First, I’d like to say thanks for all the thoughtful comments to my last post. I appreciate both the support, and the acknowledgement that I’m not the only one that feels this way. I do want to comment that I realize that I’m very lucky – and I know it. I didn’t intend for that to sound whiny or complain-y about my life. My family is wonderful (except for being teenagers/young adults!), and I’m fortunate in my job/house/yarn stash. Its just that I really want something more – I want to feel like I’ve contributed something. Or done something that makes me feel like I’ve accomplished something. But really – it really helped to know that I’m not alone.
Speaking of accomplishing something…
Monkey is the first sock pattern that I’ve done more than once. Its just such a great pattern – interesting and yet I really clip along on it – I’m just about to the heel. Loving the pattern, loving the yarn – colorway is Earth Birth – nice, eh? If you are looking for sock yarn – go buy! Its really wonderful.
And as far as changing my life….I made a very small step to the future that I want (in 3-5 years)….I received this today. I started reading it and I can’t wait to get started. It will help me get where I really want to be….can you guess?
