I'm waiting for more yarn to arrive so I can finished sleeve #2 on the test knit sweater, which means I have no need to feel guilty that I'm not knitting.
In celebration, I finished a pillowcase I'd been embroidering.
I realized this year that I needed* a pillowcase embroidered with Christmas ornaments as well as a pair of great striped Christmas socks. I have yet to find the right colored yarn, but I'm confident I will.
This pillowcase is actually for a friend. I plan to make myself an identical one.
As I wait for my yarn, and once that sleeve is finished, I can put my focus on my new year's intention of not knitting so much, of giving myself space to rest and let ideas percolate rather than focusing on Getting Things Done.
And I realize I have no idea how to do that.
*I need them in the same way that I need dark chocolate.
