Knitting calmer

Flowers are pretty, but working at a florist shop during Valentines week is insanely busy, stressful, and sort of depressing.The worst was today, Valentines Day. I spent half of my day on the phone explaining to procrastinators that our delivery schedule for Valentines Day had been full since the 12th. I spent the other half running up and down stairs while trying to keep up with a erratic heavy flow of customers buying last minute flowers.
My back was aching, my feet hurt, and my mind was mush. The minute I stepped out of the door to go home I felt the stress slowly rolling off of me. All I could think about was getting home relaxing and knitting. Just thinking of the sound of my wooden needles clicking together and the feel of the yarn in my hands made me joyous. I feel truly lucky to have such a relaxing hobby.


  1. My knitting does the same for me Meg! Came to you from your ravelry thread. I've been blogging since 2004. Love it. SOmetimes IM not sure if knitting or blogging about knitting relaxes me more!

  2. Jumping here from the Rav thread as well. It is so very nice to come home and have something soothing waiting for one after an insane workday.
