That is the question

The big question lately has been "In the little bit of spare time that I have should I blog or should I knit?" You all know that I love you but the prevailing answer is usually to knit! In an email to my Secret Pal I told her that I'm someone who needs a bit of time in my day that involves being alone and being still. During that time I think, pray or listen to something inspirational and always knit. If I don't get that time in I find that I'm more apt to be a little short tempered. So consider it something that I do for my own sanity!

Since I'm not getting in much knitting time while at home I'm having to sneak it in here and there. My favorite place to knit at the moment is while in the parking garage before work. Bryan and I do the child/car exchange at his place of work and then I drive to work in his car and he goes home with the kids in mine. I usually have 20 to 30 minutes before I need to clock in and so I sit in the car and knit while I listen to something on my iPod.
These are some socks that Bryan has claimed for his own. It made me absurdly happy that Bryan wanted these socks. He more than tolerates my knitting, but I think it is mostly because it keeps me happy. Not often do I work on something that he loves. The last time that happened was when I was making the Log Cabin blanket for Ailish and he fell in love with the colors! So when Bryan says that he wants something that I'm knitting you can bet that he's going to get it.

Owen is pulling at me and asking to take play in the bath tub, but before I go here's a picture of a very old barn by my house that is finally giving in to the effects of time. There are a lot of old barns near my house and I love all of them. As sad as I was to see that this one is falling I think there is something still beautiful and proud about it.

I'm glad you still find some time to knit and do something just for yourself... thats much more important than blogging responsiblities....we'll always be here ;)

All the knitting is done one stitch at a time... get it in when you can. I too love those socks!

Please, knit when you can! That's what I do. That is also why I do mostly mindless knitting so I can easily find my place and get a little bit done at a time. Glad things a working out well for you. Hope you can make it to the knit-in.
