Irresistable single skeins. You know the ones I'm talking about. The colorway that you see in a shop or online and it just speaks to you. You haven't even considered what you might knit with it, but you just have to put it in your shopping cart. I'm a sucker for these skeins.
What do you do with yours? Do you let it marinate in your stash or in a fancy bowl in your kitchen til you know what you want to do with it? That's what I do. I have a basket at the shop full of these skeins (and a lot more at home), and I have a bowl on my kitchen island that has skeins in it that I just want to keep looking at even though they may not go on the needles for years. Or do you hide these skeins away so you can finish what you're currently working on without the distraction? Do you uncover them only to be beguiled by them again and again?
Also? Food. I've recently changed my diet to greatly decrease what I eat and also no dairy or sugar and WOW. After three days I felt great. My mind is less foggy, I don't need caffeine (when I usually drink several cups of coffee a day) and my body doesn't hurt at the end of a long set of stairs carrying Hank the Tank up at night to bed. I'm really suprised by the quick change in how I feel. I did the whole paleo thing three years ago with great results, and now that Henry is nearing 2 years and I haven't nursed for awhile, I'm able to focus more on myself and what my own body wants and needs. It feels somewhat selfish, but in a good way.
What are you pondering today?
