Tending to my knitting

tend to one's knitting,
a. to mind one's own business: Don't worry about my work - just tend to your knitting.
b. to devote oneself to one's assignments or responsibilities:  Years of sticking to his knitting finally paid off.  

I am fortunate that I like to knit.  Last night on my way from work to a new meeting, I stopped at the yarn shop and bought a new project to knit.  I have been working for months on a very intricate lacy baby blanket for a neighbor's baby.  One of my favorite docs at work is pregnant with her first baby, and it is a girl and I thought that working on big needles and big pink yarn and knocking out a blanket in a weekend would be a good thing.  The fact that the yarn costs approximately $100. is another issue entirely.  Good yarn is not cheap.  

At the meeting, I sat and knit and kept my mouth shut.  Not a good thing for this alcoholic.  

I have my granddaughters with me this weekend and that is good.  I made a big breakfast of bacon and eggs and fried potatoes.  We will go shopping probably and then get dressed up and go to church.  It will be nice.  Imagine me, a nice nana who takes her granddaughters to church.  
By the Grace of God, no matter how I feel, I can behave like the person I want to be.

My first sponsor used to knit in meetings. People would mock him. He would smile and knit them a sweater.

I am sure you are knitting love into that little blanket. That yarn sounds expensive!

How I wish, Oh I WISH that I could keep MY mouth shut at 'first meeting in a new group'.

In MY new group 'NEW DAWN', about four months ago, I spouted off right out of the starting gate. And it took them two weeks to warm up. I almost quit it, figured I'm too old for this sh** but SO glad I stuck it out, been a source of much necessary learning for me. Love ya! Steve E.

Your dream and mine are the same. I long for the day my granddaughter comes to stay and I can also sit side by side with her in church. May it be!

Love your blog.
