I knit pretty fast: it’s become an addiction for me. Once I get going, it’s always interesting (and frankly a little scary), after the fact, to try and trace where my thoughts went from the point at which I started to when I finally put down the needles. It’s 100% illogical. Here’s a typical string: need to be careful running this morning, don’t pull that muscle any more; have to be back no later than 11; what am I wearing to work tomorrow?; need to get bags for the pop-up market on Saturday; has Norm finished the prototype of the Starkler mobile yet?; gee, it’s so HOT in here!; is anyone going to ever defeat ISIS?; noon audiology appointment on Friday; send out email to remind shelter cooks; give Ruthie those seashells; call that guy about the hot water heater; it goes on and on and on. I’ve learned to just give in to it and when I’m done, take a deep breath and make a list (I try to leave world domination matters off the list.)
And remember: if you’re in NC this coming weekend, stop by the Perch Studios Spring Pop-Up Market in Carrboro. Saturday, April 25, 9am-1pm at 204 West Main Street. Lots of great artists and loads of fun!
