Hi, there! I was great to meet you at Knit Happens, and your blog looks wonderful. Your Trellis is coming along so beautifully; a woman in my office is having a baby and you make Trellis a contender. I see you're reading Dallaire's book- we should chat at KH next go around about that.


Change is definitely good, especially if you feel you're stagnating.

A lot of people say that we were "brave" to move to Maine without knowing a soul here. Maybe it was, but it was also scary. Of course, living here has enriched our lives enormously... for the first time we've made friends who share our values and feel a part of an amazing community. I'm not sure what I'm trying to say, except that change can be a very good thing, and you are the only one who knows when it might be time. Good luck!


I was wondering if that recent yarn purchase was an indication of your unsettled spirit....

Mm hmm.


I felt a tug at my heart when I read this post. I was the poster child for complacency for a while, and then I was hit with so many changes that I had to adapt or die. I'm not comfortable with change but I have embraced it like an unpredictable friend that you like a whole lot but you don't quite trust totally. Now I remind myself that I change a little every day so that it doesn't seem so overwhelming - and most of my changes have been very positive, so that is encouraging. And oh - I never read those Bowie lyrics before, even though I've loved the song and heard it a million times it went right by me. Thank you for the thoughtful post.
