Although it may look like boring knitting, this is truly right up my alley, as they say. I stay at home with my two kids, that is to say that I am their full-time caregiver. We don't always stay home--that would be suicide.
Anyway, lately there is no time to knit during the day. I don't think of this as anyone's "fault" but rather just that right now life is busy with two little beings. I have always been sure I will miss the hell out of their little selves when they are even 6 and 8 years old, so I am trying to enjoy them as much as possible. As possible as they make it, that is.
So a 7:30 p.m. bedtime for them leaves me with 1.5 or maybe 2 hours of knitting time at night. And usually I am truly beat. Very spent and don't really feel like spending it doing math or backward flips to figure out something new.
I have to keep telling myself this, unfortunately, because I'm so inspired by so many blogs and projects out there and sometimes it gets to the point where I feel guilty for not pushing my skills more.
The truth is that right now, knitting for me is about getting to my center, doing something I really enjoy and making something that looks nice. Maybe when they are 6 and 8 and I will have the energy to do backflips.
