The Slow Down


We are all just hanging out and relaxing, enjoying our time with one another.  Yesterday went by so fast and in between the opening of presents and the forever cooking in the kitchen (and the cleaning), I managed to sit and knit and just BE.  It felt good and I felt so happy.

 
I am tolerating the mess on the coffee table brilliantly.  Even Frodo looks like he is stunned by it.  It just wouldn't be Christmas without that big old pile of mess.


Some yarns that have been knitted with and that blue is going to be a wurm hat eventually.  Haven't started it yet but I love looking at it.


While cooking I managed to ball up two more skeins for my sweater that has been idle on the needles.  Every day my forearm feels better and I think it was more arthritis symptoms than abuse.  Let's just say I like to think it isn't from over knitting-tsk tsk tsk-that is like swearing.  Seriously I am happy with the amount that I can knit comfortably.


How was your Christmas??

  1. Good for you for slowing down.
    I'm trying to do that too, I'm horrible at it. I did manage to lie still in bed and read for a half an hour this morning. That was a real wonder for me.

  12. Fab time - enjoying the slow days here. Just been reading somewhere that it is bad luck to knit for others from Christmas Day to 12th Night - it's fine to knit for yourself though xxx
