Be still, Thursday

Hi Knit Friends,

I have been working really hard to complete projects at work. I can tell that a sense of accomplishment in my work life is reflected by the amount of papers and books stacked in my workspace. Everyday this week I was focused on knitting during lunch to sooth me. As many people will describe knitting to be a meditation¬†practice or a way to gather your thoughts. Knitting helps me center my mind and through each project I learn something new. I do not consider myself a risk taker, but as a knitter most friends will say my choice of project tend to be very challenging. I also realized that I can’t stomach long stretches of stockinette (all knit) stitch. And this may be why I have not made my first sweater.

My favorite past-time to dream about knitting is using Instagram (IG). I have found some lovely knitting people and projects. My most recent tease– or knitting project is an unnamed project @knits.and.hounds using my favorite yarn Quince and Co’s Owl (mix of alpaca & merino).

Here are a couple of yarn photos that I found on IG that give me heart palpitations.

What’s on your knitting radar? What Ravelry group or challenges are you apart of? What yarns are anxious to try? Are there any hats or mittens burning a hole in your queue?
