Back to Knitting

Would you believe I got up at 6 AM, lit a fire, and then knitted in front of it for four hours? I’m working on a new afghan comprised of squares, rather like a quilt. It has 96 squares. I didn’t really need to start another huge project but my soul needed to. My logical side got outvoted as I played with all the pretty colors of yarn. Then I got a ride to the yarn store and bought more wool. Once again my logical side got outvoted. Then my friend mentioned he bought a giant wool afghan at a yard sale for $3.00.  That’s less than I paid for one skein of yarn. So yeah, I feel a bit insane. But crafts are about the process, not about saving money, right?
