Knitting My Way to Sanity

Well, I have definitely started knitting again.... It kind of goes that I will start and then life happens to me and I stop.  I have kind of recognized that I can't stop now that I miss it so much when I am not knitting it helps keep me on an even keel.  Even with my students and everything going out of whack that I need that knit, purl knit, purl or whatever I stitch I am doing.

I am presently working on several projects as usual, Something hard, something beautiful, something that will be utterly wonderful.  I am off on my knitting journeys including  The Prisoner of Azcaban Scarf.  I know its a little "old" but I got busy and it is perfect to work on between classes.   I will upload a picture in a bit but its starting to come together.

Knitting Again

I finally got a new camera so that I can take some decent pictures. It will be nice to display my work with a quality camera. I have been working on a scarf with Touch Me yarn. It is for a dear friend but now at least I have an opportunity to let you see the colors. This blog is going to change. That nutty picture of mine is going into the background. I'm Coming Out.

When will Knit Again Sung to the tune of When Will I See You Again

When will I have time again?
When will knit and finish something?
Will I have to wait till Sunday?
Will I have to go far away?

When will I sit down and knit?
When will I share precious moments?
Am I knitter or a faker, just woman
who buys yarn.

When will I knit again
When will I knit again.

Happy New Year

I like several people contemplate my life on New Years' Day. Well I do anyway. I took one of those tests and it said something that was just so profound to me that I was afraid to move forward. So this year I have decided to confront my fears, even my fears in knitting. I'm going to feel the fear and do it anyway. I was kind of worried about finishing this sweater I had seamed up, and today I finished it totally. There is something so satisfying about finishing. I am going to try to experience a lot of that this year. Happy 2006!

Don't post here often

It is amazing how many great blogs there are, and my knitting difficulties are small and insignificant compared to the complexities of life. I care about a lot of other issues but knitting blogs are simply that for knitting. A lot of people think we are hiding in the knitting, actually when I knit I have been able to solve so many problems. I have discussed more politics and got involved in issues because of online knitting discussions. So here's to knitting in the next year and more knitting.

I am enjoying everything I am knitting but I have to admit I am taking too long. I have at least 10 projects with me on a daily basis. I am finishing the seams on one sweater. I am making one front of a jacket and I am making a knitting tote bag. I have been working on one sock for 6 months and its on a singular loop. I am also making the front of a tank top. I am making my husband a sweater and I need to finish the sleeves and the front

I really need a kick hopefully I'll get on with it.

First Post

I guess my first blog post should set the world on fire, should display my razor sharp wit, introduce me to the world as a go-getter! But....., I'm too tired so I'll just say hi, hopefully you'll like what I have to say and I'll enjoy saying it. I 'm a consumate knitter. I am a yarn snob, in that I like natural fibers. I understand synthetic yarns for afghans, pillows, baby clothes, some scarves, and school-age children's sweaters. Otherwise do the very best you can. I love to knit and I carry my bag every day. I have to touch yarn at least once a day so if you are like me you may enjoy what I have to say.
