It’s been a busy and fast summer here. Shelley and I both got in some family time and I had some minor surgery. I’m fine, everything is in working order.
Suddenly Fall has arrived, along with new yarns to be unpacked and put out. This process always involves rearranging part or all of the store; a brain teaser. For example: I unpacked one of our reordered yarns and it was in a pull skein, not the donut shape it had been before. Can’t go on a dowel, can’t go with all the other donut yarns of the same weight. Solution: move them all.
My way of going about this is to think it through, usually from the middle of the store. If this yarn goes to that wall, then that yarn can go there and so on, for as many moves as it takes. I am always reminded of the line from the movie Searching for Bobby Fischer. “Don’t move until you see it”. Still of course, like moving furniture, you never know if it works until it’s done.
As you settle into Autumn, trying to get school, sports, job and other activities all working harmoniously, we will be finding ideas for your game day and evening knitting. Sometimes our busy schedules can feel like a hassle, but many of these events are centered around family and friends. Take time to savor the moment.
Smile, relax and knit,
