Focus Shift - New Passion

I feel like one of those drivers who pulls the emergency brake, steps on the brake pedal and wrenches the wheel around all at the same time!! Why would I want a blog about what I do all day instead of what I like?
OK, so STOP. I don't want to talk about package labeling, labeling law, USDA labeling regulations, product nutrition, or anything related to these. Anyone who's interested go to the FSIS website, pull the Labeling Guide and read.
I want to talk about knitting. I've been bitten by the knitting bug. I've knitted before, but not with passion.
In my dotage, I'm finding that I grab onto new passions with much more - enthusiasm - than in my younger years. I learn more about the new topic, I immerse myself in it. It may be age or just something in the water... but that's how it is.
So now I want to knit, and learn about knitting. I want to make nice warm heavy knitted fabric in simple boxy styles that appeal to me. I'm making a sweater. I joined Ravelry and several other websites. I read knitting blogs. I really like this. It's calming and centering.

  1. Hi - I connected to your blog from Ravelry. You helped me with information about LYS in Kennebunkport. I am also a "new" knitter who is older and wiser! I started knitting again about 4-5 years ago and jumped in with eyes open. I love it. My friends and family still shake their heads but I don't care. There is so much to learn - yarns, needles, web site, etc. I won't retire for 7 years yet but am looking forward to it. Until them I am building up my stash!
