Sometimes a short break from knitting isn't bad for the soul.
I can't find in any of my knitting books where it says you have to knit 24/7.
Read a book, do a crossword puzzle, get out more with the dog, go shopping for no yarn items.
Look through your knitting pattern books at all the things you would diffently NOT make, then you might stumble upon something you would LOVE to make.

Taking a day or two off from knitting is definitely a good idea, but if that doesn't get you going again, you might try what I call the "Two Row Rule." When I have a slump that doesn't want to go away, I make myself knit two rows on each of my current WIPs every day. That way, even if it's not exciting me at the moment, the projects get done ... eventually.

Works for me, your mileage may vary...

I also cross stitch so if I don't feel like knitting, I work on a project. I also tend to knit a lot less in the summer since I am riding more. We have horses and I really don't ride them during the winter.

I alternate from knitting obsessively to reading obsessively. I'm reading right now. But, I always get inspired by looking at Vogue Knitting issues from the '80s in my bookshelf. : )
