I think it's because I feel like everything is on hold. Of course, getting these things done, even walking, will help things to move forward. This is a typical state for me, and also for my siblings. We learned it from our mom. Too bad we didn't learn to keep busy from our dad, who had hobbies and would work in the yard or on the car quite often. On my good days I'm like that. Most of the time, however, I fall into the "I should" mode, which means that nothing gets done. My mom didn't work a regular job until my youngest brother was in school. Before and during that time, she would talk about going back to college. I think she would have loved to be in school. She was a voracious reader and learned so much that way. She also talked about becoming a party planner, which would have also been a great pursuit. There were so many things that she wanted to do but could never muster the energy to put into action. I can be the same way, and I know my sister and brothers do the same thing. How do we snap out of it?
One thing that doesn't suffer is knitting. Since much of my "I should" time is spent doing nothing, I end up spending that time knitting. Too bad I'm not interested in designing. Are there any jobs for people to just knit? I could do that (though I think the competition would be stiff).
Since the last post, I mailed off a few things to my sister, who just moved to Denver. Don't mind the pictures. I should set up a light box, but, you know.
|Wristers from leftover yarn.|
|Snake Skin Cowl from shiny Sublime Yarns Lustrous|
|Song of the Sea|
|Lovisa Armwarmers that I forgot to put the buttons on.|
I have also finished a Shawl Collar Cowl and the Orbitus Hat. Both of those and the Bunny Nuggets, wristers, and Lovisa Armwarmers were made to use up stash. The Shawl Collar also used some extremely gorgeous Classic Elite Yarns MountainTop Chalet. It is so soft and fluffy. The cowl is quite bulky in the front, though, with all that overlapping fabric. I think it needs to go to someone who lives in the arctic.
