Why I enjoy mindless knitting the most
(and Why I bleed Cubbie Blue)
If you've stuck around irisheyesknitters long enough, you know that Kathy B. (that's me) is a plain knitter. I throw in Lynn and Al's knitting for some pizzazz. ( Hey Lynn and AL, I need you to send me pizzazz. )
I've been thinking about why I get so much comfort from Knittitng and knitting and knitting stitches. I can be content without a purl at all. I can increase and decrease and use a pen to mark off rows in a pattern repeat. But,
I DONT WANT TO!
I think it has something to do with my work. Being a nurse means no downtime at work. I love being a nurse.
When I get in the door at home, I often don't really speak much. Sometimes I can't even pick up the needles. I need to sleep first. And when I sleep I dream....about work. When I am rousted from a good hard slumber, I am ready to knit.
I like plain things.
I like the PLAINS. I dont like mountains (sorry, I like YOURS but I dont want any)
Im happier in Nebraska than Colorado.
I like plian food the most. Fresh bread and butter.
I like baseball. I love hours of endless slow baseball. Pitch by pitch.
The radio is always on for the games, whether Im acitvely listening or not. It is great white noise.
and I bleed Cubbie blue. I doubt there will be a World Series in this our 100th year as Cubs.
It is opening day at Wrigley. The rain is falling now. Drizzle at the moment.
I even like watching them pull the tarp on and off our real grass field.
I really do.
Am I fascinating ? No. I don't even try to be. Yawn.
Is it nap time yet?
