I did it!
Remember a few weeks ago, during my week in the life project, when I posted the photo above about wishing I had time to do some knitting? Well, I made time and I also made my first completed project......
...a new scarf! I'm so glad I made myself find some time to sit down every evening and let my hands stay busy while my mind relaxed. I started teaching myself to knit last fall, knitting ( in a practicing sort of way) all the time, but always unraveling each piece until I could get it "right." My kids thought I had a serious problem with all the unraveling I was doing, but I was never satisfied - until now. The needles felt better in my hands, the stitches were cast on, and the project flowed like it was supposed to. Of course, this was a simple project, easily completed in a couple of evenings, but I'm still so glad that I finally finished something worth keeping, lol!
Oh, I think I could certainly get used to this and all the wonderful, soft, knitted projects that I could work on. The beautiful yarn, the colors, sitting next to a warm fire every night, the busyness of hands that brings peace of mind...yes, I could definitely get used to this.
