Feeling mellow

It’s all calming down a little now.  The show went well, the new job is working out ok and today the sun is shining.  This week I have been down the posh end of London for a work meeting, and the train was half empty and on time.  I even got a little bit of hooky done on the train.  My blood pressure has returned to normal levels and I have been headache free for four weeks.  A cynical person might point out the link between this and changing jobs, but I couldn’t possible comment.

When I feel this relaxed I find it easier to come up with ideas for things to make.  I fiddle with yarn and stitches just to see what they could look like.  I sketch out ideas in my notebooks in grubby biro and draw little stitch diagrams so I can remember my thought processes.  Not all of them look the way I think they should when I start to make them, but then I frog and  let them evolve into something more interesting. I like to see where the yarn and my mood takes me.

So I’m feeling pretty productive at the moment.  I’m enjoying the challenge of shawl club and I keep thinking of other things I want to make too.  I need to make time to develop it all but I know I will.  There isn’t a rush, there isn’t a deadline.  Pass me my tea…
