The last couple weeks at work have been hard, mentally draining. It seems that it has sucked the creativity right out of me. Don’t get me wrong. I love my job, but right now is a difficult time. Lay-offs. budget cuts, re-organizing, it makes my head spin.
I have been out this week taking pictures here and there but none of them seem worthy of posting, so I haven’t really even been editing them.
So, I knit these days, hours and hours. I am working on my first sweater. The yarn is a beautiful blue wool, with many other colors subtly woven in. Knitting calms me, I am addicted to the fiber of it. While there is thought and energy that goes into parts of it, for large parts I can mindlessly create.
I am not sure really how to explain it, but I knit for the love of it, for the creativity of it, and for the calming of it.
Pictures to follow later – maybe – 🙂
