changing direction

I have come to a screeching halt with the Swedish Wool.  I started to cast on and the wool did not feel right for the design I’ve been working on… so… I put all the lovely yarn in a zippered tote and put in the closet to totally rethink it at a later date.  Mildly frustrating because I wanted to go forward with the Peruvian style design and I wanted the colors I had sketched out. So that is on hold for a while too, which is fine, but I felt immediately restless afterward, creatively pacing, going over forgotten unfinished hibernating projects. I remembered I had  a lace project  on the needles that I put away over a year ago, after having  cast on & worked a couple of repeats, I put it down for one forgotten reason or another.  Well, now back to a clean slate and defrag’ing.    This morning I see a dense fog in the valley, and the sun is making its way up into the sky along with crystal clear and glistening day.   Life is just charming sometimes, even if I have to disrupt things and keep changing direction, I must allow myself to do so occasionally.   So here is a Fishwives Stole since picking it up and knitting another repeat….

Why did I ever put this lace project down?  Last night I spent some time figuring out where I was on the chart so I could continue confidently,  and this morning I am now resuming a super fun knit, just what I am in the mood for.   Good knitting,  morning sun streaming in along with knitting podcasts, and fresh cups of coffee too, my kind of bliss.

  1. I love that color blue. Really yummy! I also have a couple of shawls on the needles that have been on retreat for several months so that I can get this blanket finished for my daughter. It’s been over a year and a half since I started it and I’m determined to use Covid-19 to complete it. “There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, than are dreamt of in your philosophy.”

    We just never really know what’s to be do we? 🤷🏻‍♀️

    • Aw right , an opportunity to dig up hibernating works-in-progress and get them done & dusted! I love your quote, so fitting, and appreciate your wisdom! xx

I'd love to hear what you have to say...
