Do you ever have those days when everything, especially computer work, takes twice as long? When I’ve had a couple of those in a row I know I need to take a break, but not stop 100% of my work. I call it filling the tank. I am off of the computer and math and super linear work for a day. Instead I focus on the creative and planning, spinning, knitting, reading, thinking.
That’s what’s going on over here today. Yesterday was an excellent mail day, it was a sign.
I got this:
Finally! For those of you still waiting, I can say there is no predicting the US mail. Everyone all around me in Michigan got their issue days before I did. But mine is here now and I’m going to read it all, today.
I also got the kit for these:
They are from the excellent book Fair isle Style by Mary Jane Mucklestone. The mitts are designed by Spillyjane. I got my kit from Sunday Knits and it came fast! I’m not going to start knitting them yet, but I may wind the yarn.
Today there will be spinning and knitting and Netflix and tomorrow I’ll be back at the computer with my tank filled.
What do you do to fill your tank?
