I’ve been getting in a lot of knitting time lately, but I’d rather it was on my couch than various doctors offices. 🙄 There is an upside though - it’s such an untapped knitting community! My new PT even knits; I met her with this project in my hand, and she was wearing clogs with a stockinette pattern printed on them! The kinship that can happen when #knittinginpublic never ceases to amaze me. Most often I get asked what I’m making, and a friendly conversation starts. Some will mention that they have experience, but haven’t picked it up in a while. I’m sure this sounds familiar to other people that get creative with #placesyoucanknit Do you ever wonder if you help those people fall in love with knitting again? Or inspire them to try it? I can only hope I have. Especially in icky/stressful places like medical settings, I hope I can convert (or reawaken) more people to this soothing and gratifying pastime. Being sick has a few silver linings, but this is surely the best one 🥄😊 #justkeepknitting
In 24 hours I could officially be in training for a job with extremely exciting career potential, eeeeee. That or I’ll be upset and disappointed in my body and/or mind (#spoonieproblems)...this ‘working interview’ tomorrow is the first time I’ll be working in the same physical place as my coworkers since this health debacle got totally debilitating in late 2015. • I really have no idea how my bod’s gonna handle all the interaction and movement and whatnot. I’m optimistic though. (Shocker!) How I feel on Friday and Saturday will be the big tests, as recovering from movement is much worse than the actual activity for me now — there’s so much to distract from the pain when I’m going/doing/talking/verbing. Vee shall see, eh? Please send that healthy juju my way ❤️❤️ • 📸: I love Trader Joe’s. ‘Twas a tasty tasty linner tonight.
