v. to give oneself to the enjoyment of
My knitting has been limited — a row or two or four, at best, most evenings — but it occurred to me the other day that I could possibly reframe my thinking.
Perhaps I am savoring my knitting right now… giving myself to the enjoyment of knitting!
Last night, I savored the deliciousness of 3-needle bind-off!! Blocking is going to make a huge difference there, and I'm so excited.
I also bound off the neck edge, but blocking was not going to help that situation, so I tinked it and will re-try this evening.
Oh my gosh, SO CLOSE!

At this time last year, I was savoring this project:
Some might have called it "obsessed." Haha. I've had my Alabama Chanin Car Coat project at hand for a while now, and I think I'm soon going to dive head-long into that with the Wisconsin Blingfish frame of mind.
Last September, I took the first of two trips to St. Louis. There are no firm plans, but the idea for a third trip has suddenly reared, having just learned about Ruth Asawa: Life's Work at the Pulitzer Arts Foundation. The exhibition runs until mid-February, so I'm thinking after the holidays… but I'm so excited already! I saw a few of her pieces at the de Young Museum in 2010 when I visited with Celia and it would be amazing to see her "life's work." Oh my.

I have an appointment with a highly recommended physical therapist tomorrow morning. I'm excited about that, too.
