Getting Ready For the Road

This weekend I spent some time putting some projects together. I will soon be on the road for a week and a half and want to take some knitting along with me. I bagged up several projects and I as I start packing, I'll decide which go on the trip with me. Setting things out and getting them organized definitely makes me more excited about starting new projects. I've been tempted all day with the cleaning and laundry to just sit down and start one of them. I've held it off and I'll reward myself when I sit down to watch Brothers and Sisters later.

I did start the weekend off with some finishing. I finally bought buttons for my Calorimetries and I finished the socks I was working on. I can't wait to wear them. I also put the tabs on the knitted Swiffer covers so they are ready for use. I'm really excited about making projects that are fully functional that allowed me stress relief when making them. I also finished the skirt I was sewing for my sister. My Bernina is still in the shop but I was able to get it finished in class. As soon as I get it ironed, I will take and post pictures.

This has been a really tough couple of weeks for me but I know that in light of everything that could be, I am truly blessed. A young family member of mine is having a really tough time and it's caused me to reflect on myself quite a bit. I've also been reflecting on the possibility of the people you depend on to be your greatest support turning into your greatest enemies. There's a fine line we all walk and the internal choices we make daily are the only things keeping us on the right side of the line.

Which side are you walking right now?
