Indecisiveness.

So the last few months have been interesting, semi entertaining and most definitely challenging.  As I’m (kinda, sort of, who am I kidding NOT) ok with going back to work I have found a tolerable work- life balance.

What has helped me keep a little of my sanity and a little of my pre mommy self has been my knitting. I have been particularly stressed about my work environment this week and as a result I have been project jumping.

Last weekend was the NY Sheep & Wool Festiva in Rhinebeck and I am completely obsessed with my haul.  One of the yarns I purchased was for the Masala Shawl by Michelle Wang from part of the Spice collection.  I was so annoyed following work one day this week I wound up the first skein and began.

First, I put aside a paying project to do this (and a few long term ones).. not the end of the world but there is a deadline there!

Second- this pattern is amazing and I can’t put it down! There is a beautiful simplicity to the use of only two different stitch patterns and it’s one I can easily get lost in its repetitiveness. The other beautiful thing about this pattern is I gained the knowledge of a new cast on technique.

Learning this is invaluable since I am still learning so so much about knitting, I’m not a beginner any more but there is still so much for me to learn and find comfort in…

Until next time my lovely knitters…

**I began this post a few weeks ago in frustration and even though I am finishing it now it is refreshing to go back and see how my feelings about my current life have been changing and morphing- daily. I feel that it is important for me to still share these posts as maybe, just maybe someone in my similar situation will read and we can connect…
