The Yarn Challenge

October 25, 2013

Days pass very fast. I have the impression that it has been going faster since I turn 30 and feel like I am running out of time to do most of the things I love like Knitting.

Those three past months in Haiti were a blast but I did not touch a knitting needle thanks to all the great travels and fun with friends. The only time I came close to anything related to my life as a knitter was when I met this wonderful woman crocheting and selling her stuff on a street near my office in Port-au-Prince (photo above).

Back to NY and back for my last year of grad school, it’s time to pick up my needles. This winter, I am challenging myself not buy any yarn and work only with what I have available. This decision is due in part to the fact that I have decided to de-clutter my life.  It felt so great to finally get rid of past magazine that I felt like I should apply the same rule to everything else. And let’s be frank pauvrete oblige I should stop buying $50 skeins.
