I felt the want to do one of these today, so I did.
It always surprises me to learn how some people don't understand what it is that I do. Or what doing what I do entails. I'm not meaning folk that come by here, regular readers do of course know! But I guess there are some folk that I interact with in other areas of life who sometimes come to the wrong conclusion. Or only see part of it.
I'm gearing myself up for a week of serious knuckles down designing - work has been so difficult to manage in this current climate, with our way of life and homes and community being under threat. Creativity has been suffocating. Life feels stifled. There seems to be conflict everywhere we look and the atmosphere is a troubled one. But November will see the 6th annual Mystery Knit-a-Long and as much as I think many folk would understand if I had to say that I couldn't manage it, I don't think I could forgive myself (or our circumstances!) if it didn't happen.
So I'm going to damn well make it happen. Somehow.
