Life Is Too Short for Shoulds

There's one problem with having so many crafts that you love to do.  You can't do them all at once. After spending the last month knitting my Hiro sweater I had the urge to do some spinning.  I still have over 2 pounds of my brown fleece left to spin.  But when it's all spun up I probably won't cast on for that sweater until the fall.  That is some heavy wool.  

And then I remembered I had my Less Is More Sweater that I spun for last July for Tour de Fleece. After I started knitting the sweater it became apparent that there was no way I had enough yarn.  So I bought some more fiber a couple of months ago to spin for it.  

It's only 4 ounces and I can get that spun pretty quickly.  Once that is done and plied I can start my sweater again.  It's a short sleeved sweater in pastel shades which would be perfect for Spring time.   

And then I remembered some gift knitting I wanted to do as well.  They are some very deserving recipients too.  They love my knitting and wear whatever I give them frequently.  I really should knit them something.

I sat back, I thought about it.  I started knitting on the gifts.  I went to www.  And I ordered gifts instead.

Life is too short for "shoulds".  

PS - I started knitting a Weigh It Shawl with my pretty yarn from yesterday.  But alas, I didn't have a size 9 needle.  I SHOULD have that size, but I don't.  Another one of those "shoulds"

So much spinning and knitting we want to do and so little time to spend doing it!

I agree with you. Life is way too short for shoulds. I feel like everyone is becoming a little more lively with spring coming. I'm waiting on some yarn to get here so I can start my friends baby blanket.

I am with you of being short of time and having too many hobbies! 24 hours is not enough

hmm, I thought I published a comment but now I'm not sure.. I gave up 'shoulds' years ago when it came to knitting for gifts, sometimes the list is way to long and daunting!!
