Today, once again, we in Maine are snowbound. 10 inches, they predict. But this time I have no plane to catch...only a theater ticket for tongiht, and the play will probably be re-scheduled. So I am cozily at home, with a fridge full of food; and I decided to use this unexpected time to deal wiht a negected project. 

No, not a book manuscript, though that is also on the agenda.

This is: knitting. I used to knit a lot. Then I got a kitten and knitting became a lost cause.  You simply can't knit with a kitten in the house.  So I tucked it all away, and when I moved last spring, I moved several tote bags filled with yarn, knitting paraphernalia, and some half-done projects.  I put them in a  closet in my new house. And there they have sat until today, when I decided to sort through them and organize them and re-identify myself as a knitter.

There were a lot of quandries...one third of a baby blanket? Half a hat? Part of a mitten? quandries. Most of those things got tossed out.

And then there were things like this:

 

 

I remember starting that scarf. It was tedious. But the yarn was expensive...so do I want to throw all that work...and all that $$$$....away?  Maybe I will take this up again.

 

But what about this?

 

This is one blue striped sock, and maybe two inches of the second.  Do I care about these socks enough to resurrect and resume this?

And now that I have organized all the balls of yarn in the drawers of a chest on my sunporch, and another drawer now holds all the needles and stitch-holders and scissors ...and another contains various pages of instructions, and some pictures of potential projects...

I realize that I still have THIS to worry about, even though THIS will be three years old on April 1st:

 

 

Oh dear. Meow.

The sock on the chair with Lulu underneath is very familiar to me. I made this pair for my oldest daughter years ago. She wears them all the time, they show no signs of wear and she loves them. At the time it was a struggle to finish them and it was when I learned I don't like to knit socks. But I finished them and every time I see her put them on it warms my heart. So, please finish them. You'll be glad you did. I have many UFOs...as all us crafters do. Sometimes they reach completion. But even if they don't, I've usually learned something.

Dear Ms. Lowry, I LOVE that you are a knitter. I had a feeling you would be, and I found this post on Google a few minutes ago. I, as the rest of my colleagues and friends in Savannah, GA are excited to meet you next week. Wishing you a finished pair of socks and safe traveling to the South. Kind regards, Patty Knight

green mountains and rivers, fertile land of thousands of hectares of spring, it will be intoxicated them; when you face such as gold like silver, fruitful autumn season, will be delighted. You have ever thought that the spring is full of cold after the baptism of the heroic, that the beauty of the autumn is to accept the crystallization of the heat after melting. Looking back, in fact, our life is also true Do not experience some of the ideal and struggle of the bones of cold, how can the harvest of the nostalgia? Ideal. Is the first layer of the realm, like a tree, but it is only just a seed. The gloss of life needs to be modified, it gives the brightest light of life. With it, we will adhere to the road belonging to our own farther and farther, ideal, can be a lifetime of ideals, a stage of the ideal, a year of ideals. But the ideal is also very small, even a month, day, hour, a minute of the ideal can ignite your heart the most beautiful fire of the stars, so wash away the vast expanse of dust, all the way forward. How the spring flowers bloom gorgeous, how the summer stars flashing Yinhui, the road of life, how to sail, attracted a poetic to Bi Xiao? I think the answer is very simple - that is, so that the heart can grow into a tree 'seed' landing, take root, germination. Struggle is the second layer of the realm. Big trees and then large, it also needs to grow the process. Youth itself, is a bright and dazzling vocabulary, is in such a brilliant old age under us. Young heart can not help but also look forward to a lot, yes ah, who is not eager to become their helmsman, lead the life of the boat into another vast sky? From the students who concentrate on reading literacy literally become a rush of office workers, we crossed the adult dividing line, the most gorgeous chapter of life from here quietly staged. Bent on flying out of the wing of the parents, fighting their own heavy Xiao nine days, after all, my youth, by our own master! And just loudly shouting slogans, desperate to leave the greenhouse, the face of boundless heaven and earth, we are confused, whether the Cheap Nike Shoes calm: my youth, how do I call the shots? In life, everyone will encounter unhappy things, suffer setbacks, misunderstanding, criticism and Nike Kobe Bryant Shoes Sale so on. At that Nike Air Presto Mens Shoes time the feeling is undoubtedly an insurmountable obstacle. But this is not growing ups and downs, the growth of trees is the need for sunshine with nutrients. When necessary, please generous your confidence and courage. Remember: the flowers in the greenhouse is long, but the bones are always free from the fragrance of the people. Harvest, is the third layer of the realm: the autumn came, our trees will really grow up. Its growth reflects a shining road of life. And whether the 'tree' is tall and straight, foliage, and even opened the flowers, the fruit of the fruit. Do not say that the final harvest of this tree is Cheap Nike Shoes Online equivalent to its past pay. As long as it is harvest, it is already a result. As life, success, then harvest flowers and applause, failed, they harvest a lesson, how many lessons, and then from scratch again. As long as we use the dedication to break the fate of the yoke, with confidence and courage to light life. Planted the ideal, unremitting struggle, I believe that there will be 'goose greedy heart to go, the mountain good month' of the day, I believe there will be harvest! Past songs, in the journey of life, despite the ups and downs, have regret, but did not Authentic Kids Nike Shoes lose the beauty of youth. Believe in yourself, hope always have, let us remember that sentence: missed the sun, I do not cry, otherwise, I will miss the moon and stars. So Womens Nike Free Shoes let's get together!Insist on for what? Everyone is clamoring you just look very hard, everyone shouting hoarse life not only in front of the eyes, everyone is trying to find a want life, so in this way hard ahead. So why should we work hard?A wave more than a wave of strong, do not be beaten on the beach after the waves. After the Discount Nike Womens Shoes waves push the waves, a wave more than a wave of strong. Competition society, fight is who is more capable, who is more in the community neutral place. Everyone to survive the survival of the fittest, you do not fight do not grab not to work hard, the result can only be rotated in situ, so he can only look high above others light. We have heard such a passage, the world's most terrible is not someone better than you, but better than you are still working hard, then why do not you want to fight this. Never afraid of late, fear of life is mediocre. His child hit my child 1, the arrogant opening that no one on the one hand you lose ten thousand, I have enough qualified to come up with fifty thousand or even 100,000 let the children back. Before the spread of this sentence on the Internet, at first glance will feel funny, but in this sentence is hidden under what nature? Imagine if you have money, then when someone else insult you insult your child, you are fully qualified to have the money to come up with more money to go back, it is not education of children violence and vanity, but not Willing to let their children or themselves to bear s

You finally did not even think about it, you think you are also considered hard, hard work, and you hold ambition, the results you did not see the expected achievements, you give up. You can only be a wage earners! Why have you been a migrant worker? Because you drift, near ink black, do not think of progress, money is not, dead love face! Because you fear your parents, you listen to your relatives, you do not advocate, you dare not make a decision. You think of tradition, just want to earn some money to marry and have children, and then sick and die, take your parents exactly the same way. Because you are born fragile, brains just want to do the work on duty. Air Max Shoes Because you want to do business without you, you want to sit at home and so on, Because you Nike Air Max Shoes Sale complain that there is no chance, the opportunity came to your side when you can not catch, because you will not catch! Because of your poverty, so you are inferior You retreated, you dare not do anything! You will only work for someone else! You do not have special skills, you only Nike Casual Shoes Mens Online Outlet make brute force! You and your parents, like a vicious circle! So, you will always be a working worker who has been working! Many people want to seize the opportunity, but to do one thing, often to find a lot of reasons for their own has been in contradiction!
