Knitting Slump

I feel blah. I'm in a knitting slump. I mean, I still love to buy yarn but I can't bring myself to cast on. I tried to knit a simple triangle shawl in a sparkly mohair blend But half way through, I discovered I hated the yarn and bound off b/c frogging this yarn would have resulted in a rat's nest or worse, something kin to my daughter's bed head hair in the morning. So now I have a shawl that would only fit a Cabbage Patch doll sized pimp in a yarn I hate.

Any suggestions to get me out of this slump? I just feel no enthusiasm for a new project. Please help! Is there a Knitter's Anonymous in Athens? At this point, I'm willing to get road rage in Atlanta traffic for help.

Sometimes you just need a break. I wouldn't worry - if the inspiration is not there, do something else for a while. it will come back. Or take yourself to a bookstore and peruse the knitting titles.

or - try knitting a sock! :) Toe ups are Da BOMB! ;) Knitty's magic cast on for the toe is fabulous, and Cookie A's monkey sock is a great pattern (the pomatomus is gorgeous too...)
