Now that both my sons are in school, I thought I would find a lot more knitting time. After all, they are both in school during the day for the first time in 11 years and I figured that would give me plenty of time to work during the day instead of late at night and on weekends or whenever they were otherwise occupied. Not so. Instead I'm working more than ever (hey it's our super busy season) and not knitting much at all! ACK!
"I wish you sold time as well as yarn!" This is a common lament. I hear this nearly every day from those I'm corresponding with. We all just want to find another hour in the day, another 10 minutes at lunch, just more time to knit.
I've found my time lately at soccer games and at school meetings. But that's about it. What about you? When you're super busy with all that makes up life, where do you carve out time to knit up a few rows? Do you stay up later than usual, sacrificing sleep? Do you force yourself to not work through lunch, instead sitting alone and knitting a few rows? Or do you go without your knitting and just hope for time in another week?
Let's make it interesting and turn this into a Socktober contest! Share with me how and where you find time to knit and maybe you can inspire me and others to find time to do the same. Comment below before noon EST on Sunday, October 14 and I'll randomly choose one of you to win a skein of our newest Poste Yarn winter striping color, Coeur D'Alene. I'm hope to cast on my skein tonight.... that is, after the kids go to bed and I carve out some time for myself!
To me, this color screams SWEATER WEATHER! Wintery but modern.
