My mom's here. She's knitting up a storm. Every time she comes down for a visit now I want to knit something new. Last time it was this scarf. This time we found this pattern, the Kelmscott sweater. So dreamy. But why do I always try the difficult ones first? Why do I pick impractical items to work on? Why can't I just be normal, and pick a simple project?
I'm crazy, that's why. And I'm a little bit down (long story), and when I'm down, working with my hands is therapeutic. So is having my mom here.
Need to go get some yarn today. Just the thought makes me happy.
