You are where you are meant to be.

Ever end up in a place you have never been before, but after you get there you find out why?

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.

But I want to work on the Tangled Yoke Cardigan which was started this week.......Yes, "Started"

Yes, I definitely ended up somewhere that I never thought I'd be, and it's working out fine ... DENVER! Who would have thought it!

Good luck with trying to finish some knitting. I understand. I'm now on a mission to finish as much as I can, but still I start new projects. It does feel good to finish, though.

Yes, that was awesome. I almost didn't go get my shot butI did at the last minute. I was so surprised to see you when I walked in since you were pretty far from your home. Dinner was good, the Pomegranate Margeritas were great, knitting with my friend was awesome, you being there to make me smile was priceless. Thank you!
