Teacup likes to knit as well as quilt...like all cats, she has to be in the middle of everything! At least in this picture she is using her knitting manners...she can be a very naughty DillyDally!
With everything that was going on this week...I didn't get a lot of dillydallying done, but did make some progress on the cardigan for Sister DillyDally that I shared on the last post. As you can see, it is knit from the top down...with the actual collar knitted last. The pattern is well designed, I haven't hit any snags yet and the yarn is heaven to work with. I'm loving it!
Watching the teens enjoy themselves last night...their ability to entertain themselves...reminded me of what an important skill that really is. I remember as a child, when I would tell my mother I was bored...she would very pragmatically tell me to find something to do. I learned that it wasn't anyone's obligation to entertain me, I needed to use what resources were available and take responsibility for my own feelings. That lesson was so empowering...identifying one's feelings...addressing them proactively...the result is taking responsibility for those aspects of our life we can control. Soooo...you see...dillydallying is taking action that brings joy, content and entertainment into our lives...we're creating our own fun! Now, go...be proactive...DILLYDALLY!
