It's March, unbelievably it's March! Yesterday the sky is gray, but enough light pushed through the clouds to create an amazing sunrise. The air is warmer and the birds are beginning to sing their mating songs. It is spring, a time of awakening, with a world full of distractions and wonders. Spring is the time to shake off the cold of winter and to wake from the doldrums.
I love to blog because of the common sense comments from friends who know knitting, who have concete suggestions and good knowledge to share. The comments ranged from encouragement to reasons not to continue, every comment was valid, every one gave me something to think on. I thought, I stewed, I studied the two projects that were giving me pause. And then, clarity came. Denial is a strong emotion, but eventually it gives way to reality. The projects in question were abandon. One must listen to the voices (of knowledge) they whisper the truth.
The question was what to do in their place? The only projects on my needles (excluding the sky scarf) are Luciole, a very simple, yet elegant shawl and Klemsoctt, formerly known as they TTL Mystery Sock. However, the sock just isn't as portable as I'd like and the small needles keep me from working on it for long. My days of a pair per month are over, it may be a pair per year from now on.
There has been pattern searching and stash diving. There will be decisions soon. This house if full of promise and potential. I just need to tap it and get my head on right! Spring should be helpful! Thank you for helping me see the light, friends!
