Knitting in order to breath...well, that kind of says it all, doesn't it? I remember once, around year #2 in my teaching career, I had a student who - bless him- managed to vex me enough that I excused myself from my lesson - history, I think - and sat down, took out my sock, and started to knit. That was the year I had taught a number of my 5th graders to knit, so they understood. It was knit or throw things - I think I made the right choice. So now, it seems the busier I get, the more I want to knit. Is it procrastination? Maybe - but not totally. My rector once told me, after he asked me to be Junior Warden, that if you want to get something done, you ask a busy person. So my knitting is just starting to work its way into the rhythm of my busy life. I think it's actually helping me get through the demands of the end of the year, grad school, and m-i-l's surgery. Hooray for knitting and as E.Z. would say, knit on with confidence!
Speaking of knitting on - this is the Ribbon Lace Scarf from Knitty.com spring 2008. I want to make it for my graduate school advisor as a thank you present. So here I am, adding another WIP to my list - like I need another one. I'll look in my yarn stash and see if there's anything hiding that might knit up nicely into a scarf - 10 in. x 80 in ...on size 3's...that's a lot of knitting. Maybe some nice Noro sock yarn! I'll check it out this weekend...or maybe this - Claudia Handpaints - hmmm... this could be nice! Photos to come, I'm sure!
