I have done virtually no knitting for a month. I have been busy, sure. But mostly, I have just not been filled with a burning desire to pull my knitting out. In my spare time, I have wanted to sit and chat with old friends and family, to relax by a fire on a cold evening, to go for a walk, or cuddle up with a book. I have not felt the need to multi-task. I have hardly spent a minute on Ravelry (gasp!) or reading knitting blogs. New patterns have been released in that time, undoubtedly, and I haven’t seen them. The world keeps turning. I continue to breathe in and breathe out.
We have been wearing a lot of hand knitted items, because it has been very cold:
However, despite carefully packing travel knitting and carrying it with me across the ocean and around North America, I knitted all of six rows while I was gone, and none since I’ve been back.
And life goes on.
