I literally haven’t posted in a year. Shame on me!
I’ve been traveling. And I’ve been doing a lot of knitting. A LOT of knitting. I post often on Instagram but don’t think to blog. Does anyone still read blogs? It’s a bit old-school. We all watch podcasts on YouTube now. I never turn on my actual television anymore. All podcasts, all the time.
I’m not knitting custom orders anymore. This is exciting because I have so much more time to knit for me. The only negative to that is that now I have too many hats and shawls and socks. But is there really such a thing as TOO many knitted items? Bah. I’m just happy knitting all these new patterns coming out. Who’s crushing HARD on all of Caitlin Hunter’s patterns? And Jennifer Steingass? I can’t seem to knit anything else right now.
I went to Uganda this past January. It was the most amazing trip. I sponsor a little girl in this super-small village called Ogooma. I got to meet her. Life-changing!
Being in Uganda made me realize how lucky I am to have been born in a country where the biggest struggles I have are really minimal compared to the daily struggle of the people I met there. Running water and food are still a thing there. A tooth ache. Fees for school. A clean place to sleep. Jobs. And yes, in 2018, there are still people who live in huts that are roughly bigger than one of my bathrooms.
I won’t ramble about that… Only to tell you that I will never again see the world in the same way.
And my yarn stash? It’s getting used! I can’t really justify spending money on more yarn when I already have enough to last me for at least 5 years.
