Once upon a time there was a knitter known on the internet as Cricket54. Cricket was a fairly new knitter fumbling her way through learning how to knit with help from friends and the wonderful informative sites she found online. She had some problems in 2009 due to a back injury and gives knitting full credit for helping her keep her sanity during the long wait for surgery that fixed the problem.
This year, knitting saved her sanity again (except for the fact that she's suddenly begun to post her blog in the third person for no apparent reason....*ROTF*) by helping her deal with an extremely stressful year at the office.
Okay, back to first person. I'm ON VACATION THIS WEEK!! *happy joyous dance* With any kind of luck whatsoever the most strenuous thing I'm going to do is knit and drink copious amounts of coffee (my drug of choice). I have several different projects on needles at the moment and hope to make some progress this week. I'm not putting any pressure on myself about it, though. Nothing has to be finished this week. NOTHING. I plan to knit while relaxing, and if I get tired, I'll quit.
This is my week to chill out and recharge my batteries. My motto for the week: "The dustbunnies have waited this long, they can wait a few days longer!!"
Hope your week is as restful as I plan for mine to be, dear knitterly friends!
