One of the ways I have been creating more time for myself has been by visiting social media sites, especially Facebook, much less. I love Social Media, especially Pinterest, Instagram and FB, but I find that not only do they quickly suck up so much of my time, but I often find myself feeling anxious. Pinterest with it's wonderful pictures and ideas can make me feel overwhelmed at times from the overload of choices and FB with so many political posts definitely makes me a bit more anxious about our future and that of our children.
The upside to backing away from the computer a bit is that I have had a lot more time for knitting. In the last few weeks I have finished 2 infinity scarves that I will share once I get the recipients to show them off, 1/2 of a mitten set and this lovely cowl designed by Ann Hanson.
This is a new yarn I am trying and holy moly, this stuff is incredibly soft! It is a DK weight blend of Merino, Yak and Silk.
Once I finish the cowl I will block it out and wear it for a little bit to see how well it holds up and if it does, I will definitely be adding it to the line-up here at The Woolen Rabbit.
