Mama Knits Crochets and Quilts

A mom and needle craft blog

Module after module

I am realizing just how obsessive I really am.  If I want to put a happy spin on it, I could say that I am focused.  Sometimes like an unwavering laser.  I, at times, don’t balance things well.  For example, there is no reason why I can’t spend part of my day making and eating a healthy breakfast and lunch.  I could spend a few minutes meditating.  I could take an hour or two and go to the gym and do yoga.  I could spend a few hours knitting, crocheting or quilting.

My husband says I need to exercise.  He’s right, I do.  He says I spend all my time sitting and knitting.  He’s right, I do.  At least right now I do.  I could balance things out, do a little bit of everything, then everything would get done a little bit.  But I don’t want just a little bit of my labyrinth poncho to be done.  I want the whole thing done.  Now.  Or as soon as possible.  Not every project engages me so much, but this one is.  So I sit and knit, all day, as much as I can.  I don’t eat like I should.  I don’t exercise like I should, or meditate.  I sit and knit.  Twenty-three modules to go.
