#64 KNITTING remains a constant!

I finally recorded a new podcast has been a spell...a difficult one that I am doing my best to stay focused and is only money and not a terminal illness but sometimes that line of thought doesn't really help. Sometimes a good cry and then a nice cold glass of water , some knitting and the good ole' i-pod in the ears (maybe a bunch of hugs and kisses)is the best escape...when they let me escape around here! The kids are being great...I think it is because the parents are staying positive (except when I call my parent and bawl). We will all survive and recover and find our new normal!

With everything that is going on in this crazy economy and everything that is going on in my household including the possibility of needing to move, knitting is my independent solace. I am so full of gratitude for my knitting and my cyber knitting life. It remains a source of sanity.

How do you think knitting will be affected by this disatorous economy. I realize many of you are untouched by the stock markets disasters either because you don't have money involved in it or you live internationally, however this economy is definitely going to touch us all somehow (I hope gas prices don't escalate). How does the economy affect your knitting or crafting life. Maybe it will up peoples interest in knitting in that, depending how you work it , it can be a a financially reasonable sanity saver! I would love to hear peoples thoughts on this AND I would like to know as a knitter, what you are looking for these days design wise...what would you love to knit?

Are you feeling inspired or just tired...maybe both

I am definitely feeling both. I am inspired to submit to magazines that are looking for next Fall designs. I am tired of the stock market crisis and the negativity and dealing with the loss of financial control. I am sick of thinking about and hearing about it and just want to get centered and calm down.

#63 Slight deception...or maybe slight denial?

I have to have a constant stream of self-deception or slight denial going on to make it through life...especially these days. I can't be in denial with my knitting...if I do then I end up with a pattern erro...and we can't have that now can we. Must keep it real.
