BRINGING OUT MY KNITTING – Day 19 in a year of….

Day 19, August 10, 2016 @4:02

IMG_7099It rained again today.  It was time to bring out my knitting basket.  I did say, if it rains again.  The basket sat untouched in my closet for a few years now.  It holds a lot of knitting needles, wool and not a few unfinished projects – 2 sweaters, 1 scarf and 3 dishcloths.  Oh, the dishcloths are finished.  They are but small squares.

I can knit, purl, do cables, plain Janes, scarves, dishcloths….I can do many patterns.  I can do blankets and even crochet.  I can start but completing is another matter.  So here’s the thing.  In this year of doing different, I’m going to start knitting again.  I’m going to knit till I have a finished sweater.  I’m choosing a sweater because it is more challenging.  It is more creative and creativity can add so much to our lives. Finishing will add self confidence.

But first, I’m going to unravel the sweaters.  I have no idea where I have left off with either one or where the patterns are.  Same with the scarf.  I no longer like the style.  My eyes are heavy with sleep.  I have to stand up and do something else.  Till tomorrow then.  Happy knitting if you are inclined.

About hafong

Hello! My name is (Leung) Hafong alias Lily Leung. You always say the last name first….that is the Chinese way. That is my partner lurking behind me. Since this is my blog, I won’t mention his name. But this is a rather cool picture. You see me and yet you don’t…sort of the way I feel about myself most of my life. So this blog is a self-exploration, an archeology dig of some sort. My tools…..words of a thousand or so at a sitting. I will try for that.
