I could not enjoy Monday Knit nights more! I appreciate all who come by. Why? Because of the purest basic need to be Inspired. When I am really needing to get my most recent project finished, I know that just by showing up I will be motivated by the others to finish it. Its almost like we cheer each other on. Those who show up with their knitted projects, either wearing them or work in progress inspire all of us. We give each other praise ; we admire those that finish their UFO's (unfinished projects) We are inspired by their sticktooitiveness!
When I am on the sales floor I always tell my new customers that I am a beginner Knitter. Even though I have been knitting since my mother put me in 4-H in the 3rd grade, I still enjoy the most basic of knitting projects the most. I enjoy the repetition and rhythm of the knit stitch, and I knit using large needles ,standing and talking and knitting at the same time. Of course this is not genious; but non knitters think this is so. I am basically a lazy knitter,challenging myself to choose color, texture and appropriate gauge as to make a successful project at the outset...then its pure joy from there! The feel of the yarn, the drape and hand of the scarf, the feeling of no- worries until the project is completed. I love to knit to de-stress.
I usually have about 5 projects in progress and these do not include my mothers, or other gifts for neices, godchildren or new babies!
So Please keep on inspiring me knit club! You both challenge me and thrill me! Just by being there on Monday Nights! Every Monday 6 to 8pm..Open to All!!!
Happy Thanksgiving! Dee
