Today I was going to have a huge sort out of my craft room – oops – that didn’t quite happen again. Am I the only one who is tempted to leave the jobs for another day when a social engagement calls? (An overdue catch up with a friend in this instance.) I will return to the crafty chaos at a later date.
After a very little sort out (more of a dive in, then a rummage in a crate of leftover baby yarn ..) I found this pretty green DK yarn, Sirdar Snuggly Baby Speckle. I feel a mini knitting project coming on. About 80g in weight. A hat with a bobble perhaps? I know of a new boy baby arriving shortly. I also have a friend frantically knitting hats for a hospice Christmas Sale. There may be competition for the finished item. Still, it will be a quick knit amongst the other WIPS. I need a break from the two projects next to my sofa (the ongoing DROPS project and also something for work).
If today you are knitting/stitching/hooking/sticking/painting/sculpting/designing I wish you a Happy Crafting session!
I have a new job. I start tomorrow. Well, it is a new job, but it’s kind of an old job too. I am returning to a Company I left more than five years ago, with a little more responsibility this time and perhaps a slightly different mindset. I am somewhat reassured I know what I’ve let myself in for, however I am also full of trepidation and cannot settle to anything today.
If a friend asked me whether they should return to a job they left I would probably say ‘don’t go back/move forwards’ for a whole host of reasons, especially if they left through choice, as I did. I have mulled over this very thing. Circumstances have changed slightly, location of job for one. The Company is moving forwards itself too. I am hoping there is a mixture of knowing what I am doing, plus a few new challenges and new faces.
I am so lucky to be given this opportunity. However, I had kind of gotten used to not working! I’ve been crafting more and loving it. The job is only part time so I shall still sew and I shall still knit, perhaps not quite as manically, but hopefully as productively. Today, however, it just isn’t happening – I have picked up my sewing and held it for ages without stitching a stitch. I have rummaged in the knitting bag next to my seat yet not been tempted to pick up sticks and actually knit. This feeling of being unsettled is just a temporary blip – I hope!
So, a few of pics of a recent trip to Devon, instead of the usual crafty updates in bulk! This part of the UK truly is a wonderful place. Unfortunately for us, the drive there took 8 hours rather than 5, less said about that traumatic part of the trip the better ! Goodbye for now, back another day!
