The Knitidiot's Journey To Being A FEARLESS Knitter!
Thursday, January 31, 2008
Ok, so finally pictures of my first COMPLETED sock, the Mock Croc. I am halfway done with the 2nd and have promised Natalie that I will cast on a new pair on Wednesday....so I have some mad knitting to do!
And then my stash for the shopping spree at Yarn Gallery. I think I have enough yarn to cover 98% of the projects in my Ravelry Queue!
And lastly, I am so thankful to my Wednesday night group -- they make my week! I love meeting new people and making new friends!
Well, I have been knitting for a little over 4 years. It seems that I have mastered the hat and scarf. Working on more challenging stuff and bigger projects.
I am: a new mom, married, homeowner, owned by 3 cats, Diet Coke addict, sarcastic, sensitive, laughs easily and loudly, impatient, loyal, thoughtful, curious, devoted, imperfect, torn between the good girl/bad girl thing, and a seeker of truth. I am all 4 seasons in 1 day.
The moment isn’t a piece of time, it’s a question. A realization. A trauma. The moment comes when you look up and see your life stretching out for seventy more years. And there, in front of you, like a giant roadblock, is the question: Is this life good enough for the next seventy years? But maybe that’s the easy question. The next logical question – Can I live like this? – is the killer. Because it isn’t a yes or no kind of question. It’s a do or die kind of question. Karen Brichoux
I sit on a man's back, choking him and making him carry me, and yet assure myself and others that I am very sorry for him and wish to ease his lot by all possible means -- except by getting off his back. Leo Tolstoy
The question is: am I like everyone else? Anais Nin
You must do the thing which you think you cannot do. Eleanor Roosevelt
I am pretty, but not beautiful. I sin, but I am not the devil. I am good, but I am not an angel. Marilyn Monroe
The life which is unexamined is not worth living. Plato
Most people would rather be certain they're miserable than risk being happy. Robert Anthony
The beginning is always today. Mary Wollstonecraft
