Cutthroat Yarn

Because knitting is a cutthroat business

Idle Hands

Jeanette WardComment

Anyone who knows me, knows that I am at my happiest when my schedule is packed to the gills.  I could spend everyday driving around with the family going to a new festival or some kind of historic district.  Today, I started putting together my calendar for the slate of festivals and trunk shows we are scheduled for this summer.  And, I realized, IT IS ALMOST SUMMER.  Since we shut our retail space to expand our yarn line, we have been so busy making yarn and traveling, we have somehow sped through spring. 

I thought that I would have so much time to hang out, start new crafts, have lunch.  So much for all that!  I barely have time to make sure that I am wearing two of the same shoe.  (A real problem that I have had before.  And, Mr. Cutthroat never alerted me because he thought it was a fashion choice.  That's a different story for another day.) 

I feel like time is just speeding by me so fast.  I want to press the pause button to spend more time just relaxing with my little Cutthroat Yarn Family.  If my schedule keeps it up at this same rate, I am never going to have time to learn new crafts and find new historic downtowns to shop.  And, before we know it, it will be be July and we will want to be starting holiday gift knitting at that point.  I'm getting ahead of myself.  But, I just feel like time is getting ahead of me. 

I'm just going to keep on keeping on.  Do what I can, when I can.  And, say to hell with the rest!
