Knitting is Taking Over Running

I am obsessed. Again. I am sitting here thinking about all the beautiful yarn at home, waiting for me. I can't concentrate at work. When I'm stressed out about my metalsmithing jewelry assignments, my mind wanders to my next knitting fantasy. Every chance I get, I'm searching for a project pattern or a stitch pattern. I can't wait until I can get my fingers ensconced in yarn and needles.

I am glad that I haven't donated my running shoes yet. I can use the stock insoles in the pair of slippers that I am knitting. The insoles are not dirty since I replaced them with SuperFeet. I get so excited when I can repurpose items into my knitting projects. Although I'm not a hoarder, I would rather recycle than add to the landfill.

I will be posting photos of my yarn stash soon. Maybe then my obsession will make more sense. Perhaps not.

Right now I am working on a berry stitch scarf. I thought it would match the beret I got from Urban Outfitters. I'll post photos later to illustrate my intent.

Wow, really? I never thought I'd hear that from you, lol! Maybe you can knit your own running shoes, hahahaha, or maybe even your own medal? :b

Ooh! I like the idea of knitting a medal.

I feel for you. I was a knitting fool a few years back but it caused me wrist issues. I am actually thinking of taking it back up!
