It seems like every time I look at a new knitting magazine or the new Knitty, I wish I could knit them in a blink of an eye. I know I am not the only one out there with this problem. As a new enough knitter I have not learned to "bide my time!" I want to knit it because it's just the cutest little thing I ever saw! Then, I turn the page or surf some more and there just another and another. I tried out the 48 hours per project and it does work really well. However, I have found myself to be shuffling projects around and believing that I'll have more time for the one that keeps getting pushed back later or I tend to knit less on the project at hand because tomorrow I get to work on the fun one. How stupid can ya get? So I've decided I'll knit what I want when I want and be a happy knitter! I can't follow that much organization for things that I am creating and besides who am I kidding anyway? I so love EZ attitude about there are no knitting police. Not to mention a woman who was so far in front of her time. I love the things that I have learned from her and the fact that knitting was just apart of her life. That's what I want too. I enjoy knitting but I don't want it to become a chore and this week it sort of has. Also, I really want to do some knitting for others. I have spent some time today consider what charities I want to get involved in. Hopefully I can get that figured out and post my plans. I think with the passing of 9/11 has made me a little more aware of how I need to be a part of the changing of ideas. I don't want to feel that just because something did not affect me directly doesn't mean that I shouldn't get involved. Plus, I work with kids that have very little and some do not have a home to call their own; I need to show them that people care and that I care too.
On a happier note, I'll have pics of my works in progress for Sunday. Everyone enjoy the cool weather that makes us want to cast on another project or two because after all we still have plenty of needles left to fill!!
