I haven’t posted in forever–haven’t had the time to pick up needles in a while–but it suddenly hit me this week why I HAD to start knitting again. My life is so cyclical–as a teacher before, now as a student and as a “stay-at-home mom” (why am I never at home if that’s my title???) and I feel like I never do anything that isn’t undone within some period of time (usually 24 hours). Everything keeps starting over. I just have to do it all over again. Imagine frogging the same project every night for the rest of your life, and there you have housework. Frog a very large project every semester, and you have student life. I just had to do something I could see with a beginning, middle, and end, so I picked up some needles and yarn.
What about you guys (or, more correctly, you people…forgive my midwesternisms)? I’d love to hear what makes everyone stitch. What got you started? What keeps you going? Looking forward to your responses,
