The month of May

Since I started this blog back in 2006 I've managed at least a post every single month and yet we're fast closing in on the end of May and I've said nothing. So quiet here and so quiet on the crafting front. I hope it is a good quiet. I'm getting a sense of resting. I've started the perfect knitting project for this quiet. A garter stitch scarf. Vertically striped which I find particularly aesthetically pleasing. At the moment it is just quietly pleasing to knit. And knit. And knit on those long rows. Simple stitches soothing my brain, ironing out the kinks rather than challenging it. This is a strangely long fallow period for me but I'm just going with it on  the whole though I had to fight it just to get here at least once this month and say Hi! I thought you'd like a pretty flower to brighten up your day if you stop by instead of a rainy window. So sunny now though I thought those April rains would swallow the whole of May. I know I'm an absent commenter too at the moment but I am quietly reading along and will speak up when I know what  to say again. It's so lovely to see the expressions of creativity elsewhere that are quietly absent here. So with my monthly posting record still intact I'll wish you a wonderful end of May, happy long weekend to those who benefit from the Queen's Diamond Jubilee and I'll see you in June - with luck with a new creative spring in my step and many more posts!

"A sense of resting" is probably exactly what you need. Take care of oyu!

Your project and your "resting" sound perfect - restorative of the soul.

I haven't had much blogging (or knitting) time this month either. I hope that changes soon. But it sure makes me appreciate the knitting time I do squeeze in.

It's always good to rest occasionally.

sometimes its good to pause before speaking- and leave space for inspiration. I've been away for ages and still haven't found anything to say, yet! your camping trip sounded wonderful.
