I haven’t been able to admit fully to my husband that I have a knitting/crochet problem, though he has been kind enough to tell me that it is a problem. Luckily I know that he’s joking. I know he is genuinely concerned when I’m frantically knitting at 4:30 in the morning on New Years day to finish a project but that’s just called completing a task on time 😉 The potential of a problem may also be apparent by my interior decorating. I purchase cute bins that match the decor to store my various ongoing projects, it’s cute right?
Or perhaps I have a Healthy problem. I have found a way to work projects while exercising! I envy those who can knit and run. That just spells disaster for me.
I’ve learned that I can’t seem to go without 4 projects lately. I had finally finished the scarf, 2 blankets and bundle of tulle scrubbies/knit wash clothes for the holiday gifts. Now I’m onto a baby blanket, rug, hat and another blanket.
I like to think it’s a good problem. I have learned how to create my own patterns (yes, they’re basic but you have to start somewhere), tackle new projects that require me learn new skills (thank goodness for google, YouTube and great friends who also have a problem) and I just can’t seem to just Sit and watch TV without something productive to do. I can’t help but feel like I’m wasting time. So, this afternoon after taking care of house chores, working out and checking in with my challengers I find myself starting the newest project, the rug. So far so good! It will be for my twin brother. I love working projects for my brothers, I honestly feel they are my biggest fans. One of my bros actually texted me at 12:30 am when he couldn’t sleep because he forgot his Green Bay Packer blanket at my house (mind you this is because all other blankets are consumed by the dog and his wife). So, it’s motivating to know my hard work is appreciated and fuels my “problem”. I only hope that others find a problem of their own.
Here’s to acknowledging and accepting that I have too many hobbies 😄
