Something's Blocking!

All of a sudden I am knitting! Knitting like I used to knit. And I am not sure why.

There are several things going on in my life right now that might be facilitating more knitting getting done. One is that I have been quite sick lately and have set aside some time to myself, to use all to myself; no training, no school work, no dieting. And second, one of my lovely friends brought over a bunch of television for me to watch: Lost, Reno 911, Weeds. So for the last couple of days, I have had time to knit and television to watch. That's a fabulous combination for me knitting-wise.

But there is another idea that I have. It's a bit more psychological. I haven't written much personal stuff on my blog lately, but there has been a lot of destruction in my life lately. There have also been some (hopefully!) final endings, and some space given to people who need to give more rather than take more in a friendship with me. So, amidst all this tearing down, perhaps I have a need to build a little, to create a little, to balance the scales a bit. What'cha think?

And I'd like to give a big thanks to Holly at Hollyarns for sending my such a sweet St. Patrick's Day card. It really made my day at a time when my match just got cancelled and I got some terrible news. Thanks!!!

Setting side time just for you sounds like a good idea. Everyone needs it, I know I do.

I am so lame. Yours is the second blog tonight where I screwed up a comment, lol. I know what you mean by destructive stuff going down. I have a friend who is in self-destruct mode right now. She saddled me with a big secret that only I know. So to other people I probably look like I am not being supportive enough, etc. Oh well. Things will get better for both of us, I am sure. As for your knitting - go with your big bad self! It truly is a great kind of therapy. Whoever said "knitting is cheaper than therapy" must not ever go to yarn shops or browse online... :-/
