Months and Months

I literally haven’t posted in a year.  Shame on me!

I’ve been traveling.  And I’ve been doing a lot of knitting.  A LOT of knitting.  I post often on Instagram but don’t think to blog.  Does anyone still read blogs?  It’s a bit old-school.  We all watch podcasts on YouTube now.  I never turn on my actual television anymore.  All podcasts, all the time.

I’m not knitting custom orders anymore.  This is exciting because I have so much more time to knit for me.  The only negative to that is that now I have too many hats and shawls and socks.  But is there really such a thing as TOO many knitted items?  Bah.  I’m just happy knitting all these new patterns coming out.  Who’s crushing HARD on all of Caitlin Hunter’s patterns?  And Jennifer Steingass?  I can’t seem to knit anything else right now.

I went to Uganda this past January.  It was the most amazing trip.  I sponsor a little girl in this super-small village called Ogooma.  I got to meet her.  Life-changing!

Being in Uganda made me realize how lucky I am to have been born in a country where the biggest struggles I have are really minimal compared to the daily struggle of the people I met there.  Running water and food are still a thing there.  A tooth ache.  Fees for school.  A clean place to sleep.  Jobs.  And yes, in 2018, there are still people who live in huts that are roughly bigger than one of my bathrooms.

I won’t ramble about that… Only to tell you that I will never again see the world in the same way.

And my yarn stash?  It’s getting used!  I can’t really justify spending money on more yarn when I already have enough to last me for at least 5 years.
