we’ve gotten a lot of attention at our new location! people going to the chinese restaurant stopping by to see what we are about! walkers on their afternoon stroll popping in to tell us how glad they are we just moved and didn’t close!
we always ask if they knit or crochet. and more often then not we hear “i used to but i don’t have time now!” or “i want to learn when i retire and i have more time!” or “life is just so busy i can’t seem to find the time!”
notice a thread! TIME!
we have so many demands on our time in this modern world. as a working parent, i totally understand. there are all the things we have to do. my husband calls it the adult stuff.
all work and no play makes jack a dull boy!
we need to have a hobby to make our lives fun and enjoyable! we only get this trip once so we need to make the most of it! some folks garden or run or read. others play video games, watch tv, or do jigsaw puzzles. something that gets you to your happy place mentally, physically and emotionally.
well knitting, crocheting, needlepointing, and weaving bring me to my happy place. i can do them while i’m watching tv with my family. or when we are driving on vacation. i take a small project to dinner with friends and sit knitting away while we chat before dinner. my husband says that if i’m sitting i’m knitting. and that’s the truth. i find time to knit. i make time to knit.
well we got to going on at the YARN mart! no more excuses!
