From LJ - Mar. 29th, 2006 08:44 am
It's been a while. I am trying to sort out how I feel about things. Knitting for example. It's amazing how disappointed I was about 2 failed knitting trips. I was ready to brave 96 hours (round trip) on a greyhound to go to a one day knitting event in Toronto. Alas the great work nemesis aroze and squished the dream flat. I consoled myself by planning a trip to Calgary to see the Yarn Harolt...yeah that trip would have been great if I had made it last year. My reaction to these incidents has been somewhat disporportionate. I have thought about moving, I have pondered another job that won't screw up my plans for vacation 9 times out of 10 (I work retail, good luck to me with that), I have dreamed about opening my own yarn shop (which laughingly so conflicts with the point previous). I want to know why. Yes I am aware I am a Knitter, one of the obsessed few, (to prove the point I am convinced I'ed get around to reading the latest Robert Jordan book if only one of the characters knit) but that doesn't explain the disappointment. Not on this level. My boss and I hit it on the head the other day, we live in a small town , the local lys is Walmart, Micheals (the wal-mart of crafts) and Zellers (Canadian Walmart) thats it. There is no knitting community, or if there is it's so well hidden I feel a bit snubbed. There is me and my boss. That's it. I now KIP every chance I get and am trying convert others-I know they are out there. Someone had to get all the copies of rowan before me. I just need to find them. **gets sock yarn and a net** -Wish me luck.
