Relaxing is something I’m not very good at doing. From the minute I wake up in the morning to the moment it’s time to go to bed again, I’m busy at some activity or another. Even as I try to go to sleep, my brain is concocting my to-do list for the next day. My husband worries it’s going to be the cause of my demise.
To mediate this, I’m trying a slow-time method to end my day. I’m keeping a knitting project by my favorite chair for the evenings. This allows me to still keep my hands busy but is soothing enough to invoke relaxation. Instead of flitting about from one thing to another, I can sit in our family room with my husband which makes him happy.

After reading about a year-long Knit-Along (KAL) on the greetingarts blog, I popped over to KrisKnits’ blog to join her monthly dish/wash cloths KAL. You don’t know what the pattern is going to eventually be, but it makes for an easy yet fun knitting project. At the end of the year, I’ll have 12 new cloths to use or give as gifts.
Fortunately I already had what I need for January’s project in my stash. I immediately knit the rows she’s revealed thus far and am now caught up to the group. It’s not too late to join, if you’re interested in this KAL.
