the making of days....

there have been some of those blogger award things going round, and over at bellsknits some very nice things were said about yours truly, which really did make my day yesterday.

and because everyone is already nominated and i appear no longer capable of original thought, i will do as donna did, and tell everyone who reads this that you ALL make my day, just by being here. and every blog i read, i read it because it already makes my day a little bit brighter, a little bit easier.

so go on, give yourself one of these!

see, thats the anarchist in me, always trying to find ways to beat the system :)

but in all seriousness, i have had a lot of so-called friends come and go from my life, and i have been sorely disappointed by some in the last year or two, but never by a knit-blogger. is it something about knitting itself that speaks to the kind of person you are? patient, thoughtful, caring, pays attention to detail, thinks the little things count?

i was about to exempt myself from this description because i am always angry or disorganised or impatient, but when it comes to knitting, im not. i think it is what keeps me balanced at the moment, when i cant be like that in other areas of my life. perhaps when the pensky is gone (soon people soon), i can find space for knitting-compassion in the rest of my day.

i hope so!

Why - thank you ma'am - but you're right - I've never been disappointed by a knit blogger either - so there you go! And I'm like you - disorganised and often niggly - but I'm still impatient - there are so many things I want to knit and I never have enough time!

You make a lovely point Kylie about the balance our knitting provides. I've always been a fairly rushed and impatient person but knitting has taught me to slow down and enjoy processes, and to have a focus outside of things that are stressful or difficult. It's good, isn't it?
