I almost stopped knitting in May. Finally, after a tumultuous year dealing with job hunting, family balance, and monetary issues, I have a new job. I started just after Labor Day. What an omen! I’m now an infant photographer.
Homage to those volunteers who knit infant hats for hospital newborns. I’ve seen some very nice ones lately in the hospital nursery.
As my paychecks come in, I’ve still not purchased any new yarny goodness. I think with my three lifetimes of SABLE, it is not necessary; AND with the multiple projects on the needles, it would be even more insane.
Over the month of November, I knit infant hats again for Save The Children, my fave non-profit. I got some fun into the plain jane pattern just because. Used up a lot of my lingering acrylics and fun yarns and they’re headed out to babies in need. It was a great impetus to get started again.
Finding time is now my issue. Making time is not hard but something else falls by the wayside in response to a fiber respite. I’m relearning balance with my new job and it’s been interesting. The baby birth rate boomed this Fall due to snowstorms last winter and the economy (you’ll just have to speculate as I did). Those reasons are the best I could come up with, and the nursery says Christmas won’t even slow down.
Thanks to those of you who’ve purchased my one and only pattern. I also had pics of some hats in a new Annie Modesitt book: 1000 Hats. Still have to order my copy though. Not one to deny multitasking, I have a fingerless glove project that is written but not formatted, so stay tuned. Just don’t hold your breath! It’s still crazy around here.
~Best to All and Happy Holly-Days!!! ♥
