Inspiration

With a new-ish job (it's been a year already!) and a new baby I'm finding it difficult to be inspired. I feel like I don't have time to knit. I don't have time to sit down and think of designs and honestly, I haven't found another design that has motivated me to pick up my needles. I'm embarrassed to say how long it's been since I have knit a stitch. I miss the feeling it gave me. The sense of satisfaction as I watch beautiful yarn become beautiful fabric right from my own hands.

Every few weeks I get a urge to knit and I pull out a few skeins of yarn from my stash and lay them out. I ponder what they could become or what color would be best  for a project I have in mind. I stare at them for a few spare moments and then I'm swept up in my day again only to shove the yarn away a few hours later as I'm laying my son down for bed.

It saddens me that I don't have anything 'on the needles'. I miss my knitting like I miss a dear friend. So many large moments in my life are punctuated by whatever FO I was working on at the moment. And yet this past year, which has been so eventful for me, has seen so few knits (there was one for my son - I hope to share it with you soon)

Perhaps it's a good sign that I am logging into my blog again. Perhaps this means the knitting is not far behind
