I’m not much for making New Year’s Resolutions… but this year, I am going to try to make (and KEEP) a few. This year I am going to learn to knit!
Yes, really… knit. The last thing I need is another hobby. Knitting is one of those things I’ve actually purposely avoided learning to do because I know that I’ll love it, and before you know I’ll want to spend all my free time doing it… and really… we gotta have clean laundry and diner, and stuff like that.
I avoid the yarn isles at the craft stores… I’m a really tactile person and I can’t resist feelingthe yarns…. and the COLORS!!!! Ahh…. We actually have a lovely little yarn shop here in downtown Hudson. Yep… I’ve avoided it! Oh, I look into the windows and ogle, but I’ve never once gone inside. They had the coolest knit and crocheted pumpkins in the window all Autumn long…. Hand dyed, hand spun, fuzzy, chunky, fall colored deliciousness. I think I may have actually left a nose print on the glass. The shop is right here……
It’s amazing, isn’t it? I just see myself walking into that storefront and never coming out! But… I’m gonna do it this year. Even though it feels a little bit like cheating… like I’m having an affair outside my bear making… I’m just gonna do it. Look for a little report from me once I actually take the plunge and resurface. For now though, back to the teddies!
