Sometimes I just need to write to let it out. I never really know what "it" is. Get what out? It isn't a thought. I am trying to let go of thoughts. You know what I mean. The rumination about things that aren't productive to anything. Yeah, those. What do I do when I get like this? (which is 99% of the time) I usually knit. Knitting has saved me from so many things. It is the one place I can go and not a thought has to stay. It can blow away because I am counting. Not like OCD counting but like knitting counting.
I can not remember a time when I didn't knit. It is something that is just part of who I am. So why should you care? I don't know. I hope you all have something that you have the same passion for. In those times that knock you down it will get you through.
I remember where I lived and what was happening with every piece. This piece was done while sitting around the house waiting for Dr. Food to find a job. I sat there day after day knitting on this waiting for any glimmer of hope.
I will never forget what my life was like when I look at these pants. They represent so much to me right now. I am thankful that I can make these time capsules of my life. Don't worry, I won't go to the grocery store in these. They just are here to make me smile.
