Finding my muse

I go through a creative funk every year. I finish up a few major quilting projects and hit a period of low productivity and lack of creativity. I am trying not to be bothered by the lack of art work being completed but I inevitably am.
I am attempting to tackle my slump with trying out a technique that is new to me, a charted knitting pattern. I am making the Sipalu Bag in warm tones from Knit Picks.
What I have learned so far...
Charted knitting is not nearly as difficult I had imagined....

I have the pattern repeat memorized just as I am ready to change
I enjoy the purl rows with the color work.
Even with a mistake, the pattern still looks good.
