Apocalyptic Spring Knitting

Image

I’m working a sweater from the Doomsday Knits collection. I’ve been restless, anxious, uncertain lately. A lot of change is in the air. I react to change in two ways typically…I either rush forward, full steam ahead with energy and excitement OR I burrow under the covers, paralyzed with fear. I fear I’ve been burrowing. I’v e got too much to do to burrow!! I’ve turned to knitting as a way to soothe my anxiety. When I’m knitting, I am hopeful and creative.

It’s interesting that  the sweater I have chosen to knit is from a book with the word “doomsday” in the title…the patterns included all inspired by end of the world scenarios. One of the things my husband and I have in common is our appreciation of apocalyptic stories. I think what draws me to such tales are the survivors. Those that make it through ‘the end of the world’ and rely on their ingenuity, guts, luck, and belief that they can carry on in some meaningful way.  That’s what I need to do right now…have a little belief in myself. I can thrive in any circumstance.
