I Made it Monday: Old Favorite

Life has dictated that I will be in a 'sitting' phase for a while.  Pain and kids, what can you do?  It's a challenge for me- I'd rather be getting things done, so I'm faking a sense of accomplishment by knitting dishrags. The rhythm of the needles, the counting 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, loop, becomes meditative and relaxing after a long day, and in my life as a mom, finishing something, anything, that isn't undone five minutes later is so, so gratifying. TV is almost guilt free when I knit.  I'm using the same ball band pattern  I did during my de-stashing month.  I guess we go back to the standards.  I love playing with color combinations, and it's nice to have a little stash of gifts for holidays and thank yous.  With any luck, this sitting time won't be long, and I'm glad I can  feel like I'm doing something.

And I'm with you, TV is totally guilt free when I'm knitting. Here's a link for my favorite:

I think it would be fun to play around with color as well as texture.

Have fun!
