It feels good to be knitting. I don’t want cross stitching to take over so that I no longer knit and I’d love to do some sewing once I get the sewing room put together.
One of the thing I love about the crafts is the social interaction and for me, that’s mostly always been online. I feel like I don’t fit in at all with the knitting community. By no longer participating in the big knitting online group, I’m not keeping up with anything in any of the groups I used to love participating in. At first, I wondered if that was going to temper my knitting desires but I think it actually is helping me because once I finish this test knit, I’ll probably drop completely out of the knitting social scene. I won’t be tempted to buy new patterns (because I’ll never see them!). I have plenty of patterns that I love and we know I don’t need fabric. It takes time to read all those posts, look at all the patterns, shop online for yarn so all that gives me more knitting time.
As of now, I feel comfortable with the cross stitch community but, for the most part, I haven’t heard a lot of politics or what I consider crazy talk. I guess I’m not really interacting . . I’m just absorbing from the flosstubes.
Anyway, I’m comfortable with what I’m doing. I’ve gotten past missing the knitting forums but I do want to keep knitting. Y’all don’t let me stop, ok?
