There is nothing like a pile of yarn to create a sense of expectation.
It took me a while, but I think I now have enough skeins to start my afghan.
Why? Because I didn’t realize this.
No dye lot? When did that happen? Apparently during the last 15 plus years that crocheting was not on my TO DO list.
Note to Daughters: A To Do list can rob your soul. At the very least it creates a hurried memory loss about the joy givers in your life. Crocheting does not have to be on your list, but figure out what is.
Note to Daughters , Part II: You can ‘work outside the home’ and still have soul feeders on your list, with one caveat.
Don’t measure your raising children, crocheting, cooking, tending, gardening, reading, Christmas decorating , and cleaning by anyone else.
I bought this plastic container of knitting needles at the flea market a few years back. The container even has a top which is attached with string.
I love things like this.
This testament to one woman’s (the previous owner’s) ingenuity is my kind of feminine, cultural icon.
Apparently knitting was on her list.
