Since I posted about Maggie’s sweater, shown above being worn (yay!), I have knit things. Many small things. Some pairs of things. Things to add to the pile of knits that keep us warm.
Lately the knitting happens between other things; I have a job now, and ferrying children home from school takes a big chunk of the day. If I could knit while driving, man wouldn’t that be great?
I knit in small chunks, enjoying it when I can. I now understand the question “how do you find the time to knit?” because some weeks I don’t.
Here and there I pick up a project, finishing things some weeks, ignoring them others. But the knitting bag kindly waits for me, waits for those days when I have the time and energy to knit for a bit.
This post is a snapshot of my knitting progress, evidence that yes, I am a knitter. Knitting isn’t as central to my life as it once was, but I am so grateful to have all the yarn around. It keeps us warm.
This post is also to tell you about something I’m doing this Spring. My sister Holly is hosting a wellness retreat in Panama at the end of May. I’ll be attending (with knitting, naturally) and I’m so excited to participate in the retreat. In Holly’s own words, there will be “yoga, fitness, goal-setting, yummy food, adventure, relaxation” all at one of Panama’s most famous beaches. This is a new venture for my sister, and I hope you’ll have a look at her website to learn more about the trip. The “early bird” rate is available through the end of February.
Visit AlaskaHealthStyle for more details. If you have questions, leave a comment or email me and I’ll get you in touch with Holly. Thank you for looking!
