Once Again a Knitter

Well, something has happened in the last few days. No, not an influx of home insurance quotes, but stitching. I don’t know whether the change was internal or is just spurred by the finishing of something, but I am once again a knitter. I knit when I am happy, I knit when I am sad, and when in doubt, I knit. Since I last posted I have finished the hat for Drama, continued on the hat for That One, Stuntman has picked the yarn for his hat, and I have started a shawl for a grieving friend of a friend. Yarn is still the best way I know to send a tangible hug.

And you know what else? When you are knitting for someone who is having a really bad time, it helps you to stop and consider your own life, doesn’t it?

Anyway, at the first of the year, I kinda told myself I was just gonna do one project at a time. Maybe a new one, and then finish an old one and so on, so on, so forth. Yeah, right. Most of my unfinished stuff is for myself, and I am just not that in to me right now. There will be time for that later.
