Waiting is hard…
It just is.
As a child I had the hardest time waiting and would fidget and cause a world of trouble, mostly for myself.
If my mother had relented and taught this little left handed girl to knit then it would have certainly solved a lot of her impatient tina-related headaches.
I am still trying to wrap my head around that and honestly I have always thought it was
revenge an even exchange, but I digress.
Back to waiting and how difficult it is to wait for something that you are excited about.
The birth of a child, the end of a story, the beginning of a story, a holiday, visiting a far away friend, vacations, your turn, water to boil, a plant to grow, that first step,
yarn to come in the mail, turning a heel, a blocked shawl to dry… maybe a teacher list to be posted.
So much anticipation and excitement.
Glorious anticipation full of possibilities. I love those full of promise moments and I often relish this time even though it can be a bit hard on the patience muscle.
So what can we do here while we wait one more day for this moment?
What could we possibly do while we wait? hmmmm.. what can we do?
Holy mother of all, you know what we could do?
We could KNIT!
Well, actually, you can knit. Steph, web chick (susie) and I are going to wrap this baby up.
( knit the list, knit the list, knit the list!!)
