Exploding with Ideas
I think I could eat a bowl of Cheerios every single day for the rest of my life. Boring maybe but gosh I do love them so. Today my daughter starts the two day Bar exam test....fingers crossed! Around here the days have been mild, outside I inhale that coolness and embrace the chill in the air.
Remember a few days ago I said I wanted to finish a pair of socks. Well, of course my left hand started to ache so I had to set aside that project and let my hand heal. My hand is fine now but I think to be safe I'll let it rest more, for some reason my dpn knitting is hard on my hands. Using wooden needles has helped but still I get aggressive in the knitting.
I walk around day in and day out with ideas that pop into my head, visions of projects to be or maybe who should receive what gift that's been knitted by me for Christmas. I'm exploding with ideas! I dream of fingerless mitts or a cowl as the theme for the holidays. What do you think?
What I love best about being a knitter is the expanse of patterns and inspiration available more so now than ever. If I want to knit a cowl, within a matter of minutes I've gathered many patterns for my perusal. How can the internet be so awesome and give me this information instantaneously and yet the same internet can steal away my time? Oh the balance...
When the ideas are teaming and flowing over the brim of my mind, I jot them down-make notes and try to flesh out my budding creations. Perhaps that lovely cold front that breezed through yesterday is the reason for this desire to handle some alpaca and wool. Does it matter the why? Whenever inspiration strikes, I frantically capture each one on paper with my favorite pen.
