I wrote in my last post about my latest knitting project. A week on and it looks like this:
I am pleased with the handling of the yarn and the interesting but easy to knit pattern. There is a problem, however. It is coming up too small, and the ribbing is too tight for the main part of the knit. Hmmmm.
Thank you for all your good wishes about my eye, which I am pleased to report is now heaps better.
I was surprised at how very completely my daily routine and rhythm was disrupted by this enforced period of down-time. Despite having written posts for this blog steadily throughout 2016 so far, I was all too easily deflected from resuming any form of momentum.
However, after a particularly full-on couple of days this week, I realised that two of my core ‘grounding’ activities were missing: creativity in some form, and blogging.
I am so grateful for access to a very wide range of wise and supportive material in my life. I was flicking through a magazine and the quote above was right at the end. As soon as I saw it, I knew that it had been placed there for me to read at that exact moment, as a beautiful reminder to step back, calm down and enjoy the moment.
I look forward to catching up with all your blogs over the coming week and I send out much love and hugs to everyone. 🙂
