I Don’t Need a Guru

My husband is thoughtful and doesn’t push life where it can’t go. I am usually, on the other hand, frantic like the Energizer Bunny. I go a hundred miles an hour even when that may not be the best strategy. We may be the proverbial tortoise and the hare, except he’s not really slow… but he’s steady as April rain.

Today I have too much to do. How I deal with this, typically, is to sleep less. This does give me more hours in the day. However, I still feel pretty crummy and today I feel worse than yesterday. No surprise after two days of pushing pretty hard!

It’s deskwork I’m doing (writing patterns on a computer) rather than running a marathon, but it’s still very important to me that it be of high quality for my customers. I hold some emotional energy as I work toward getting things to a place that is clear and accurate for those who knit my work without my physical presence.

So when Brian left today he gave me some good advice. “Lynn, work with the current, do not try to go against the flow.”

I do not need a guru with a thoughtful man like that. He loves me, he sees what I need, he says what I need to hear in a loving way.

Off to get my work done… with the current.

    Hey Lynn,
    I saw your brown and blue striped bag (Booga Bag) at Threadbears last night. It is gorgeous!!!!!!!!! I had Matt order some of that yarn for me. OMG… your felting skills are fantabulous!!!!!!! I want my bag to look just like yours.

    I need to know 2 things: 1) What yarn and what color did you use for your i-cords and bag bottom 2) Can I hire you to felt my bag when Im done knitting it??

    It will be awhile before I can get it knitted and it won’t matter how long you take to felt it.

    I can’t wait to take another class from you. Will you be offering classes when your new bag patterns are relesed??? I hope so!!!!!

    Take care… REMEMBER go with the flow!!!!!!!!
