So where am I at with my knitting?
Well as you all knew, I couldn't stop. I guess knitting is my yoga after all. But I do feel very quiet with my knitting at the moment. And that is okay. I live life out loud and that crosses over to my knitting. Sometimes I get worried that I will die before I get to do all that I want to do, knit all that I want to knit, see all that I want to see, learn all that I want to learn. Sometimes I share these thoughts and others always think I am odd for it. Maybe because I truly believe I will live to at least 90 in good health and that seems like plenty of time to most. But there is so much life to live. I don't want to leave this world with regrets. So sometimes I overdo it. (Shut up Ted, it is only sometimes, define sometimes then mister!).
So for a change I don't feel urgent about what I am doing. I don't feel the need to cast on a million projects. I don't feel the need to be planning, planning, planning. I feel strangely peaceful. I just want to knit for knitting sake. That's it. Hell at the moment I'm not even trying to talk Ted into buying a sailboat so we can sail around the world, you know even though we can't sail and I get terribly seasick; details, details, details.
My dryer is overflowing with UFO's and WIP's. I have some charity knitting I have put off for too long. I plan to frog where necessary and finish up all else. Maybe even the dryer will be empty before I start anew, maybe. I like the sound of that.
I also plan to use this down time to play with some of the other crafts that I dapple in and some I have been meaning to try.
And of course I owe you all a hundred and one book reviews as promised.
This slowing down thing isn't all bad; who would have thought it.
And because blogs need photos.
See cupcakes do rule the world.
