It is dawning on me that keeping pace with knitting a full repeat each day on my ADVENTurer shawl is going to be a challenge. Last night, as I sat down to begin my Not-So-Peaceful Knitting again the reality of that fact became very apparent.
And, that is okay…
Because what could be better in the waning days of December to have something to look forward to beyond Christmas!
So, today on my list is to do some Peaceful Knitting and focus my mind on the joy of making.
And, to get outside to do some Peace Walking in the brisk cold air today – a very good way to clear out the cobwebs!
Happy Tuesday everyone! May your day be marked by spectacular moments of peace!
On the other hand …. maybe some days there is time for MORE than one repeat and you would catch up.
The little snowmen in the photo are adorable.
I always find that if I give myself a deadline, the project loses a great deal of its fun and its appeal, so I like your approach.
I completely agree! I like the idea of the Peace Project, but I’m always struck by what a difficult time of year it’s scheduled for, and I know I would be the same with the ADVENTurer shawl. While both of these are wonderful projects, I think it’s even more wonderful if you work on them in your own time frame.
I’m looking forward to lots of knitting during my time off after Christmas!
I am looking forward to knitting the ADVENTurer Shawl, but I’m going to be far behind the times, for sure! It might be the Advent of Spring Shawl! 🙂
There are a few projects I’d like to knit/sew/make for Christmas and want to at least get started so I have some good intentions to wrap up. 😉
Thank you for the wishes for peaceful moments. I had one! I actually enjoyed grocery shopping today while the holiday music was playing. I intend to hit the hot tub with Fireman after dinner and that is always peaceful!
Love the snowmen! …and relaxing about the ADVENTurer Wrap. Hope you found some peace today!
What a sweet collection of snowmen! I hope you indeed enjoyed some peace.
After not needing to unravel in a long time, I found myself unraveling a lot this week on what I thought would be a simple knit so tonight I am looking for an alternative peaceful knitting project
Thank you for the wishes for a peaceful moment or two. The halls are as decked as they are going to be this year so I am looking at the lights on our little Charlie Brown Christmas tree. And you are so right, focus on the joy of making and not a prescribed amount of stitches per day.
It’s the best time of year to relax your schedule! I’ve been knitting away at some Christmas gifts, and I’m nearly finished (only because I started early) — but I’m not going to add any stress by attempting any special seasonal or time-based projects for myself. They are Just Right for some people, but they are not for me . . . at least, not this year. Your projects will be wonderful — whenever you have the time to finish them! XO
Wise words – from all and YOU – have never been said so clearly! Peace is about quiet, stillness, mindfulness, stopping to breathe, appreciate, and I think you’ve found your peaceful approach: enjoying the season.
Your holiday enjoyment is the only thing to be considered and you’ve made the choice that is right for you. I love to walk this time of year, even if it’s a little cold. Mylo keeps me moving and I guarantee walking will move out the cobwebs.
Your snowmen are adorable. Sometimes a challenge isn’t a bad thing- unless it means you are throwing you knitting across the room-not that I know ANYTHING about that 🙂
