here are a few tips to help you find inspiration and stay motivated during this time of year.

Tips for getting your crafting mojo back

Set Goals

One of the best ways to stay motivated is to set specific goals for your crafting. Whether it’s a certain number of rows you want to complete each day, or a specific project you want to finish by the end of the month, having something to work towards can help you stay on track.

Take a break

Sometimes, the best way to jumpstart your creativity is to step away from your craft for a little while. Whether it’s going for a walk, reading a book, or perhaps attending a workshop to learn a new hobby, taking a break can help clear your mind and give you a fresh perspective on your knitting or crochet. 

Get creative

If you’re feeling stuck, try experimenting with different techniques or materials. Try a new stitch, play around with different yarns or fibres, or even try working with unconventional materials like plastic bags or denim scraps.

Join a community

One of the best ways to stay motivated is to surround yourself with like-minded people. Joining a knitting or crochet group, can provide you with the support and inspiration you need to keep going.


So, don’t let the January blues get you down! With a little bit of motivation and a lot of creativity, you can keep crafting through the winter months and come out on the other side with a beautiful new project to show for it.
