As I was munching away on my Arugala Salad with radishes and carrots, with pumpkin seed oil on top and with a healthy amount of garlic (only people living alone can eat that much garlic), I was thinking of the blessings and the curse of the internet. Before you know it, you've spent hours surfing from one place to the next and (most of the time) it's all interesting. What this means for the knitter is that there has never been more inspiration out there as in this online time. You see stuff and you want to do it all! My to-do list is growing every day. It bothers me, because I can't seem to enjoy the process of making things anymore. Halfway through (at least), my mind is already comtemplating the next project and the next and so on. I feel restless doing just the ONE thing. It's even worse if I have more than one project going. People! I only have two hands, I can only knit this one piece at a time! It's not like I've just realized this right this minute, but it's never been as apparent as today. I don't want to be an automaton knitting for knitting sake. So, the conclusion is for me to take it easy and pause and smell the roses once in a while, try to enjoy the whole process even more.
Stop and smell the roses!;o)
All that said, can you guess what I'm working on right now? Only three more squares to go! And I was enjoying it, sitting on the balcony, the wind blowing in my hair. Yeah! (only a slight twinge, reminding me about the curtains). By the way, my mom's socks are done, but I didn't take a pictures (on purpose, too many sock pics around already). They are on their way to Europe and I hope the color will NOT wash out and they will NOT be too big for her. Fingers crossed!
