Movement, not Moment

Posted by on Jan 25, 2017 in Crochet, Knitting, Life Strategy! | 2 comments

I’m not done. I don’t believe any of the 3 million people who marched are done.

This is partly because, for me at least, it was a giant pain in the butt. I was on the go for 21 hours, folks. I had had an emergency root canal less than 24 hours before. I traveled by school busNow, I know that most people were waaaaaay smarter than that and rode on, like, a regular bus and so had less of a literal pain in the butt, but I imagine there was plenty of metaphorical pain to go around. It wasn’t easy, but it was just the beginning. Here it is just four days later and I’m already aghast at all the gag-ordering and refugee-blocking and homophobic justice-nominating. There is plenty of work to do.

 

But there is also plenty to celebrate, and we should take a moment and do that.

How to Care

Posted by on Jan 18, 2017 in Knitting, Life Strategy!, Thoughts | 0 comments

This website is new, and it’s incredibly important to me. I’m trying to grow my platform, expand my audience, etc. etc. also I really like blogging etc. etc.

And yet, in this website I’m trying to launch, in preparation for launching a book–make that three books–in the coming months, I haven’t written a post in two months. This is not good launching, people.

I know this, but it’s hard to feel like my knitting is all that important these days. It’s hard to feel like the world won’t end on Friday, so how do we care about anything else?

As usual, it was my daughter who taught me how to care.

I was done shopping—done, not allowed to buy any more yarn, DONE I TELL YOU—at Rhinebeck when I stumbled across the Primrose Yarn Booth.

I bought four more skeins. Sigh.

But see, that’s what an incredible new dye artist does to you…or at least, Kelsey Stephens was new to me. Primrose Yarn Company has only been around for two years, but it’s fast gaining the recognition it deserves.
