I think it has to do with how busy you are. The busier you are, the less conscious you are of how much time you are burning up. I guess that would mean that I am TOO busy. I am trying SO hard to slow down.
I am not one of these people who handles stress very well. I don't multitask very well. If I need to, I get things done, but I pay the price in my inability to focus mentally. When I am stressed, I knit. The knit and purl rhythm soothes my fractured mental inabilities. It makes me feel as if I am accomplishing, at least, something.
I am making myself step back this week and focus on a small picture. I have too many projects on needles and I am slowly working on finishing several before I LET myself do something else.
After I designed my Sweet Little Nothing, I could not help but shrink it for sweet little girls. Here is one that I finished Sat night. It took less than 200 yards of worsted weight cotton. I'm working on finishing this one to wear on Sunday. It is a pinkish/coralish/rose colored cotton.I'm, also, working on finishing a short sleeved cotton summer sweater. It called Hey Teach. I tried to find some fabric for a skirt today, but didn't. I have the back almost done, one sleeve and the left front. This will be my night time knitting once I finish the above Sweet Little Nothing. And when I need a lace and bead and silk fix, I will work on my silk Gail. I am trying to make myself agree to that!
Tomorrow, a fiber buddy, Sue is coming over to dye with me. I may just supervise her and show her what I know. Sometimes, it is just fun to watch another person have fun with color.
