I think everyone's given great suggestions.

I'll add another. One of the ways I started getting interested in amis again after a rutt (tired of the same stitches over and over) was by trying to invent my own "signature style. I noticed that a lot of the designers I liked had similar looks in their amis. I wondered if I could make my own. It took weeks of sketching and trying and frogging and making and making agian but in the end I came up with a doll style that is pretty unique to my dolls.

For me, focusing on perfecting one component was key. I ended up making endless crochet 'wigs' before making them to my satisfaction.

You won't necessarily need to learn new techniques but the challenge of inventing your own may be enough to make it fun.

I'd like to make blankets, but the length of time involved in that endeavor is intimidating.

That's why you should have a few projects going at once.  I can never finish a project straight through unless it's fairly small.  I have a 12 pointed star afghan going that I get out every so often and work a few rounds on whenever I'm in the mood
