Fun with Yarn

I've been sick for the past 5 days.  I'm still under the weather a bit, but I finally found the idea medicine cocktail today and felt like I was miraculously cured.  It was AMAZING the difference I felt in such a short amount of time.  All of a sudden, I was overwhelmed with energy - I could breathe and talk again, I felt like getting up off the couch, I wanted to go outside, I wanted to do everything.  It felt so good to feel better.

So, after my husband talked me out of doing anything crazy, and after my failed attempt to get a manicure (I need it so bad too, but who would think that the salon would be closed on Sunday?), I decided to get crazy and dig out some knitting projects that have been languishing for a year plus.  It was so much fun to dig out the sweater I've been making for over a year, and see how close I am to being finished.  I sat on the couch and knit for about an hour.  I forgot how enjoyable it is to knit.  Now I'm re-enthused to dig into my knitting projects again.  What fun!


  1. The nail places around here are closed on Sunday's too - which seems to be the only day I actually think about doing something like that.

    I haven't tried to knit since a very failed attempt to learn many years ago. I keep thinking I should try again. And then I think about my cats and how much fun they would have with the yarn and I decide it's a bad idea.

    Glad you are feeling better enough to have some fun picking up an old project. Pictures when complete?

  2. Glad you're feeling better. And I agree - I want to see pictures when you finish! I don't know how to knit, but maybe it will inspire me to finish some of my sewing and DIY projects...

  3. You reuniting yourself with your knitting reminds me that I have a pile of half finished sewing projects that are nagging me to get finished... Maybe tomorrow!

  4. Delighted you feel better! And nothing is more pleasing than rediscover an old hobby. Love, Fran
