Watch out the Dam Did Bust!

Isn't it wonderful that we have a boundless outlet for finding free items to encourage us to knit? We have blogs, patterns, knitalongs and many other ways to expand our fun. The patterns are there for anyone to take and use appropriately for enjoyment and certainly to take a stressful day and make it all wonderful with two sticks and ball of yarn. I know I can start knitting and soon the muscles release the tension from the day I have had. Here is the catch. Watch out for overload when it comes to committing to too many groups, blogs, etc. It is so easy to say, yeah I can add that item to the list, only to find out that your tension gets worse because of the desire to do too much! I am so guilty of that, over zealous need to fulfil a deep desire to become a part of everything that is going on the knitting world. An example, do any of you feel guilty about working so hard on the computer that you don't have time left to knit. Please, if there are any of you out there that has an answer to help me and maybe some others too, do so. This is the time to put in some of your thoughts on the subject. There is a lot of other people in the same position that don't know what to do and make themselves in a position they don't want to be in.

Yes, the dam did bust. Too many things to do and no time to do all of them. It is a wonderful group we belong to and a great desire we have to knit. I guess, those of us with this problem, we will have to process our brain messages in the order they should be done. Not collecting, but knitting. Thanks goes to all you very talented persons who give us the wonderful projects to do, and we will keep doing them, but in a much more thoughtful and organized way. Hope I don't sound negative, I just want you to know that I need help in this area and hope some of you who don't will read this blog for today and maybe you can share how you handle this problem. Thanks so much for reading this, my desire is to open our minds to the possibilities knitting affords us.
