It seems as if everyone I know had an off week. I had quite an unpleasant dating world kibosh and Tina has declared a boy intervention. While this blow is minor in the grand scheme of my life, it colored my mood sour this week. So I was sad and when I'm sad I tend to want to stare at the ceiling for hours on end, which is exactly what I don't allow myself to do. Instead I pulled out my sock. Yarn and knitting has become my career, which I love, but it's easy to forget during the stress of life that it's also my passion and my comfort. While I finished my socks this week I was reminded how much solace knitting can bring. We all put so much of ourselves into our knitting that, at least for me, my projects become little vessels for what I was feeling when I was working them. My Lantern Luck socks have brought me full circle. While I knit the first sock I was in a wonderful place. I could see potential for greatness in all aspects of my life. My own words were "I am living my dream and feel very lucky." While this is still very much true, one small hiccup made my world a little bit blurry. Knitting helped bring everything back into focus this week. To quote myself yet again, "whenever I wear my Lantern Luck socks I will remember my good fortune, and the potential for renewal." Plus, I have a rad new pair of socks!
