There are things on my knitting needles again! There is a relief there in those words that might be difficult for a non-knitter to understand. With all the turmoil of moving, with all the changes going on in the past year, plus having a new puppy in the house, the desire to knit has been strong, but the actual knitting has been non-existent until now.
Yesterday the Husband put up the Christmas tree in the living room and moved the lift chair I have not used because of moving boxes and catch-all coat holder service, to a place where I can use it! This wonderful change prompted me to find some yarn and get to work on something. I
to announce an unfinished project was located and knitting has begun.
Not only has knitting begun on a scarf for myself – I have also ordered some yarn for a Christmas present to make. Since I am not sure if the person I am knitting for reads this blog or not, I am just going to leave it at that. Any time I am waiting on yarn to come in gives me the same sensation I used to have as a child waiting for the mail and a package. The thrill of it is still the same. Opening a package of yarn, or going to a yarn store and looking through said yarn is just like opening presents on Christmas morning! Yes, yarn is just that special to knitters.
Did I mention that knitting also settles the rattled nerves? I didn’t? Shame on me! Knitting helps you to settle rattled nerves, as well as helps any of the winter blues you may experience – as I do. So, I am knitting again. Life is settling back into a good place. 🙂
