Happened to me yesterday. I was at a place I had never been before, 15 minutes later than I had planned, and when I turned around to leave after completing my business, there was a friend of mine. Not only a friend, but someone I have been thinking about a lot lately, whom I usually see during the week, but not this week; who is going through a rough time. She's fine, but she's dealing with the impending loss of a long time friend, and she's hurting. But I hope she felt better yesterday, even if only for a little while. I tried to make her laugh, and of course made her come knit. And we ate dinner together and drank Pomegranate Margaritas. So even if it was only for a little while, I hoped I helped. You are where you are meant to be.
However, my knitting is not. Okay, I am a Starter, I fully admit that. Always wanting to try the new yarn, knit the new pattern. Startitis. And I have it. The other day my friend Denise asked me why I was knitting some socks on size 0 double points. She knows I'm a 2 circular needle woman. As I paused to consider my answer, if I would darn right lie, or make something up, I decided to come clean. She was thinking that I was trying something new, some new technique or whatever that I would pass on to the lunch bunch, but no, I wasn't. I didn't have a single pair of empty size 0 24 inch Addi Turbos. They are all occupied by orphan socks. Yes I am a starter, yes I get bored after starting a sock. I admit it.
So I need to finish some socks, especially the models for some upcoming classes. Self, do you hear me? I said finish.
