In Case

I recently purchased this case at my local yarn shop. I had seen it, or one very similar, over a year ago but I could not bring myself to buy it. "I have a very cute case already" I reasoned with myself at that time..."but this would make it so much easier" I reasoned with myself this time. As you know, the latter won out. I am thrilled with the case and so glad that I finally bought it. I did the same thing once with a Starbucks bullet thermos back when I was in high school. I think I broke down and bought it a couple of years later when I was in college. It seems the longer I wait for something, the dearer it becomes (could explain part of why Matt & I dated for 6 years before getting married, lol). I think knitting operates with the same principle; there aren't many opportunities to rush knitting. Stitches methodically link to one another in a natural rhythm. Slowly but surely something dear and comforting is created. Many people tell me they don't have the patience to knit. I tell them I knit because I strive to learn to be patient. I hope you are experiencing the peace that being patient can bring, whatever shape that may be taking in your life.

Love the post. You actually made me want to pick up knitting again. Goodness knows I could always use more patience. :)
