Knitting A Thumb Hole?
So I decided to sleep in this morning since the kiddos went to bed so late and were sleeping in. Instead of getting up and blogging and starting our day, I hid in my room, took the time to meditate, read the second mindfulness training from Plum Village Monastery, and began perusing a book called If It’s Not Food Don’t Eat It. It was next to my nightstand and all my other books I am currently reading were in the living room. Not worth the risk of waking the kiddies up to go get them.
And then the kids got up. And our day has begun. They are eating breakfast, yummy coffee cake from yesterday, and some yogurt, while I get this post up and think of breaking out the Omega Juicer for breakfast.
The knitting has hit a SNAG this week. A big snag. I finished the body of the glove then cast off, easy as pie. Then I watched a You Tube video to try to figure out how to pick up the stitches for the thumb. I knitted a thumb. Then realized that there were a couple of large spaces in the knitting of the thumb AND it was inside out. The knit was on the inside of the thumb hole and the backside was on the outside.
So I ripped it out and have yet to find the time to find another video. We had a blasted busy Saturday and Sunday I played catchup with making a list of things that need to get done in the garden and in my life. The list is long. I am not feeling any pressure to get to it, actually feeling like I have knowledge of what it is, instead of the rambling thoughts in my brain that get lost.
So you can see my needle holding the four stitches that I had to ‘hold’ for later. I will figure this out. I will. I want theses gloves.
I am still reading the Dynamic Laws of Prosperity, and will be for the next five weeks as long as the class goes. And went back to I Need Your Love-Is That True. Funny, the day I finished Stillness Speaks and went back to this one, a friend posted she was reading Loving What Is by Byron Katie. She was loving it, so it will probably be next on my list since I am enjoying the philosophy of I Need Your Love so much.
That is it for my reading and knitting update for this week. Not much to share since I have found myself stuck at the moment. Hope you all are having better luck this week!
