I consider myself a fairly patient person, and I think I've acquired more patience over the years. Raising children is a good exercise in patience. I don't blow up at the drop of a hat. If things aren't going quite right, I'm ready to take time and make adjustments. Be flexible, take a deep breath, go with the flow.
However, I've discovered that I'm not always so patient when it comes to getting a new DyeWorks project underway. There have been a couple of new projects brewing for a while now. Some decisions have been made - that's always the first step. Now I'm waiting for the pieces to come together. Little things like waiting on a yarn delivery and then dyeing it all up. So while I was ready to get to work on all of this last week, I find myself waiting. And waiting is trying my patience. When it comes to these projects, I feel I have the patience of a strong willed 2-year-old.
Over the weekend I did to myself what I did with my kids when they were 2 years old. I distracted myself with a walk to the park.
I took my knitting along for company. The day was a bit windy and not all that warm, but it took my mind off all the other work I wanted to be doing - and couldn't.
And there was a bonus.
My first sighting of crocuses.
