I’m not sewing. I had that Project Run&Play blitz and I thought it would calm down afterwards but nope. My Project Sewn top took longer than planned. That put me behind on the Albion sew-along and I had to play catch up. And there were snow days. And now, Winter break. I don’t even remember what alone time feels like! And I needed to stop for a second. I finished up my Albion on Monday and decided that I would not sew for the rest of the week. I haven’t. But I did knit. Not on my machine, just regular sitting on the couch knitting.
Knitting socks on the couch while souricette 1 tries new techniques in my hair. And souricette 2 tries to copy her. (It hurts pretty often.)
Knitting on my mystery knit-along shawl while watching show and movies with Mr. Mouse.
It’s calming. I love how social this knitting can be. The sewing machine and knitting machine require me to be in another room, looking at what I’m doing all the time. This knitting I can do anywhere. I take it to the kitchen to chat with Mr. Mouse while he makes dinner. I take it to the living room to knit while the souricettes put on a show. I take it along on long car rides. It’s soothing and it’s all I want to do right now. Maybe it’s just what I need.
