…and I’ve been shocking my friends lately by telling them that I haven’t picked up the needles in 6 months. There have been gasps of astonishment in reaction to this, even from my non-knitting friends, which only goes to show how much they associate knitting with the essence of me. But so it goes, in ebbs and flows, and I don’t stress much. I knew all along that knitting would come back when it needed to. And indeed lately my fingers have been itching. Especially after I finally shipped off two baby sweaters, which had been finished before the long break, but never got around to being delivered.
In the end they were just in time for the birthdays of two babies. And experiencing the thrill of well-received hand-knits again has made me excited to pick up the needles again!
