Day 2 and my knitting is still in my husbands vehicle. I’ve managed to distract myself with games on my iPad, it’s not as productive, accentuating my desire for my needles and yarn. Looks like I’m going to have to work on the baby blanket I’ve been avoiding. My new projects will have to wait until my husband brings them back to me tonight. It’s been a long day and it isn’t even over yet…..I think I will make it.
I left my knitting in my husband’s vehicle. Not just one project but many…pretty much all the ones I have been working on or wanted to pick up again in my knitting bag….and most of my needles. I am at a loss, what am I to do when my fingers are itching to knit. I might just have to fold laundry….I have seriously been avoiding that, I guess its time to fold, not knit.
Today is rough. Life is catching up to me and has me down. So today I knit for comfort. Feeling the stitches roll off the needles makes me feel as though I am accomplishing something amidst the mounds of failures that hit like a brick wall. Rehabilitation is a slow process when I am coming back from being down for so long. It’s hard to find satisfaction in the small steps forward. It’s hard to see progress. Sometimes my knitting matches my mood, today it does. I am plugging away at my two-at-a-time socks. Maybe if I can make progress my day won’t feel so unsuccessful.
