I must be getting better. My knitting is calling to me.
I haven't knit a stitch in nearly two weeks. For someone whose hands tend to itch when inactive, two weeks of stillness is notable. But I haven't felt the loss. In fact, I've barely noticed it at all.
But yesterday I started to notice. I picked up one of my projects just to touch it. I felt the soft yarn under my fingers. And then I put it right back down. I got busy with other things.
Right now I'm watching a senior English class take its final, and I'm imagining a strand of yarn weaving in and out of my left hand. And I'm remembering that since I got this cold (flu?) I have not knit anything.
I miss it. Finally. I must be on the mend.
