Like a river, thoughts flow through me every day. I try to keep these posts as knitting related as possible, though my non-knitting life seeps in from time to time. And with good reason, as knitting is entangled in my every day life. It is a part of my problems and solutions, my complaints, my aches, my joys.

However, this wasn't always the case. Having just learned to knit this past December, I didn't have knitting to fall back on, to just drown myself in whenever I wasn't feeling quite right. Before knitting...there was reading. If you ask anyone who knew me in school, books were my life. I carried one with me at all times. My purses were always big enough to stow at least one. As it turns out, I haven't quite relinquished this crutch. Even now, when I'm feeling hinky for no particular reason, I read.

That's what I've been doing since yesterday. There has been some knitting, but it is done mostly out a feel of obligation and not joy. I hate that. So for a little while I think I'll just read, and not knit. Until I can feel like I'm knitting for the enjoyment of it instead of keeping myself busy or to finish things I started.

Aside from that, I want to share a bit about the Pay it Forward idea Mama E put forth. It really excited me. I love to share. My problem is...I can't think of someone to gift anything to. I read very few blogs and am in touch with even fewer bloggers. There are several things I have in mind for giving, nice things too. Not just leftovers. Hm...I suppose I'll have to get out there more and interact. It might be nice for me.

Kitty's Story

Vintage 008

First, I must confess my name isn't Kitty, or anything even close. It just comes from an affinity for cats. Second, I love to craft, create, and imagine. I can draw a bit, knit a lot, and sew just enough to get by. My world revolves around the loves of my life; my three children. Anything more you want to know about me is on Ravelry or check me out on FB!
