Rural Housewife or Tech Entrepreneur? You Decide

Thoughts of knitting

without comments

Ever have sleepless nights because you have too many thoughts running through your mind? Well that was me this morning. But rather than worries, knitting was on my mind.

It’s a funny thing too. I had taken a few months hiatus from Knitting because I didn’t have anything to knit. I still checked out knitting books from the library, browsed patterns online and tried to secretly study how my co-workers sweaters were constructed, but I didn’t have anything interesting enough to cast on.

A couple of weeks ago, I began doodling with sock yarn in the evenings only to frog it out just before I went to bed and eventually came up with a project. Excited to get going, I ignored my wrist and have been paying for it for the last few days.

So here I am in bed this morning trying to get back to sleep and all I can think about is sticks, strings and stitches.

In fact, I’m thinking about a blanket based on Elizabeth Zimmermann’s Knitter’s Almanac April Mystery Blanket. But, instead of uniform squares, what about a mix of sizes and even some rectangle shapes… More like random tiles or a stone wall?

Hmmm. Might have to spend a few more mornings thinking about that one.
