In 2009 and into 2010 I knitted, taught, worked and designed more than I ever have in my life. At the time I enjoyed it, but the result was a big burn out. These past few months I haven't felt like knitting and only done a few stitches at any time, with weeks of no knitting at all.
Now, I'm working my way back, a little bit at a time and only when I feel like it. My plan is twofold: work on projects that have been hanging around for a while and knitting for my grandson, Braydon.
The other thing I've planned is a vacation in April to Georgia. I'll start out with a few days of sightseeing, listening to some bands and visiting friends - and ending with a visit to Stitches South in Atlanta.
I've already booked my hotel room and flight. I've registered for the banquet, dinner and both fashion shows. As for classes, there was only one that I really wanted to take, and I don't want to push my limits and overdo it. I'm going to take a 6-hour class on Bohus knitting with Susanna Hansson. I've got a Bohus sweater on the needles right now and enjoy the historical aspects as well as the yarn and the project.
Now, to decide what unfinished object to work on first.....
Sounds like a great plan for getting back to enjoying your knitting in balance with everything else. Stitches South sounds amazing!
