I feel like my body is betraying me.

Twenty eight years I’ve lived in this body and it’s constantly changing.

My blood feels toxic.

Riddled with pain. Aches. Lumps.

I don’t look forward to waking up.

Me legs are sore.

The cold penetrates my joints.

And yet, I knit.

I knit to forget.

I knit to heal.

I just knit.

US 2 needles

Ella Rae Lace Merino



1. Oh, I am so conflicted!

2. My mood changes, big and little.

3. During Scout’s naptime, I tend to get things done.

4. Jem has pink eye! ; are you kidding me???

5. Right now I’d like to be vacationing.

6. My Kitchen Aid Mixer is my favorite gadget.

7. And as for the weekend, tonight I’m looking forward to a quiet evening, tomorrow my plans include whale watching and Sunday, I want to wake up late to breakfast in bed!

  1. I love the Norwegian Baby Cap, it’s so sweet on Scout. I’m also terribly jealous that you get to whale watch! The only thing we’re watching is the ice and the temperature drop. It’s -12 right now. Ugh. I hope you feel better soon. -Knittingupnorth
