Woes of a Spoiled Knitter

I've been feeling a little bit burnt out on knitting.
I was knitting constantly for a while to avoid doing my homework, but now I'd much rather cuddle on the couch or read a book, and have barely touched my project.

It probably doesn't help that my current project is a red hart coffee cozy, and I'm ONLY using the icky yarn because I feel guilty about being such a snob. I want it gone so desperately, but can't throw it out, so all I can do is knit with it and then fling the finished projects far from my sight- but I don't wanna, so there it sits.

I KNOW that using a tough machine washable fiber is a much better fit for this project than something I enjoy looking at and touching. And seriously, there are worse yarns than this. There were centuries where the only thing available was scratchy steel-like wool, and then the few decades of dull harvest gold plastic - this is NOT that kind of bad.

But even though I feel like a spoiled brat, I can't argue against the fact that knitting feels like a chore right now.
