Continuing with my PSA that finally, today is Friday, I’ve come to the conclusion that titles are difficult after you’ve committed to one concept for more than one or two posts. Writing is hard. Good writing is harder. Great writing is not something you’ll ever find here. Still, I’m thrilled that you do come by. I miss you when you don’t. When I started this blog, I was doing it for fun. I was a little bored at work and decided to have an online journal and talk about my knitting. That was three years ago this July. All I can say is, WOW! I still enjoy the process and find myself thinking about my life in terms of blog posts (not all the time).
I had a meeting last night, so I did not get much knitting done (only 1/2 row on CeCe). I have to have the car worked on tomorrow and guess what I’m doing????? Yup. I hate just sitting there and since the Mum can’t drive anymore, I’m trapped. So, I’ll knit. I’m not even slightly unhappy. I’ll wander over after we go to the farmer’s market and spend the time knitting away. It’s amazing how knitting has changed my view of so-called downtime. I no longer feel like a rat trapped on a sinking ship. I’m busy and happy and if I get tired of knitting (what????), I can read a bit.
Do you have big plans for the weekend? Not me. I just told you my big plans. I have noticed a definite change since the gas prices became obscene. I notice more people on their front porches reading and chatting. I haven’t seen much of that since I was a kid and most people only had one car. I see them on my way to work and on my way home. I really do wonder how much completely unnecessary driving we all were doing before this jolt?
I did actually drop from the Goddess Knits Mystery Shawl-a-long. I figured I didn’t even want to get the emails. I applaud their enthusiasm, but I’m being a bit more forgiving of myself for not wanting to join the pack. I don’t need another deadline or competitive knit. It doesn’t bother me a bit when people like to race, but when the whole thing becomes an albatross around my neck I want out. The Summer of Socks will be a bit less demanding. I plan on knitting a pair of socks this summer. No pressure. Just a pair of socks. I would also like to finish (SSS) about four others. That’s all. I love socks and I love seeing everyone else’s. And, if socks don’t float your boat, how about mittens, hats or scarves? I like the sense of community. Maybe that’s it.
So, on that random rumination, you all have a great weekend!!!!
