sticks, beads and strings
make wonderful, beautiful things

More thoughts

while I avoid what I should be doing, which is laundry, laundry, a couple more loads of laundry and cleaning the kitchen, both bathrooms and living room.

Knitting is crack. Have I said that before? I am sure I have, about a bazillion times. I don’t understand this addiction. I keep thinking that if I could just knit enough, I’d get it out of my system, but the opposite is true. The more I knit, the more I want to knit. What is it about those rows of perfect stitches than so compels me to make more of them? Is it because it’s the one area of my life that I have some modicum of control over? What am I trying to accomplish here? Covering the planet in wool? I mean, I knit alot. Seriously alot. And yet, I want to knit more. I long for stretches of time with two sticks and string, and nothing else. And I do not understand this compulsion.

Not only do I knit, and knit alot, but I read about knitting. I have even dreamed about knitting. I get up in the morning thinking about knitting, and knitting is usually the last thing I do before going to bed. As I sit here typing this, I have Grandmother’s socks to my right, and DS#1′s right in front of me, and in my mind is the beautiful purple for the swallowtail shawl.

I wish there was a point to this post, but there really is not. There’s not even a conclusion here. I guess maybe I am just wondering if anyone out there can validate me in my obsession. I admit to being overwhelmed by the knitting, and yet. I. cannot. stop.

I think this may be the weirdest blog entry I have ever made. And yet I am posting it. Because…….it’s a true picture of my mind this dreary Sunday.
