Once more into the yarnporn.
I think it has actually helped that I've been away from it. I've been working on a lightweight piece that has gradually soothed the frazzled nerves of churning out badge friendly event items asfastasIpossiblycanpleasedon'thurtmeAudreyIpromiseI'llfinishsoon. But it definitely took a while. I think that's interesting; I enjoyed the camaraderie of the Ravelympics (as opposed to the competition), but I much prefer my knitting to be something that I enjoy while I'm doing it. I think I've finally made it to the point that, so help me God, I really do use knitting as a stress reliever. Who knew? But I think it has actually happened. I think it's also helped that the weather has prematurely moved into thoughts of spring, and sunshine, and the promise of new projects is once again beckoning to me.
So tonight I am hoping that I finish my latest piece, along with a glass of wine. But if I don't finish, I'm not gonna stress about it. Because this time, I am enjoying the journey along the way to the final destination. And if that means another glass of wine now, and another day to complete later, so be it.
I think I've earned it.
