Time and my Lack Thereof

Over the years, I’ve gotten pretty good at finding knitting time.  Most of the stuff I’ve figured out has a lot to do with housework, and how I don’t do a lot of it. I’m used to being super busy and still getting knitting time in, and so this phase I’m in now is crazy.  Last night, once I finished work, but before I lost consciousness,  I sat down to knit – and this is all I got done.

That’s it, and I’m a pretty quick knitter.  (The irony that one of the classes I teach is "Knitting for Speed and Efficiency" and I’m not finding either around here is not lost on me, I assure you.)  Right now there’s just so much work that I’m finding little knitting time, and it’s making me a crazy lunatic person.  Knitting is so central to my ability to be nice, that soon I will either have to find more time to do it, or stop leaving the house or answering the phone.  It will become a public safety issue.

As a matter of fact, I think I’m going to take 10 minutes right now. Not because it would be slacking on work and that’s a lousy thing to do, but because I am a kind and generous person who cares about the lives and happiness of others.

Knitting right now is probably generous… right?
