I am always looking ahead. I decided to go home for Christmas, to visit my family, eat some home cooked Italian food and just spend a week doing nothing in the house I grew up in. I am ready for a break, but, having been in New Mexico for a year now, I might not be ready for the cold weather, so I took it as an excuse to make myself a new hat.
I really don't need another hat. I have this one, and this one, this hat and that, but when I saw all the gorgeous new malabrigo merino silk we got in at Unravel, well, I had to buy some. and I had been wanting to make this hat from CEY's Round Pond, and well, now I had a place to wear it!
Besides spending the Holiday with family and friends, I am really looking forward to this trip as a chance to clear my head and focus on things. Sometimes when you are right there and close up looking at things it is hard to see what they really consist of, but then when you stand back and take a glimpse, it gets a little clearer. I'm just talking about life in general, nothing specific, nothing wrong. Just how traveling and returning can give you a fresh view on things.
I am looking forward to that.
